The Citroen SimplyDrive scheme is designed to give you all your motoring needs in a single package, including a brand new car, motor insurance, road tax, servicing and more for three years. All can be had for one fixed monthly payment and is available on the majority of models able to be funded through Personal Contract Purchase (PCP).
As a result, getting a new Citroen on SimplyDrive allows you complete peace of mind when it comes to making the purchase; there are no worries thinking about the expense of servicing or renewing your road tax and insurance. At the end of the three years, you can enter into a new agreement on another new vehicle, pay the optional final payment and make the car yours or walk away completely.
1 Select the Citroen car of your choice
2 Choose your required annual mileage (6,000-30,000)
3 Tell us the deposit you’d like to put down (between 0-40% of the vehicle’s price)
4 We’ll calculate the three-year finance deal and talk you through it
5 Your monthly price will include a contribution towards your insurance policy (based on the age of the youngest driver, your residential postcode and model selected)
6 Come the end of the three years, you decide whether you’d like to start a new agreement, pay the optional final payment to own the car or walk away completely. (Any additional charges for damage or excess mileage are also taken at this point if applicable)
- 3 Years’ Finance
A structured finance package over 36 months (35 monthly payments & an optional final payment)
- 3 Years’ Comprehensive Motor Insurance
Through Citroen’s SimplyDrive, your insurance policy will be automatically renewed to ensure you get three years of continuous cover (subject to underwriting criteria). Your premium will also remain fixed for the contract’s duration (we reserve the right to increase your premium should you add a younger driver to the policy)
- 3 Years’ Routine Servicing
Ensures your chosen car runs in tip-top shape for the duration of the contract, with servicing carried out by Citroen specialists
- 3 Years’ Roadside Assistance
Because you never know…
- 3 Years’ Road Fund Licence (If applicable)
If your car requires RFL (road tax), we’ll make sure your first year’s cost is covered and then give you a cheque to cover the cost of years two and three (based on the current duty rates at the time of purchase).
- 3 Years’ Warranty
For that peace of mind.
- 3 Years’ Payment Waiver
In the unfortunate event of being made redundant involuntarily, Citroen Financial Services will waive up six monthly instalments and allow you time to enter into new employment. If after six monthly instalments you are still unemployed, you will be given the option to hand the vehicle back without further financial liability (subject to terms and conditions).
The motor insurance policyholder must be the primary user of the vehicle. Generally this will be the same person as named on the personal contract purchase agreement.
