What is Car Subscription?2020-06-30T01:59:58+00:00

Turners Subscription is a vehicle subscription service where you pay a fixed monthly subscription fee depending on the package you choose for the right to drive the vehicle of your choice. As a subscriber, you are also entitled to switch vehicles once every 30 days depending on your needs. Your subscription fee will cover comprehensive insurance, maintenance and service, RUC (if applicable), WOF and roadside assistance – all you need to pay is petrol

Why would I subscribe rather than buy a car?2020-06-30T01:59:25+00:00

There are many advantages of car subscription compared to buying a car. To buy a car, you need to save the full amount before you can use the car, which may take months or years. A Turners Subscription is charged every 15 days so you can get into a car more quickly. Buying a car also takes a lot of time researching, inspecting and negotiating. A car subscription can be set up easily online, saving you precious time. Buying a car is a long term purchase, you can’t buy and sell easily as your needs change, but with a Turners Subscription you can change your car every month. When you buy a car you have to pay for insurance, registration and servicing individually, a big hassle and difficult to afford if they all occur at the same time. All of these costs are included in one simple monthly subscription, helping you budget and letting you focus on living your life.

How does car subscription compare to saving up and purchasing a car?2020-06-30T01:56:10+00:00

It takes ages to save money! And while you are saving you don’t have any wheels. With a Turners Subscription you can get into a car much quicker and the major items like insurance, registration and maintenance are wrapped up in one simple monthly payment.

How does car subscription compare to a car loan?2020-06-30T01:57:00+00:00

To get a car loan, you usually need to save up a deposit, provide lots of documents and fill in loads of forms and then pay interest on the money you borrow. And then there is still a chance that you may not qualify for a loan as credit restrictions are getting tighter. A loan is usually for a fixed term, so if your circumstances change, like an extended holiday, a new job or a new addition to the family, it’s hard to get out of the loan and sell your car for a new one. With a Turners Subscription, there are no long term contracts, just a minimum subscription period of one month. If things change, simply Switch your car for another one, pause or stop the subscription.

How does car subscription compare to a car lease?2020-06-30T01:56:32+00:00

A car lease typically locks you in for up to four years and there can often be a big payment at the end.

A Turners Subscription is much more flexible, you can Switch to a different car once every 30 days, pause or stop the subscription at any time.
