The top 6 Nationwide Car Leasing Companies in the UK

1. Hippo Leasing

Fun fact: Hippo Leasing began life as a coal merchant but entered the motor trade in 1960. Today, they offer both personal and business lease deals, as well as leasing for bad credit and no deposit leasing.

Here are some key points:

  • Hippo Leasing take part exchanges but your car needs to be in good working condition
  • They deliver to anywhere in the UK, which includes Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man.
  • Delivery for a new car is free
  • Hippo Leasing lease used cars. However, there is a delivery charge involved. How much this is depends on where you live
  • Hippo Leasing charges a single admin fee that allows them to produce the relevant vehicle documentation. This admin fee is £39.99 and includes VAT
  • If your finance application is denied with Hippo Leasing, there’s nothing they can do

2. Nationwide Vehicle Contracts

Nationwide Vehicle Contracts has been around since 2002. They offer personal contract hire and business contract hire on cars and vans.

Here are some key points:

  • Nationwide Vehicle Contracts only to deliver to mainland UK. Buyers based in Northern Ireland can lease a car with them but will have to meet the delivery driver at Cairnryan port
  • Although disabled people can lease a new vehicle with the Motability scheme, Nationwide Vehicle Contracts is one leasing company that isn’t a Motability Specialist
  • If you’ve failed finance, the game is not up. A Nationwide Vehicle Contracts sales consultant will discuss your next options with you.
  • Nationwide Vehicle Contracts does not provide “no deposit” leasing agreements with new customers. If you’re a previous customer, however, there might be occasions when you don’t need to provide a deposit

3. All Car Leasing

All Car Leasing was established 20 years ago. They offer personal contract hire and business contract hire on a range of cars. All Car Leasing offer commercial vehicle leasing too.

Here are some key points:

  • All Car Leasing do take part exchanges occasionally, but they have a strict criterion. The car in question absolutely must be in decent condition
  • All Car Leasing are known for their special offers, but they’re not permanent and they’re limited in stock
  • All Car Leasing is a nationwide car leasing company that delivers to all parts of the UK, including Northern Ireland
  • All Car Leasing take the first payment after 1-3 weeks
  • Their stock offers are usually delivered within 31 days

4.Ling’s Cars – (perhaps the wackiest nationwide car leasing company in the world)

Ling Valentine – of Dragon’s Dens fame – is the brains behind Ling’s Cars, which is arguably the quirkiest car leasing company ever. Their online presence and branding is all about being different and entertaining, which some buyers will love and others might hate (though how could you hate it when she writes on her site, “Modern slavery is a crime and a gross violation of fundamental human rights. My staff are not slaves, they are willing participants who sometimes turn up (of their own free will) at my office and offer a small and insignificant amount of work, in return for generous financial rewards. No coercion, or chains or baseball bats are ever involved”?!)

Here are some key points:

  • Ling’s Cars offer personal contract hire and business contract hire on a range of cars
  • Prices change frequently. The advice is that if you see a good price, you need to act fast as it could soon go up
  • Ling’s Cars website might give you the impression that she isn’t taking this seriously – but she is, and the company currently has a 7.7 rating on TrustPilot

5. Select Car Leasing

Select Car Leasing was established in 2004 by Mark Tongue and James O’ Malley.

Here are some key points:

  • They offer personal and business contract hire
  • Select Car Leasing also offers contract purchase, lease purchase, and finance lease
  • The company offers leasing options for vans
  • Select Car Leasing offer good deals on pre-registered vehicles but these are not regarded as used – they are regarded as brand spanking new
  • Select Car Leasing offer what are comparatively low prices. They themselves say they “select the most competitive finance options … and arrive at the most competitive leasing rates in the country.”

6. Intelligent Car Leasing

Intelligent Car Leasing is a Glasgow-based nationwide car leasing company that offers business and personal contract hire agreements on cars and vans throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

  • Intelligent Car Leasing offer no deposit leasing
  • Intelligent Car Leasing has a “price match challenge.” If you find a better price elsewhere, they’ll make it their mission to match or even beat it
  • Intelligent Car Leasing are actively engaged in charity and community projects as they seek to give something back
  • Intelligent Car Leasing currently enjoys an 8.6 rating on TrustPilot at the time of writing
