Further Help

What does the Motability package include?

When you lease a car through the Motability Scheme the following is always included in the price:

  • Car insurance, servicing and maintenance
  • Full breakdown cover
  • Replacement tyres
  • Windscreen repair or replacement
  • 60,000-mile allowance across the 3 year period
  • Certain adaptations at no extra cost
  • Up to two named drivers

What is an advance payment?

Some larger or higher specification Volvo models require an additional upfront payment. This is known as an 'Advance Payment'. The Advance Payment covers the difference between the cost of your car and your allowance paid over the length of the agreement when your allowance alone would not be enough to cover the cost. It is not a deposit and is therefore not refundable.

How often do prices change?

Our price lists are updated every three months so that we can offer our customer the best deals from Volvo. We also offer a 'Price Guarantee' meaning the price confirmed at the time of your application the price you pay even if the price changes before you collect your car.

The dates the new prices are published are:

  • 1st January
  • 1st April
  • 1st July
  • 1st October

Do I own the car at the end of the lease?

At the end of the lease agreement, you will not own the car and it will be returned.

You now have three options:

  • Lease another car through the Motability Scheme
  • You may be able keep your current car if you wish to extend the lease
  • Return your car and have your allowance reinstated
