What is no deposit car finance?

No deposit car finance is when the total cost of the car is financed, meaning you don’t have to put any up front deposit towards the vehicle.

This type of finance is typically only available on used cars, and will depend on the lender as to whether they can offer it. If no deposit isn’t an option, many lenders will offer finance with low levels of deposit.

Is it a good idea to get a zero deposit car finance deal?

No deposit car finance can be a good idea depending on your personal circumstances. If you don’t have any savings for a deposit, it’s a quick a sensible way to help finance your next car.

However, if you are able to put down a deposit that will likely reduce your monthly repayments & overall cost of finance. Having a deposit may make getting finance more likely, as it may improve your affordability position and more lenders may be comfortable with the risk of the deal.

You may still be able to get a finance deal with no deposit even if you have bad credit. The lender will still need to be comfortable you can afford to repay the loan and that the vehicle fits within its lending criteria.

If you take out a hire purchase agreement, you won’t have any mileage restrictions. Whilst if you take out a PCP agreement, there will be mileage restrictions. You will be able to set these with your lender and if you go over these there will be an excess mileage charge.

Yes it is. In fact, it is much more likely you’ll be able to get no deposit car finance for a used car, rather than a new car.

This will depend on the type of agreement you take out. HP or PCP.

If you miss a payment getting in touch with your lender is usually the best next step. You can then discuss your personal circumstances and what options there are with the lender.
