Motability

Some cars are available for no more than the cost of your allowance, however, to widen your choice of cars, you can pay what is called an Advance Payment. Advance payments are non-refundable and made to your dealer at the start of your lease. An Advance Payment is simply the difference between your higher rate mobility allowance and the overall cost of your chosen car over its 3 year lease. Motability helps disabled motorists enjoy the freedom of driving but reduces the worry about a large portion of the running costs.
