Rent to Own

A new, easier way to become a car owner

Want a new car but can’t get financing? Our new RENT-TO-OWN offering lets you rent a vehicle for 54/60 months – at a fixed monthly instalment – before becoming the legal owner of the vehicle. We have a selection of vehicles available to suit every budget, and each RENT-TO-OWN monthly instalment includes licensing, insurance, and services. This fixed cost helps you pick the best solution that matches your budget.

Our RENT-TO-OWN option only looks at your affordability and not your credit history. This means that anyone who has always wanted to buy their own car, but hasn’t been able to secure financing, can now be a car owner!
