Fines and Charges
What happens if you receive any fines or a charge while using a lease car? It's unlikely, but of course, accidents can always happen!
Although it’s unlikely that you will receive a fine or charge while using your car, accidents can happen. So, what happens if you receive a fine or charge while using a lease car?
You are responsible for the payment of any fines or charges relating to your vehicle. The best way to think about it is, what would you have to pay if the car was your own? You would pay the same while using a lease car. For example, if you accidentally receive a parking fine, it would be your responsibility to pay for if it.
Examples of fines and charges that you would be responsible for are parking fines, fixed penalty notices, traffic camera offences, congestion charges, etc.
