Check Your Credit Score

What are your finance options?

Hire purchase (HP) A loan that allows you to pay a set monthly instalment. Once you’ve paid off the finance, you’ll own the car. A flexible finance agreement that allows you to keep your options open, so you can part-exchange it for a new car or keep driving it.
Personal contract purchase (PCP) A loan that allows you to pay a monthly instalment, except you don’t pay off the full value like HP. You’ll have the option to own the car at the end of the agreement by paying a balloon payment, or hand the car back and get a new one.
Personal contract hire (PCH) A loan that allows you to pay a monthly instalment, except you’ll never have the option to own the car. PCH is ideal for people that know they want to finance a car but know they want to swap it for a newer model.

Calculate Your Monthly Payments

If you’re confident you can pay your monthly fee and know your credit rating, use the finance calculator below and we’ll give you a rough cost of your credit agreement.
