For many, the concept of a car subscription service is fairly new. While it’s been described as the future of the auto industry and more and more people are jumping on board to reap the benefits, some still aren’t too sure what it’s all really about. As with any subscription service, it’s crucial that you’re completely clued up on what you’re getting into before you commit – and that means doing your research beforehand.
To make your life that little bit easier and help you work out whether a car subscription is right for you, we’ve answered some of the most important questions below.
Wait, what is a car subscription?
A car subscription is what it says on the tin: you can literally subscribe to a car on a flexible monthly contract. Just like your magazine subscription that lands in your postbox every month, drivers can subscribe to any car of their choice for a fixed monthly price. This price includes everything – the car, insurance, warranty, maintenance and 24 hour roadside assistance.
Can subscribing to a car save me money?
When compared to traditional car ownership, car rental services can save you money in lots of different ways. Firstly, let’s take a quick look at the individual costs of owning a car; in addition to the hefty upfront cost, you also need to consider the price of insurance, tax, servicing and repairs at the very minimum too.
A car subscription service is significantly cheaper and consists of just one fixed monthly price which covers everything you need. There are no hefty down payments required upfront and you can benefit from all-inclusive packages. All you have to do is cover the monthly cost and pay for fuel to drive!
How do I subscribe to a car?
Subscribing to a car is as simple as subscribing to your favourite music app or magazine. You simply go onto the car subscription app, search through the cars available, choose one that suits your needs, pick your subscription and select a delivery time. Of course, you’ll need your driver’s license and details to hand – but other than that, subscribing to a car has never been easier.
At Carasti, we’ve worked hard to develop an app that is quick, simple and easy to use. With a huge range of cars available on our app, we have two different subscription options to choose from to meet your needs: a flexible month to month subscription and our Mini Lease subscription giving you access to Brand New Cars on 12 and 24 month plans.
What cars can I choose from on a car rental app?
The beauty of a car subscription is that you can choose any car you want and opt for cars you’d never usually buy. If you’ve always dreamed of driving an Audi or you want to give a Range Rover a go, you have the freedom to select any car that’s available. They do of course vary in price, but you have access to any car you want on the app.
When your car arrives, it’s only ever lightly used (you probably won’t even notice!) and sparkling clean. You don’t have to stress about whether you love the car or not, because you can return it whenever you want.
Can car rental companies really deliver my car straight to my front door?
The idea of subscribing to a car online and having it delivered straight to your front door seems kind of novel, right? The reality is, the future is now – it’s the 21st century and everything is designed to be convenient, streamlined and sophisticated. So yes, you really can open your front door one morning to a brand new car that you subscribed to just the night before. This means you don’t have to meet anywhere or make your way to any car dealership; instead, your car will be brought right to you for you to start driving.
What if there are any problems with my car?
If you experience any problems with your car, no need to worry. As insurance, maintenance, servicing and 24 hour roadside assistance is included in your fixed monthly price, the company will take care of everything for you and ensure that your car is back safely on the roads as soon as possible at no extra cost.
So… I don’t have to shop around for insurance?
Shopping around for insurance is one of those annoying, time-consuming chores that we all have to do when buying a new car. How do we know if we’re getting the best deal? What if we’re making the wrong decision?
Fortunately, you don’t have to worry about insurance when you use a car subscription app. The company takes care of all of it for you; say goodbye to insurance comparison websites and hours spent tallying up different costs, and say hello to a new car in your driveway. Plain and simple.
