How does car leasing work?


Leasing your brand new car is simple and straight-forward.

Follow these 8 simple steps and before you know it you could have a brand new car on your drive!

1. Choose any car on

Check out our hottest special offers or use our car leasing comparison, where you can use our advanced search filters to find specific models. We've got one of the UK's widest car selections to choose from, with all leading makes and models available.

2. Choose your contract preferences

Select the contract length, annual mileage term and initial payment cost that best suits your needs. You can also opt for a customer maintained contract or a finance provider maintained agreement (for additional piece of mind).

3. Proceed with your order

Once you are happy with the model, contract type and lease cost, send us an enquiry online or give us a call on 0344 387 2727 and one of our advisors will contact you straight away.

4. Finance application

Every lease agreement is subject to a quick finance application that will check your credit history. This is simply to ensure that you can afford to lease the vehicle you are looking to take. 

5. Pay your vehicle deposit and administration fee

An administration fee of £250 including VAT applies to every transaction. This is to cover our costs for processing your vehicle order. 

6. Finance approval

You'll then receive confirmation of your order, which will be sent to you along with a delivery lead time.

7. Contracts

Next up, your finance contracts from the finance provider will be emailed or posted to you to sign and return. 

8. Take delivery of your new car!

Finally, as an ICL customer, you will be assigned your own dedicated advisor who will guide you through the leasing process and actively negotiate with finance companies on your behalf to get you the very best deal possible.

Intelligent Car Leasing aim to respond to all enquiries within 24 hours (exceptionally busy periods and weekends excluded).
