Protecting fleet managers against unexpected events with flexible leasing solutions

Advertisement feature from LeasePlan

Introducing flexibility to fleets is more important now than ever before, given what we’ve witnessed over the past 12 months. So many businesses and public sector organisations have been under considerable strain, with very little protection.


Flexible leasing options give fleet managers like you peace of mind against unexpected events. They empower you with the ability to make changes when necessary, without being penalised. A recent survey found that over four fifths (81%) of fleet managers think that having a flexible fleet vehicle leasing option would help their organisation to handle unpredictable changes.

Greater flexibility also allows you to make bolder decisions when it comes to delivering on your sustainability objectives and your journey to electrification. In the recent survey, over one fifth (21%) said that their inability to switch to electric was a key barrier, highlighting the constraints of their current ICE vehicle lease contracts.

So, no matter the challenge, flexibility needs to be part of the solution. That’s why LeasePlan UK offers a leasing proposition that enables customers with varying fleet sizes and vehicle types the opportunity to benefit from a more flexible approach to fleet management.

LeasePlan Flexible allows customers to hire vehicles for an indefinite period (between 3 months and 2 years) with the freedom to change vehicles, extend or off-hire whenever you need.

After a minimum period of just 84 days, you can change your plan as and when you need with no costly and inconvenient swaps. You can adapt your fleet as required – whether that’s to provide a short-term boost while you bring in contractors or new employees, or reduce it as the business requires.

We select our cars with benefit-in-kind (BIK), CO2, safety, driver appeal and company image in mind, so you can be confident that there’s a vehicle in our range to suit you, the driver and your fleet. And you choose the vehicle from our list before we deliver to ensure there are no unwanted surprises. In fact, we’ve delivered over 30 vehicles of the same make and model to one customer to ensure customer and driver satisfaction and fleet policy compliance.

LeasePlan Flexible is also designed to help you experience and transition your fleet and drivers to more environmentally friendly vehicles. Along with diesels and vans, our cars include a range of desirable EVs and plug-in hybrids from some of the most popular manufacturers including Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Skoda, Volvo and VW.
