Borrowing £12,000 over 48 months, on a car with a cash price of £12,250 and paying £250 deposit to the dealer. At a Representative APR of 7.9% and an annual interest rate of 7.63% (fixed) you would pay £220.53 monthly with one optional balloon payment of £4154.87 which includes the £1 option to purchase fee. The total amount payable (including your deposit) would be £14,519.78.
The above example is based on a popular hatchback car with a 1.25 engine size. It assumes a contract mileage of 40,000 miles and an excess mileage charge of 9p per mile.
How does PCP work?
Buying a car with Admiral Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) is easier than you think
Good to know
Remember, with PCP loans, you do not own the vehicle until all contractual repayments have been made. Failure to maintain payments could result in the vehicle being repossessed.
Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) is split into three steps
Got a much better rate than the dealership could offer plus it was paid directly to the dealer which made the purchase seamless
Extremely helpful and positive staff that were surprisingly engaging to help me every step of the way. Rare to see customer service this good!
No drama, very easy process and money transferred same day
Very quick and easy
Have an online facility
The service was quick, easy and lower interest than the other insurances I was comparing!
The policy is worded in legalese, I could still understand it though. Some parts I had to go over just to check I understood.
Simple quick and easy to get a quote and to set up the finance
Interest rate was competitive but could still be better
Your questions answered
What is a balloon payment?
A Balloon Payment is the optional final payment at the end of a Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) agreement which must be paid if you would like to own car. Alternatively you can return the car, If it has exceeded the contracted mileage and/or is not in good condition you will incur extra charges.
What is Guaranteed Future Value (GFV)?
The Guaranteed Future Value (GFV) is an estimate of what your car will be worth at the end of your finance term, regardless of its true depreciation. The Guaranteed Future Value (GFV) is based on the predicted residual value (value at the end of the PCP agreement) of the car, and takes into account your estimated mileage, condition of car, length of your agreement and the make/model.
What happens if I exceed my mileage limit?
If you exceed your agreed mileage limit, you will be charged an excess mileage fee. The excess mileage fee will vary depending on the vehicle. Please refer to your contract pack for more information.
Who is the registered keeper of the car with PCP?
During the term of the agreement, you would be the 'registered keeper' of the car and be responsible for insuring and maintaining it, but Admiral would remain the legal owner until the agreement has been repaid in full.
