    But, what is car leasing?

    A car lease works like a long-term rental. It allows you to drive a new car for an agreed period of time and mileage. For a fixed monthly rental. 

    You won’t have the option to own the car, but it does mean you could drive a brand-new car within your monthly budget.

    And when the lease ends, you’ll just have to hand it back in good condition to avoid extra charges. So, there’s no need to sell the car or worry about depreciation.

    As technology and electric vehicles are developing all the time, this could help you keep up with all the latest advances.

    So, how does car leasing with Halifax work?

    Simply sign in to your Mobile Banking app or Online Banking and choose from over 4,000 brand-new cars from more than 30 manufacturers. 

    You don’t need to visit a dealer or haggle over price. 

    You can select to lease the car from two to five years.

    And choose a rental amount to suit you. 

    As it’s a brand-new car, it’ll be under warranty – so you get a more reliable and up-to-date car for your money. 

    For peace of mind, you can add a maintenance and breakdown package to include servicing, tyres, replacement parts and repairs.

    Once you’ve selected your options, simply order your car online and get it delivered to you.
