Is car subscription worth it when living in Edinburgh?

There are several reasons why subscribing to an electric car could be right for you!

Explore Scotland at your own pace

It can be a convenient and flexible alternative to buying or leasing a car, especially if you live in you to explore Scotland in the summer but don't want to own a car in the winter.

In this case, committing to a three-year-long lease probably doesn't make a lot of sense. However, if you want a car to get out of the city without having to worry about insurance, tax and servicing, then a subscription could be the right fit for you.

You can return the car after a few months when you're ready.

Temporary work commitments

Another scenario where subscribing to a car for a month or longer could make sense is if your job requires travelling to places that aren't easy to get to by public transport.

Perhaps you need a car for a short-term project or a temporary relocation that requires frequent travel to remote areas from your home in Edinburgh.

The whole process from start to finish is so streamlined that the biggest worry is just finding the right car for the job!

Common questions from our Edinburgh users

How quickly after I sign up can I be driving my car?

Once you've picked a subscription provider, it only takes a few minutes to sign up and create an account. Some providers would deliver your car within 7 days, while other may allow you to go and pick it up in person. Some subscription providers may charge an additional fee for deliveries in Scotland, so keep that in mind.

Will subscription providers check my credit report?

Providers may carry out a 'soft' credit search to confirm your identity and look at whether you can afford the monthly payments. Car subscriptions don't appear on your credit report, unlike car finance.

Which car brands offer subscriptions?

Well-known car manufacturers now offer subscriptions directly, these include Volvo, Hyundai, Genesis and Jaguar Land Rover. There also independent providers such as elmo, Onto, Wagonex, My Car Direct and others which can deliver to Edinburgh.
