Hire Purchase (HP)

Hire Purchase is a finance product offered by Honda Financial Services which allows you to budget effectively because the interest rate and monthly payments are fixed at the start for the whole term of the agreement.

It's more manageable than you think

You could then choose to go back to your Honda retailer and part exchange your car for another new Honda.

Important information to consider

There are some aspects of Hire Purchase that you need to be aware to help you make an informed choice to decide if HP is right for you.

There are no mileage restrictions as part of the finance agreement. 

The Total Amount Payable (overall cost) is typically lower than Personal Contract Purchase on an agreement over the same term. 

You have the right to withdraw from your HP agreement within 14 days from the start of your agreement. You can also partially or fully settle your agreement at any time (subject to the terms of the agreement). 

Hire Purchase may not be the right finance product for you for the following reasons:

With Hire Purchase there is no deferred payment amount (the Guaranteed Future Value or GFV) so you may pay more a month compared to PCP.

Because there is no GFV, you have less protection against depreciation than with a PCP.

You will not own the car outright until all regular payments and any option to purchase fees are paid. 

To keep monthly payments down, you may need to take your loan over a longer term.

Hire Purchase may not be right for you so please review our other finance product, or speak to your Honda retailer, to make sure you choose the right product to suit your needs.

It is important that the product you choose should provide a monthly payment that is sustainable, whilst also meeting your needs and circumstances best. Your Honda retailer will be happy to assist you with this.
