Motability Advance Payment: Our Top Three Picks Under £750
Get inspiration for your next Motability vehicle with these three fantastic models - all of which you can use your £750 New Vehicle Payment to cover!
- The New Vehicle Payment can now be used towards the Advance Payment (AP) to secure your next vehicle.
- If the AP is more than £750 you will need to pay the difference, though if it is less this will be returned to you after you receive your vehicle.
- Our top three picks with an Advance Payment under £750 include the MINI Hatchback, Kia Sportage, and Volkswagen T-Roc. Read on to find out why!
Motability widened horizons recently for Scheme customers. The leading organisation for disabled motoring announced that as well as the New Vehicle Payment being increased to £750, this can now be used towards the Advance Payment.
This means that customers can now send their NVP directly to the dealership instead of receiving the payment after collecting their new vehicle.
If the Advance Payment is more than £750, customers will need to pay the difference, though if it is less, they will be given the difference after getting their new vehicle.
With this in mind, we have rounded up our top three picks with an Advance Payment under £750 to help you get started.
