How we can support you

If you’ve reach the end of your payment holiday and can restart your payments.
• When your payment holiday ends you will restart your payments. Your monthly payment will be for the same amount as before your payment holiday.
• If you have been charged an extra amount for taking a payment holiday, you will not pay this until after your last payment. If the extra amount is more than your monthly payment, it will be split over a number of months. This means that you will not pay more than your normal monthly payment each month.
• The due date for your normal monthly payments will likely have changes as a result of taking a payment holiday. You will have received a letter from us telling you the new payment date. You can also check your payment due date by logging into your online account* and checking the ‘My Account’ screen.
• If you cancelled your Direct Debit, please reinstate it before your monthly payments are due to restart. You can do this by logging into your online account* and selecting ‘Update bank details’. You will then need to enter your sort code and account number. You will need to reinstate your Direct Debit at least 8 working days before your next payment is due.
• If it is too late to reset your Direct Debit for when your payments restart, you can make a payment by debit card using the ‘Make a payment’ option in your online account*.
• If you are unsure whether you cancelled your Direct Debit, you can check if it is still active with your bank. You should be able to find this information on your bank’s online banking or mobile banking app. If not, you will need to call your Bank.

*If you are a business, you may not be able to use our online service. If you are unable to use the online service, call us on 0344 8244712.


If you need extra support to make your payments.

Payment Holidays

A payment holiday means you can pause your usual payments for up to 3 months to help stop you falling behind. After that, you start paying the same amount each month as before your payment holiday.

If you have had a payment holiday for 3 months or more and you cannot restart your payments, you may be able to extend your payment holiday to up to 6 months.

Taking a payment holiday won’t directly affect your credit score, as it won’t show that you’ve missed payments during this time. But lenders take a wide range of information into account when making decisions on borrowing, and this includes details you may provide about how you’ve managed your account, such as taking a payment holiday.


Term Extension

If you’re not able to restart your full monthly payments, we may be able to increase the length of your agreement which will reduce the amount you have to pay each month. This is called a Term Extension.

• A Term Extension will cost you more in the long term as it will take you longer to pay back the amount borrowed.
• If you ask us for a Term Extension we’ll need to do a credit file check and you’ll need to sign an agreement to confirm you are happy with the changes.
• If you’ve already taken a payment holiday before taking a Term Extension, you won’t need to pay any extra amounts added for taking a payment holiday.
• Any payment holidays you’ve asked for but haven’t yet taken will be cancelled. To keep your payment holiday, wait until they have completed before requesting a Term Extension.


To apply for a Term Extension, you can log into your online account and select ‘Manage Payment Holiday’.


If your payment is due within 7 days, you should wait until after you have made your next monthly payment to apply for a Term Extension. If you can’t make your next payment, call us on 0344 8244712 to see how we can help.


If the change to your income is short term or you think things may change again soon, a long term option like a Term Extension may not be the best option for you right now. We have other options available like those below.
Call us so we can discuss your options.
• If you don’t want to keep your vehicle, you can end your agreement early and hand it back to us. This is called Voluntary Termination and you may still have an amount to pay if you do this.
• If you want to keep your vehicle, there are options such as giving you a period of breathing space to sort out your finances or a reduced payment plan. These options will impact your credit file, so make sure you talk to us about what this means for you.

If you’ve reached the end of your payment holiday and can’t restart your payments


If your income is still impacted by coronavirus and you cannot restart your payments we have other options available to help. You can call us on 0344 8244712 so we can talk it through.

To ensure we can give you the best support when you call us, please get all details of your income and expenditure ready before you call. This may include wage slips, bills and bank statements.

  • Is this your first payment holiday? Do you need a payment holiday for 3 months?
    If you log into your online account*, you can follow the instructions on the home page to request a 3 month payment holiday. If you’re not able to login online then call us 0344 8244732.


    If you have had a payment holiday for 3 months or more and you cannot restart your payments, you may be able to extend your payment holiday to up to 6 months.
    Your payment holiday can be extended by one month at a time. This will include the Payment Holidays that you have taken so far.

    If you log into your account*, you can click on 'Manage my payment holiday' and follow the instructions to make your request. Please make your request at least 5 working days before your next payment is due, or your payment holiday may not be processed. You can extend your Payment Holiday up to a maximum of 6 months in total by logging into your online account or calling us.


    If you do not ask us to extend your Payment Holiday again, we will assume that you can start making your payments.

