New car finance

Get a new car and finance deal with the bad credit specialists

Get a decision in minutes ✅ - with zero impact on your credit score!

Get Started

Having bad credit can mean you don’t even consider the possibility of owning a new car, but we’re here to tell you bad credit doesn’t have to hold you back.

We understand that applying for new car finance when you have bad credit can feel daunting; the last thing you want is to harm your credit score even more.

However, with the right lender and broker, you can get the car you desire. We believe that people who have suffered financial hardship or have found it challenging to maintain their credit score should still have the option to own the newest vehicles.

 

The Hippo commitment

You should be able to drive a car that complements your lifestyle, so we supply a service and a product that allow you to:

  • Avoid the stigma of bad credit borrowing by working with a trustworthy broker and lender.
  • Invest in your future by owning a car that makes you happy and improves your quality of life.
  • Improve your financial credibility so that future lenders will value you as a responsible borrower.

What type of finance do you need?

1. Personal car finance
There’s nothing like the experience of driving and owning your dream car, so we offer personal finance packages for bad credit customers, which allow you to own the vehicle you want, not the one you have to take.
2. Business car finance
There’s no better way to tell a client your serious than by turning up in a brand new business vehicle, so we offer bad credit finance deals on all our business vehicles and fleets.

3 benefits of using Hippo to finance your new car

1. We’re bad credit specialists
We’ve been working with bad credit customers for a long time and possess the know-how to get the best deals and rates. Having a bad credit score or suffering financial hardship doesn’t have to prevent you from getting a new car.

2. We inspect and test all our cars

When you’re buying a car, the last thing you want is to be unhappy when you pick it up or after you’ve been driving it around. That’s why we inspect and test all our vehicles, and if they don’t pass the test, they don’t leave our showroom.

3. Don’t pay anything towards your finance for 30 days
If you don’t have any money to put down a deposit, we can save you even more money by offering you a no deposit deal on a new car so that you can save up in time for your first finance payment.

Check Your Credit Score

As a responsible broker, we always recommend picking the finance package that’s right for you. You can do a FREE soft credit check with us that won’t affect your credit score, but you can get an idea of which finance package you’d prefer beforehand:

Hire Purchase (HP) A loan which allows you to pay a set monthly instalment. Once you’ve paid off the finance, you’ll own the car, so you can either sell it, part-exchange it for a new car or keep driving it.
Personal contract purchase (PCP) Pay a monthly instalment, except you don’t pay off the full value like HP. Pay a balloon payment at the end of the loan to own the car, or you can hand it back.
Personal contract hire (PCH) Pay a monthly instalment, except you won't have the option to own the car. PCH is ideal for people that know they want to finance a car but know they don't want to own it.

3 reasons to trust Hippo with your new car

As a responsible broker specialising in working with people who have bad credit, we aim to set ourselves up as a trustworthy broker. Here are three reasons to trust our service.

  • All our new cars come with a free 172-point check, and no vehicle leaves our showroom without passing it. If the car comes directly from the manufacturer, it will be subject to their assessments.
  • We offer a 14-day money-back guarantee, so if you aren’t happy with your vehicle, you can swap it for another in-stock vehicle.
  • If you finance a fairly new car, it may still be in the manufacturer’s warranty. But if it isn’t, you’ll receive a six-month complimentary warranty from us.
