Personal Contract Purchase
A Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) plan will enable you to purchase your next car with lower monthly repayments. The way this is achieved is by deferring an amount of the total cost of the vehicle to the end of the contract. This amount is known as the Guaranteed Future Value (GFV).
The Guaranteed Future Value plus your deposit is subtracted from the cash price of the vehicle and your monthly payments are based on the balance (plus interest on the balance and the GFV).
By only repaying the difference between the cash price and the optional balloon payment you are only financing the depreciation of the car.
At the end of the contract you have four options:
- You can return the vehicle to the finance company. As long as you have not exceeded the agreed mileage, you will have nothing more to pay.
- If you want to keep the vehicle, you can simply pay off or refinance the outstanding balloon payment.
- You can come back to us and part exchange your vehicle for a new one. If the trade-in value is greater than the GFV, the difference can be used towards a deposit on the next agreement.
- You can sell the vehicle privately and keep any profit over and above the GFV.