    If you are a business, you may not be able to use our online service. If you are unable to use the online service, call us on 0344 8244732

    Before extending your payment holiday, you should think about whether you can start your payments again. When you take a payment holiday, you pay more overall as you take longer to pay back the amount borrowed. The longer your payment holiday, the more you pay. You may also incur extra vehicle related costs if you keep the vehicle for longer.

    If you have had a payment holiday for 6 months and you cannot restart your payments, contact us on 0344 8244732 to discuss your options.


    Are your money worries longer term?
    A payment holiday can help if you need to take a short break from making your payment. This may be due to a short term loss of or reduction in your income or your household income. If your money worries are longer term, please call us on 0344 8244732 so we can discuss if a payment holiday is right for you

    To ensure we can give you the best support when you call us, please get all details of your income and expenditure ready before you call. This may include wage slips, bills and bank statements.

    If your payment is due within 5 days, you will not be able to have a payment holiday for this payment:

    If you can make the payment, you can come back and request a payment holiday for your next payment.
    If you cannot make the payment, you can stop it by speaking to your bank and asking them not to pay the Direct Debit. You will then need to call Land Rover Financial Services on 0344 8244732 so that we can discuss your options with you.

    If you are more than two payments behind, you may not be able to have a payment holiday. Please call Land Rover Financial Services on 0344 8244732 so that we can discuss other ways that we can help.
  • • A payment holiday can help if you need to take a short break from making your payments. This may be due to a short term loss of or reduction in your income or your household income. If you are concerned the impact may be longer term, a payment holiday may not be right for you. Please call us on 0344 8244732 so that we can discuss other options to help you.
    • If you defer your payments by 3 months, you will not make any payments for 3 months. If you defer your payments by 6 months, you will not make any payments for 6 months.
    • You will pay more overall as you take longer to pay back the amount borrowed. We will work out how much extra you will need to pay and we will add this to your agreement.
    • We will work out how much is due by using the interest rate shown in your agreement. The extra amount will not be more than £100 for each month that we defer your payments. This means if you defer your payments by 3 months, the extra amount will not be more than £300. If you defer your payments by 6 months, the extra amount will not be more than £600.
    • You will be asked to pay the extra amount the month after your final payment is due by making additional monthly payments. If the amount is more than your monthly payment, it will be split over a number of months. This means that you will not pay more than your normal monthly payment each month.
    • You do not need to ask your bank to make any changes to your direct debit. We will take care of this for you.
    • You can take an initial payment holiday of up to 3 months. If your payment holiday has come to an end and you cannot restart your payments, you can extend your Payment Holiday to up to 6 months. You will need to extend your Payment Holiday one month at a time. This means that you only take a break from your payments for as long as you need. 
    • A Payment Holiday will not show as missed payments on your credit file but lenders may take it into account when making future lending decisions. You should keep in mind that lenders may use other sources of information when they make a decision to lend to you in the future.
  • We will defer your payments one month at a time. Each month you will receive a letter confirming your next payment date has been moved by one month. This letter will tell you how much you will pay each time we defer your payments. You will need to add up the amount shown in each of the letters to work out the extra amount that you will pay overall.
  • You will pay more overall as you will take longer to pay back the amount borrowed.

    You may also have to pay other costs if you take a payment holiday.

    • If you keep your vehicle for longer, you will need to pay for your insurance and road tax for longer.
    • If you have a warranty or breakdown cover, it may not cover you for the extended time that you will have the vehicle.
    • You may also need to pay for an additional MOT or service on the vehicle.
    • The value of the vehicle will reduce over time. As you take longer to pay back the finance, the vehicle may be worth less than the outstanding balance.
    • If you have a PCP finance agreement, your maximum permitted mileage will stay the same. If you hand your vehicle back and you have exceeded the permitted mileage, you will be charged for excess miles.
  • If you have missed up to 2 payments, you can still ask for a 3 month or more payment holiday.

    If your missed payments relate to payments that were due in or after March 2020, you may be able to include these in your payment holiday. Please call us on 0344 8244732 so that we can arrange this for you.
    If your missed payments relate to payments that were due before March 2020 and you have not yet spoken to us about the missed payments, call us on 0344 8244732 so that we can discuss your options.

    A payment holiday can help you if you need to take a short break from making your payment. This may be due to short term loss or reduction in your income or your household income.

CONTRACT HIRE CUSTOMERS - CONTRACT HIRE CUSTOMERS

  • If your income has been affected by coronavirus, we have a range of options to help you. This may include the option to defer rentals for up to 3 months.

