No deposit? No problem!
If you’ve found the car of your dreams – or yours has just given up the ghost – you don’t need to dip into your savings or wait until you’ve built up a nice nest egg to buy a new used car.
We know it sounds too good to be true, but 0 deposit car loans for new and used cars do exist.
Some dealers might ask you for a reservation fee, but you could be able to find a car and drive it away without paying a deposit!
0 deposit car finance deals could be an option whether you're looking for a personal loan, hire purchase agreement or personal contract purchase deal.
With a personal loan, you won't normally need to pay a deposit. Once you've received the loan and paid the vehicle seller, the car will be all yours. All you need to worry about is keeping up with your monthly repayments!
PCP car deals with no deposit give you more options when your agreement ends. With a personal contract purchase, you'll typically pay fixed monthly repayments but when your loan period ends, you have choices. You can either return the car, buy it by paying a one-off balloon payment, or use any positive equity in the car as a deposit for a new PCP deal.
Terms and conditions will apply though. You might have a limit on the number of miles you can drive, and you'll need to make sure you don't damage the car to avoid extra charges.
A hire purchase (HP) agreement with no deposit will usually have higher monthly payments than PCP, but you will own the car when your loan period ends if you keep up with your repayments and pay the 'Option to Purchase' fee.
The best thing about no deposit car finance is that there's no deposit! You can drive your new car away without having to pay anything upfront. There's no need to wait and save up or use money you'd set aside for home improvements or your next summer holiday.
But it's worth keeping in mind that if you don't pay a deposit, you might have more money to pay back on your finance loan. This could make your monthly repayments higher or your loan period longer, meaning you'll pay back more in the end.
Restrictions can also apply. While we'll work to get the right deal for you, regardless of your personal circumstance, some no deposit car finance deals are only available to applicants with good credit ratings.
