Car Subscriptions Explained

Whilst a little more expensive than traditional car leasing, a car subscription provides you access to a vehicle for one monthly fee, they usually cover the essentials such as:

  • Vehicle Rental
  • Routine Services and Maintenance
  • 24hr breakdown assistance
  • Road Fund Licence
  • Manufacturers Warranty

Credit Checks

All of the companies carry out checks that comply with Anti-money laundering and FCA guidelines, be wary of those companies that do not offer this and even those that are not registered with the FCA.

People who know me, know I like to be upfront. So therefore, it is only fair to let you know that I own a car subscription company called Cocoon Vehicles. But I feel that competition is healthy.
