It's not always easy to find out which one is the best for you. What's the real difference between leasing, subscribing and buying a car?
Care by Volvo is a new, flexible mobility offer where you subscribe to a car. When you ask the current users of Care by Volvo about the pros and cons of subscribing to a car, they highlight the great all-inclusive concept and the possibility to change car at any time with just three months’ notice and without any extra charges.
For me, the car subscription is the best alternative to long-term rental. I don't have to worry about anything anymore, saving a lot of effort and time. Also, I like the flexibility and the vehicle is really good!Juliane L. age 41, subscriber of a Volvo XC40
When you compare a Care by Volvo subscription with leasing a car you quickly realise that you often get a better price with the subscription because of the all-inclusive package.
Unlike leasing, a Care by Volvo car subscription does not have a fixed term, it’s open-ended. We argue that life can be unpredictable and knowing what´s going to happen is impossible, therefore we offer the flexible car subscription that changes with you. With only three months’ notice you can change your car or stop your subscription. In addition, all the costs of vehicle operation are already included in the transparent, fixed monthly fee - you just need to refuel.
Leasing contracts usually have binding periods of several years, meaning a long-term commitment. If you are looking for a more flexible option, a Care by Volvo subscription has a minimum binding period of only one month. You pay a flat monthly fee and you can easily cancel whenever you want with three months’ notice. When you subscribe, you can also switch to a different model or a newer version. There’s no cancellation fee and you can return the car at any time.
When you lease or buy a car the most common practice is that only the person registered on the car can drive the car. In contrast, a Care by Volvo subscription car can be driven by anyone you want to share it with. The Volvo insurance automatically covers additional drivers without pre-registration or extra fees. The subscription covers the car, not the person driving.
