Personal Contract Purchase is a car finance agreement where you choose your car, the finance company pay the dealership and you repay the finance company in monthly instalments. The term usually lasts 2-3 years and at the end of the agreement you will have be able to either:
1) Buy the car by paying the balloon payment (also known as the Guaranteed Minimum Future Value)
2) Hand the car back – the finance company already set the GMFV, so handing the car back means you settle the deal.
3) Part exchange the car or sell it privately, using the money to settle the GMFV with the finance company and keeping any profit.
Due to the structure of this type of finance agreement, it’s perfect for anyone who likes to change their car regularly, without worrying about reselling the car, when you fancy a change.
