What is PCP Finance?

PCP (Personal Contract Plan) finance is a special type of finance plan whereby the buyer puts down a deposit and then agrees on a repayment plan that suits his or her needs over the next three years. Because of this, the finance provider can then remove part of the value of the vehicle (commonly called the ‘guaranteed minimum value’) in order to lower the amount that has to be financed by the buyer. This typically leads to lower monthly repayments therefore making it a much more affordable product for a majority of buyers out in the marketplace. The dealership, in turn, guarantees the Future Minimum Value of your vehicle when you return to change it.

Ford Options is a brand new Personal Contract Plan (PCP) Finance product that gives you huge flexibility and a lower monthly amount over the repayment period. Choose your deposit between 10 % – 30%, agree a monthly repayment that suits you and drive away with the added peace of mind of knowing your vehicle’s Guaranteed Future Value. At the end of your agreement, you can then choose to either Return, Retain or Renew your car! Available on Fiesta,Focus and B-Max.

At the end of the contract, you get to choose from the following 3 options:

Option 1 – Renew your Ford
With Ford Options, you can enjoy all of the benefits of a new car, more often. If you would like to renew your Ford you can trade it in at your Ford Dealer or sell it privately once you have settled your account. Any excess value over the GMFV (Guaranteed Min Future Value) can be used as a deposit towards your new Ford.

Option 2 – Retain your Ford
Ford Options also gives you the flexibility to own the car at the end of the agreement. All you need to do is arrange payment of the GMFV, which was deducted at the start of your agreement, plus the purchase fee.

Option 3 – Return your Ford
Your pre-agreed GMFV gives you protection against any unexpected fall in used car prices. If you would like to return your car, your Ford Dealer will complete a vehicle appraisal. As long as your car meets our fair wear and tear standards, is within the agreed mileage, and your account is up-to-date, there will be nothing further to pay. Additional charges will be made if you exceed the agreed mileage or if your car does not meet our fair wear and tear standards.
