    Yes, you can end your lease at anytime. You will need to ring motability to speak to them.

    The Motability Scheme

    Motability Scheme Customer Service
    phone number: 0300 456 4566**
    8am to 8pm Monday to Friday
    9am to 1pm Saturday
    If you paid an adavnce payment for your car you will receive some money back pro rota. They will tell you how much you'll receive back when you ring them.
    There may also be an admin charge of up to £250 for ending your lease early but if you haven't ended your lease before then there could be a discount for this.
    Usually when you keep your lease for 3 years if you return your car back to them in good condition you will receive a bonus of £600. Although you won't receive all of this money, they may still be a small good condition bonus, dependin on exactly how long there is left on your lease.
    When you agree to end your lease, you must return the car within 2 weeks.
    Just give them a ring and explain everything to them because they are always very helpful... at least they are when i've rang them in the past.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
