Simple, convenient and flexible - three words at the heart of our financial services. We all know that times are hard, so ŠKODA Finance specialises in providing finance options for ŠKODA drivers. Buying a car is a big decision, but if there's one thing we're sure of, it's that choosing quality shouldn't leave you overstretched. From helpful ways to spread your payments, to insurance offers and servicing plans, we offer a range of flexible finance options that offer just as much value as our cars.
Whether you want to drive the latest model or change your car to suit your circumstances, ŠKODA Finance can help. Solutions puts you in the driving seat. You can pay a smaller deposit (as little as one repayment) and defer a proportion of the cars value until the end of the agreement helping you lower your repayments when compared to hire purchase.
At ŠKODA, we're always trying to make your life that little bit easier for you, and our hire purchase can do just that. With just a 10% deposit, we'll organise your fixed repayments on an individually tailored plan, spread equally over anything from twelve months to five years. You'll own your ŠKODA and keep within your preferred budget.
Our fixed-cost maintenance cover is available for 3 levels of care:
Agree anything between 5,000 miles and 40,000 miles each year (up to a total of 120,000 miles) to ensure you're only ever paying for what you need.
Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) is a finance product that allows you the opportunity to buy a new or a used car.
It is similar to a Hire Purchase agreement as you will usually pay an initial deposit, followed by monthly instalments over a term typically between 18 to 48 months.
What makes PCP different to Hire Purchase (HP) is that your monthly instalments are paying off the depreciation of the car, and not its entire value, over the course of the term. Then, when you get to the end of your agreement, there is a final, balloon payment that must be made if you want to keep the car. The balloon payment is often referred to also as the Guaranteed Future Value (GFV).
When you have chosen your vehicle, you will then agree your annual mileage and decide on the agreement term with one of our Business Managers.
We will then determine the Guaranteed Minimum Future Value (GMFV) of the vehicle at the end of the agreement and work out a deposit and monthly amount that works for you.
At the end of your agreement you will then have three options:
You can normally settle your agreement early by asking the finance company to provide you with a settlement figure. However, the finance company will require you to pay off the difference between what your car is worth, and what you still owe and there may be a difference which is known as negative equity. On the other hand, you may find that at the end of your term your car is worth more than the Guaranteed Future Value, which means you will have some positive equity to contribute towards your next car.
Hire Purchase is a way to finance buying a new or used car. You will normally pay an initial deposit and will pay off the entire value of the car in monthly instalments. When all the payments are made, the Hire Purchase agreement ends, and you own the car outright.
The short answer is yes, you can end your finance early. There are different provisions within each finance agreement that allows you to do just that. If you have got through two-thirds of the way through your finance agreement, the options to end the finance agreement early open up.
For a Hire Purchase agreement, there is an option of paying it off early through a settlement fee. A settlement fee covers the cost of any remaining unpaid instalments and interest payments remaining on the agreement. Once the settlement fee is paid, you take full ownership of the car early.
Under a Personal Contract Purchase agreement, you can also pay a settlement fee for bringing the agreement to an end early. After that, you can choose to hand the car back or you have a second option. Through a PCP agreement, you can take full ownership of the car by paying off the remaining Guaranteed Minimum Future Value also known as a balloon payment.
