Trying to decide what gift to give yourself this festive season? Consider getting a car that is in good condition on a rent-to-buy finance plan! Here are a few reasons why it is the ultimate choice for you and your family. 

What is Rent-to-Buy? 

Rent-to-buy, also referred to as rent-to-own, is the easiest way to own a second-hand vehicle. With this finance option, you will be paying a car rental fee over a pre-determined amount of time, until you own the car. This can vary between two to four years, depending on the monthly repayments. The monthly amount does not change and you won’t be paying off interest either. If you have not been able to obtain vehicle finance because you are blacklisted or have a low credit score, we are able to assist you too. 

Is Rent-to-Buy Right for Me? 

In order to rent-to-buy or rent-to-own a car, you will need the following:

    • Proof of income,
    • Valid driver’s license 
    • A minimum upfront payment of approximately R16,500
    • Be able to make a minimum monthly payment of R5,000 or more. This amount does include tracker, roadside assistance and a number of essential value adds. 

If you meet the minimum requirements, you could own the car in as little as 54 months after signing your rent to buy agreement and paying the monthly instalments, every month, with Earn-a-Car.
