What’s Special about Flexed?
Flexed allow both individual and commercial leases (with the industry standard restrictions on the latter) and the option to go on to a 28-day rolling contract with unlimited car swaps offers a level of flexibility that isn’t matched by many of their competitors. The monthly mileages are generous and the penalty for exceeding those terms is not too punitive. In addition, the lack of deposit and availability to drivers under 30, coupled with UK-wide delivery and low-cost entry-level vehicles, means that Flexed has a mass appeal across the UK that sets it apart from many of its competitors. All cars on their fleet are less than 12 months old – 90% of which are under 6 months old.

Can I lease a car for a month with Flexed?
Flexed’s minimum subscription period is 28 days. After this time, you can return, swap or extend, working on a month-to-month basis.
Can I cancel my subscription early?
If you cancel during the first month, you will not get a refund for that period. However, if you cancel during subsequent months, you will be refunded for the days in that 28-day period when you didn’t have the car.
Does Flexed offer delivery?
Flexed can arrange delivery of your vehicle through a third party. However, this is a separate service not covered by the subscription. As such, there will be an extra charge.
Can I buy my Flexed Car?
While there are some subscription companies that allow you to buy your vehicle at the end of the term, these are typically companies tied to specific dealerships.
Do I need to MOT my lease car before returning?
No. Maintenance and servicing is included within a subscription contract, so you don’t need to worry about MOTs or road tax.
Flexed has an impressive range of vehicles, including hybrid and electric models. Their offering includes impressive nationwide coverage, flexible terms, and a willingness to engage on a commercial level. At the moment, their social media presence is limited, and the absence of an option to control the subscription through a proprietary smartphone app may put off some. However, the range of vehicles and prices means that there is mass appeal in the service that Flexed provides.
