The five different types of car usership and ownership

Drive Fuze

Drive Fuze offers hassle-free car subscriptions, providing flexibility and convenience without long-term commitment. Experience the freedom to switch between vehicles as your needs change, all under a straightforward monthly payment plan.


Leasing allows you to use a car for an agreed period, typically 2-3 years, with fixed monthly payments. At the end of the lease, you return the vehicle without ownership responsibilities, making it a popular choice for those who prefer regular upgrades.


PCP involves low monthly payments for a set period, usually 2-4 years. At the end of the term, you have the option to buy the car by paying a predetermined sum (balloon payment) or return it, offering flexibility and ownership choice.


PCH is similar to leasing, offering fixed monthly payments for a specific duration. However, with PCH, you don't have the option to buy the car at the end. Instead, you return the vehicle, allowing for easy transitions to newer models.

Buying outright

Buying outright involves purchasing the car with a one-time payment, making you the sole owner immediately. While this grants full ownership rights, it requires a substantial upfront investment and may lack the flexibility offered by other ownership options.

What is a car subscription?

A car subscription service takes the subscription model you’re familiar with Netflix or Spotify, and applies it to car ownership. You pay a monthly fee, and in return, you get the use of a new car and pretty much all of its associated running costs. Unlike a lease or  personal contract purchase (PCP), you’re not paying off the cost of the car and taking responsibility

Instead, you’re paying a monthly fee to use the car, and all the other costs (such as insurance, road tax and maintenance) are taken care of within that fixed monthly fee.

With a car subscription, although you don’t end up with the option of owning the car, you have the freedom to get on with life without worry and change cars when you want, for a lower upfront payment – often for less than £500 per month.
