What is car operational leasing?

Car Operational Leasing, or long-term operational vehicle rental, is the mobility solution that allows you to benefit from full use of the car you have chosen by paying a fixed monthly rent. And all this without having to worry about the costs associated with its use as they are all included in the service. For both private or business professional use.

With car operational leasing, you get all the advantages of having a car without the usual worries! You can drive the car (s) of your choice and all the costs are included in the monthly rent, even unforeseeable ones.

The monthly rent is calculated in line with your choices:

  • The car you wish to drive (make, model, color)
  • Its usage (the term of the agreement and the number of kilometres you plan on carrying out)
  • The services that you wish to include

With operational leasing, you know exactly how much you are going to pay per month and no surprises!

All the costs related with use of the car are included in the service on just one invoice (preventive and corrective maintenance, car insurance and financial guarantee, roadside assistance, tyres, replacement vehicle, IUC (road tax), MOT inspection (mandatory periodic check-up), claim management, driver helpline 24h per day and personalised assistance), affording you greater cost control and financial availability to meet other private expenses or business needs.

At the end of the agreement, you have the flexibility to decide what you want to do:

  • You can enter into a new operational leasing contract and drive a brand new model
  • Lengthen the duration of your agreement
  • Ask to buy the car

Not all renting agreements on the market cover the same services. Always bear this in mind when you are comparing different offers. Find out which services are usually included in LeasePlan operational leasing.
