What is Operational Lease?
At Operational Lease, everything is aimed at relieving the customer as much of their worries as possible. The only thing it has to do with in this case is the monthly bill from the leasing company and the parking and fuel costs. All other matters associated with driving a car are the responsibility of the leasing company
Mainly leasing new cars
Operational Lease focuses mainly on new cars. The costs of maintenance and depreciation are the largest cost item and therefore largely determine the lease amount. These costs can be most accurately controlled for new cars that are maintained in accordance with factory instructions. That is why with Operational Lease it is most economical to only work with new cars.
Leasing an occasion?
If you prefer to lease a used car, it is better to opt for financial leasing . This is usually the cheapest lease form for used cars.
The amount that must be paid monthly with Operational Lease includes everything - except for fuel and parking costs. The leasing company takes care of the purchase of the car, insurance, road tax, maintenance & repairs as well as breakdown assistance and replacement transport. The depreciation of the car is also included.
The only additional costs are therefore the costs of fuel and parking. To make it even easier, a fuel card is often used so that collecting fuel receipts is no longer necessary. The customer then receives a monthly itemized collection bill for the fuel costs incurred that month.
The lease contract not only states which car it concerns and which version, but also how long the lease period is and the maximum number of kilometers that may be driven per year. In addition, there are also additional conditions regarding, for example, no-claim discount, deductible in the event of damage, breakdown assistance and replacement transport abroad, and various matters such as winter tires.
More kilometers than agreed?
If more kilometers are driven, the costs of maintenance and depreciation are higher. If this has to be paid afterwards, this often results in a hefty bill. If it gradually becomes clear that more kilometers are indeed being driven, it is more beneficial to have the lease contract adjusted as quickly as possible so that the monthly amount is increased in the meantime.
Terminate contract prematurely
Unless something has been agreed about this, it is not possible to terminate the lease contract prematurely without having to pay a lump sum. The amount of the purchase price is determined by the leasing company.
Anyone who chooses to lease a car via this lease form does not become the owner of the car. The car remains the legal and economic property of the leasing company. This means that you are not allowed to simply apply lettering or accessories. This can affect the residual value or maintenance costs of the car. You must therefore always request permission from the leasing company for this.
Take over the car
In most cases, it is possible to take over the car from the leasing company after the lease period. But in most cases, at the end of the lease period, the car and keys are simply returned and a new lease contract has already been concluded for another lease car.
No unexpected costs
The big advantage of Operational Lease is that - apart from fuel costs - you know exactly what you have to pay monthly. Even if the car regularly has to be taken to the garage for repairs, these will be borne by the garage.View our Operational Lease offer