    A payment deferral can help if you need to take a short break from making your payments. This may be due to a short term loss of or reduction in your income or your household income. However if you are concerned the impact may be for longer term, a payment holiday may not be right for you. Please contact us by email lbscustomerservices@lexautolease.co.uk so that we can discuss other options to help you.

    If you would like to defer your rentals and you are a personal contract hire customer please visit our secure online portal www.managemyvehicle.co.uk. You can apply to defer your payments online and we will then let you know whether your request has been accepted.

    If you are a fleet or BCH customer please contact our Customer Services team by email lbscustomerservices@lexautolease.co.uk who will respond to your request. Due to the high volume of emails we are currently experiencing, our response times are longer than normal.
  • The Transport Secretary has confirmed a 6 month exemption from MOT testing for all cars, vans and motorcycles that have an MOT due from 30 March 2020. Please contact your local Jaguar Retailer directly to arrange. Vehicles must be kept in a roadworthy condition and most Retailers will remain open for essential repair work. Drivers can be prosecuted for driving unsafe vehicles.

    Department for Transport: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/vehicle-owners-to-be-granted-mot-exemption-in-battle-against-coronavirus
  • We are aware that a number of Retailers have closed but a number of these will remain open for the sole purpose of servicing and maintaining Key Services & Workers vehicles.

    If you are a NOT a key worker we recognise that the facilities to service vehicles aren’t currently available. We understand that this may mean you are unable to adhere to Jaguar’s servicing guidelines and recommend that you have the work completed as soon as possible after lockdown.

    In the meantime ensure basic maintenance is followed. Please refer to the advice from the AA on how to maintain your vehicle when not driving regularly:

    https://www.theaa.com/driving-advice/laying-up#guidelines

    For further guidance please use the Jaguar website to obtain specific vehicle information in light of the current situation.

    If you have a non-maintained contract we understand that this may mean you are unable to adhere to Jaguar’s servicing guidelines and recommend that you contact your Retailer and have the work completed as soon as possible after lockdown. In the interim, please refer to the AA website above.
  • A number of Retailers have closed their sales operation but continue to work remotely via telephone, email and online. Due to reduced colleague numbers in certain departments you may experience a delay in the service normally provided.

    A number of servicing sites remain open to support Key Services & Workers.
  • All new vehicle deliveries will be postponed until further notice. We will endeavour to deliver vehicles for critical services and workers however unfortunately we cannot guarantee this.
  • Unfortunately due to the coronavirus restrictions, our vehicle collection services are temporarily unavailable.

     

    Option 1. Keep using the vehicle

     

    If you would like to keep the vehicle for an extended period beyond your end of contract date, we will continue your contract for you and confirm monthly rental details in the post. If you choose to keep vehicle then there is no need to contact us at this time as your informal extension will continue.

     

    Option 2. You still wish to return your vehicle

     

    Please follow the steps below if you still wish to return your vehicle

     


    • Copy and paste the template below into a new email
    • Complete the required details
    • Email the completed template to lbscustomerservices@lexautolease.co.uk with the subject heading ‘Vehicle Return Request’

    Registration Number:

     

    Proposed Contract End Date*:

     

    Vehicle mileage as at above date:

     

    *The Proposed Contract End Date should be no later than the date your contract was due to end.

    I confirm I will stop using the vehicle after the Proposed Contract End Date.

    I will keep/park the vehicle in a safe and secure location to minimise the risk of third party damage.

     

     

    You must stop using the vehicle after the Proposed Contract End Date. The vehicle may be parked on the public highway.

     

    As you will no longer be driving the vehicle, you can cancel your motor insurance policy.

     

    You may still receive invoices between the Proposed Contract End Date and the collection date but your rental will not be charged and direct debit payment will not be taken.

     

    Please note, you will still be liable for any excess mileage charges if you have exceeded your contracted mileage limit.

     

    We will contact you as soon as service resumes to arrange collection of your vehicle.

  • Please note if you would like to end your contract early before the original end date, you may be required to pay an early termination charge. Please email lbscustomerservices@lexautolease.co.uk who will be able to provide details.
  • Within the initial warranty period any breakdowns are referred to the Jaguar preferred breakdown provider.

    If you have a maintained contract and the vehicle is outside the warranty period our preferred supplier for breakdowns are the AA who operate across the UK with a network of over 2000 patrols providing roadside support.

    The AA have contingency plans to vary working patterns to mitigate the impact of staff absence where possible and provide continuity of service for our customers. We will continue to monitor the situation and will redirect any breakdown requests within the warranty period from other providers to AA should these alternative providers be unable to provide service.
  • Please refer to the advice from the AA on how to maintain your vehicle when not driving regularly.
