Leasing can be easy too – we call it a car subscription
Subscription is the new leasing
Would you rather lease a vehicle than own one?
Car leasing is widespread in Switzerland, but there are some hidden risks. When you lease a car, you are given the right to use it in return for paying leasing rates. But watch out – leasing services that appear reasonable can often end up more expensive than you first expect. In addition to taking out comprehensive insurance, you are also required to pay interest and take the car for servicing and maintenance. As a general rule, the actual monthly cost of leasing a car is three times its monthly leasing rate.
This is what awaits you with leasing
If you want to get a great deal, it’s worth negotiating with the service provider and making a cash deposit. An opportune time to conclude an agreement is usually either during the Geneva Motor Show (start of March) or garage showcasing events (in spring or autumn). Even though you’re tied to the vehicle, you don’t have any right to buy it, and once the leasing term is up, you’ll have to return the vehicle – sorry! If you’d like to take ownership of your leased vehicle and you decide to purchase it when the lease agreement expires, you’ll have to put your negotiating skills to the test again. It’s vital that you give a realistic idea of the car’s annual mileage to avoid any surprise costs at the end of the contract. It may be that the supplier becomes interested in selling the car to someone else if it’s financially worthwhile.
After all that paperwork, long-term commitment and hidden costs, does car leasing sound good to you?
No, us neither! That’s why we’ve devised the Clyde car subscription – your alternative to short- and long-term leasing. Our subscription service allows you get your dream car for a minimum of three months, after which time it’s up to you each month whether you extend or not – no strings attached. That way, you’ll always be fully aware of the subscription costs – we guarantee that there are no nasty surprises. We take care of servicing, insurance, registration and all that other boring admin so you can hit the road without a care in the world. And if you no longer want a Clyde subscription, you can cancel on a month-by-month basis with a 30-day notice period.
