In case of financial leasing, the client becomes the owner of the car after the lease expiry; in case of operational leasing, the car is owned by the leasing company, which makes it a form of long-term rental. The advantage is that you can replace regularly the vehicles after the lease expiry with brand new models.
Operational leasing saves you time and costs. You pay a fixed monthly installment without the need of an initial down payment. All administration is taken care of by LeasePlan, including servicing, maintenance and insurance claims.
The contract term is anywhere from 24 to 60 months, with the most frequently used period being 48 months, however, you are the one to select the contract term.
No, you don't pay any down payment up front, it is not required when closing the contract. You always pay just the fixed monthly lease installment.
In both cases you will pay a fixed monthly lease installment, agreed in the contract. In case of open calculation, LeasePlan returns the potential savings on the maintenance and tire service not used during the lease term.
Open calculation is suitable for companies with large fleets looking for additional savings.
