How does it work?

The Zero Deposit Leasing pledge
  • Check your eligibility

    Use our car finance eligibility checker to see if you’re preapproved – it won’t harm your credit score and takes less than 5 minutes to complete. We’ll email your decision within 30 minutes*.

  • Search, shortlist & reserve vehicles

    Use our vehicle search tool, where you can refine by make, model, fuel type and more. Shortlist your favourite cars, and when you’ve found your ideal car, you can reserve it with a secure Stripe payment.

  • Finalise your application & start driving!

    Your dedicated account manager will finalise your application and arrange 48hr UK delivery or collection from our Blackburn showroom, getting you behind the wheel in no time.

*If you apply in our opening hours. If you apply outside of our opening hours, you’ll receive a decision the next day.

You could be preapproved for finance and searching for your ideal car in under an hour!

Giving you the tools you need to buy a vehicle

  • Save time & check your eligibility

    No more paper applications or long conversations on the phone; we’ve integrated our eligibility checker into the app so that you can get a preapproval decision with a few simple clicks. It won’t show on your credit file, either.

  • Search & get vehicle recommendations

    Use our search tool to find cars from your favourite manufacturers; then, our vehicle recommendation tool will show you vehicles that suit your lifestyle and budget. We make car leasing personal.

  • Shortlist & reserve your vehicle

    We have a massive range of vehicles from leading manufacturers, so our shortlist tool allows you to narrow down your choices and avoid disappointment by locking in your favourite vehicle once you’ve found it.

  • Part exchange your old vehicle

    You can part exchange your old car and use the funds for your deposit. All you need to do is open up the app and use our part-exchange tool to enter your car’s details; then, we’ll give you a valuation.

Buying a car has never been so simple

Buy a vehicle at your pace

The app puts you at the centre of the process, and because you’re the one in control of the app, you’re in control of how quickly you lease your next vehicle.

Contact your dedicated account manager

Although we want you to be in control of leasing your next car, we’ll assign you a dedicated account manager who’s only an email or phone call away.

Buy quality used vehicles

We give you access to all the latest used vehicles. So whether you’re looking for the latest hi-tech electric car or something more economical, we’ve got a vehicle for you.

Access the best bad credit and zero deposit deals

We get car finance for people from diverse credit backgrounds who have suffered financial hardship and work with responsible, specialist lenders.

We do security as standard

Secure Payments

Whenever you purchase on an app or website, you want to know your payment will be taken safely. So we use Stripe, which is a PCI Service Provider Level 1, the highest grade of payment processing security.

Our Used Car Promise

Every vehicle must pass our 130 point check; we also give you a 6-month complimentary warranty (plus your manufacturer’s warranty) and a 14-day money-back guarantee.

Hippo Protect

If you want extra protection and complete peace of mind, you can add a lifetime warranty, annual servicing and breakdown cover for £39.99 per month. Plus, you can cancel your plan at any time.
