Leasing only for business drivers? Not anymore. More and more private individuals are opting for private leasing. Whether that is financially attractive depends on various factors.
103,000 cars, with a private lease contract, drove around the Netherlands at the end of last year. According to the Association of Dutch Car Leasing Companies (VNA) that was only 64,000 the year before. The development of private leasing is largely responsible (for 60 percent) for the growth (9.3 percent) of all lease cars (860,000 cars) in the Netherlands in 2017.
More and more older people are leasing a car and leasing is also popular among young families. Older people opt for unburdening. By leasing a car, they drive a new car and there are known fixed charges every month. They do not have to worry about anything. Young families do not have to save for a larger family car, but can still use a private car in a new car.
What also plays a part in the popularity of private leasing is that second-hand cars have become increasingly expensive. Furthermore, a determining factor is that leasing companies can make attractive offers, also because of the low interest rates.
Whether private lease is attractive to you depends on your personal circumstances. Do you have to take out a personal loan for a new car? In that case, private leasing is an attractive option because of a possibly lower interest rate than those banks use. With private leasing, it is important – but not always easy – to list the costs properly.
