Driving a new car is a feeling that everyone enjoys – the smell of a newly upholstered interior, the novelty of an unfamiliar vehicle and joy you get every time you approach it. As a mature woman, did you know that car leasing allows you to feel all this and more? In fact, a recent study has shown that 44% of women in the US prefer leasing over ownership because of several key benefits that it offers them.

Furthermore, the benefits extend way beyond the ‘feel good’ factor: when considering how lease contracts work, it can often work out cheaper and more convenient to lease – rather than purchase – a new car.

Benefit #1: A Brand New, Completely Reliable Car

In case you didn’t know, every lease contract entails getting a brand new car.

As a result, there’s likely to be no – barring the odd exception – risk of previous mechanical problems or unreliable parts. The peace of mind of this is unmatched: knowing your car came off the factory line and has just been through quality checks should reduce any risk or anxiety about your car giving up on you at the wrong time.

Hopefully, if you’ve thought ahead and taken out maintenance cover – you’ll have the added peace of mind that any problems are already covered by your lease contract. This way, you won’t have to pay extra for any callouts or fixes.

Benefit #2: Reduced Maintenance Costs

Every car lease contract should include the option for a maintenance plan, as well as insurance, depending on your lessor and their plans.

The most obvious benefit of this is having an encompassing maintenance plan built into your contract – with options for pick-up and delivery of your vehicle. By paying slightly more every month, you can drive your new vehicle knowing that any unforeseeable mishap is conveniently covered – with no extra payment on your behalf.

Combined with insurance and your manufacturer’s warranty – there is a chance that your car is covered against damages and repairs for the duration of your lease. This means that, at all times, you’ll never have to worry about taking care of any issues yourself.

Benefit #3: Affordable, Monthly Payments

Depending on your needs, lifestyle and credit score – you’re likely able to secure a range of suitable payments for yourself and your lease.

As mentioned above, if you decide to take out a fully-covered lease, your maintenance, insurance, and mileage should be covered by your monthly payment.

After paying your initial rental – which can be between 1 and 12 months – this means that for the remainder of your contract, all you have to do is pay your lease fee every month and never have to worry about any other associated costs.

If your mechanical knowledge isn’t that strong, or you have another issue, it’s no problem: one phone call will ensure that someone will be on the way to attend to your vehicle.

As always, make sure you know what your car leasing company covers so you know exactly what’s taken care of.

Benefit #4: Negotiate A Deal That Suits Your Lifestyle

With a little bit of planning and pre-negotiation, it is possible to secure a car lease contract that perfectly suits your needs.

Make sure to be perfectly clear with your leasing agent about what you need and your driving habits, and they should be able to find a vehicle for you at a great price that fulfills that.

As leasing agents deal with hundreds of requests a week for a range of customers, it’s expected that they become better acquainted with different brands and vehicle models – and know what benefits customers the most.

By developing a rapport with your leasing agent, it’s entirely possible they will go out of their way to find you the perfect vehicle in a great contract. This entails not being afraid to ask for cars that are currently overstocked or trying to be cleared – these will likely be going for much better prices.

Benefit #5: Never Sell The Car Yourself

Most car owners agree that one of the most stressful parts of getting a new car is selling your old one.

This is because you have to: make sure it’s fit for resale, find a buyer, negotiate a price you want and ensure your new car is on its way before you give up your old one!

When leasing, you simply return the vehicle when your contract is up – or even have it collected depending on your contract. You don’t have to sell it on, find a buyer or even worry about working out finances/depreciation – as this responsibility all falls on the lease company.

There are no doubts that both car ownership and car leasing have their various pros and cons.

However, if you find yourself financially stable, desiring convenience and looking to treat yourself with a new set of wheels – there is no doubt that car leasing has its place for the modern, mature woman.

It’s worth taking the time to consider leasing, and even calculating out the financial benefits of leasing a vehicle – which can often work out cheaper and more convenient than ownership.

In closing, always take your time to consider your needs, lifestyle and what will benefit you and your lease contract the most!
