Short Term Car Leasing / Long Term Car Hire explained

Minilease from Norwich Car Hire is a form of short term car leasing or long term car hire, and is flexible, convenient and extremely cost effective. This is how it works:

Hiring, renting or leasing cars - it is a simple concept with many different nuances in relation to finance terminology. Our job is to simplify the process in order to make your motoring life easier and ultimately less risky when arranging a non-acquisition finance method of car use.

What is Short Term Car Leasing / Long Term Car Hire?

Short Term Car Leasing / Long Term Car Hire suits a customer who needs a car for a number of weeks or months as opposed to daily rental, such as an overseas driver visiting the UK for a longer period, or a new employee. From a customer's perspective, long term car hire works in the following way:

  • All vehicles are divided into groups. You simply choose the group that suits your needs
  • Select the term, and the monthly mileage is set at 2000 miles per 28 days.
  • By having simple vehicle groups Norwich Car Hire are able to buy vehicles more competitively and pass on the savings directly to you.
  • Specific vehicle types with fixed short term leases of 6 to 24 months.
  • We can arrange the supply of your chosen short term lease vehicle quickly and efficiently, often within 48 hours.
  • Insurance is not normally included. However, we do offer this service subject to an additional cost provided you meet our insurance criteria.

As your chosen car is new or nearly new, it has full breakdown cover, and maintenance is included (excluding tyres and windscreens) as well as road fund licence. You simply use the vehicle provided until the end of the agreed term, then either return it, extend it or swap it for another one.

Could not be easier!

Duration of Lease

Minimum 28 days. We find 3 months is the most popular short term period. Afterwards you can easily extend, hand back or choose another vehicle for a minimum of 28 day increments.

If you wish to terminate your 1, 3, or 6 month lease, after your chosen minimum period simply hand the vehicle back with absolutely no penalties - providing the car is not damaged and is within the agreed mileage limit.


We include 2000 miles per 28 days free of charge within the lease. Should you exceed this allowance, an excess mileage charge of 10p per mile plus vat (12p per mile) will be charged for each mile over the agreed distance.


At the start of your lease, you will need to leave a damage excess bond which is normally equivalent to 1 months lease. In the event of the car being returned with damage, you will be responsible for the cost of repairs, or the insurance policy excess if you are using Norwich Car Hire insurance.

To book we will require a credit or debit card to secure the chosen vehicle. If the hirer cancels the agreement then a £25.00 cancelation fee will apply unless we are given 7 days' notice of the cancellation.


All payment terms are in advance and paid 28 days from the start of the hire date. No need to do anything as we will automatically deduct the amount from your designated account and send the last months invoice with the payment receipt to your address.
