Pivotal is Jaguar Land Rover’s own subscription service and runs very similarly to Care by Volvo. You can swap cars every 3 months and if you won’t need a car temporarily, you can pause your subscription.
Getting a car from Pivotal could be a great way to experience the high-end vehicles Jaguar and Land Rover have to offer, without having to worry about maintenance, road tax or insurance.
Pivotal has a tiered subscription, meaning you pick the pricing tier rather than the specific car. These are:
Unlike with other subscription services where the process is handled quickly by yourself online, with Pivotal you’ll have to submit your personal details and wait for their sales team to reach out to you.
You’ll have to provide your basic details and tier of choice. Then they will carry out checks to see if you are eligible for their car insurance, verify your identity, check your affordability (via Open Banking) and look at your past driving history (via DVLA).
You will have a mileage limit of 1,500 miles per month. More information about the fees follow below.
Pivotal’s eligibility process usually takes 3-5 working days. Here are the requirements:
We also have an in-depth guide which explains the driver requirements and eligibility in a lot more detail.
Pivotal is definitely on the more costly side and one obvious reason is that their cars are on the higher end. However, unlike other subscription companies there is a one-time joining fee of £550 (incl. VAT).
Here are the other usual costs involved with getting a car from Jaguar Land Rover:
There is a cooling-off period of 14 days after the delivery of your first car once you sign up.
After this, if you want to pause or cancel your Pivotal membership you will need to provide a 14-day notice.
Here's an example of what your Pivotal subscription could look like:
Generally speaking, Jaguars and Land Rovers aren’t some of the most owned cars on UK roads. Early research conducted by Pivotal showed that 80% of the UK motorists haven’t driven a car from these two brands. So, getting one on subscription may be a good way to experience them.
The big benefit with Pivotal is that you can pause your subscription membership of your personal circumstances change. Then you pick it up again when you need a car. And once you are on their system, you won’t have to pay that hefty joining fee! It’s definitely not one of the cheapest options out there.
