Trade-in

This is the best thing about the Choice program. At the end of your term, you can upgrade your vehicle by trading in your old one, so you can enjoy the latest and greatest that ŠKODA has to offer. Finance your new car with a new ŠKODA Choice contract and continue on your journey. 

Retain

If you and your car have formed a special bond, you don’t have to say goodbye. You can simply purchase your vehicle outright for the Guaranteed Future Value^ you locked in at the beginning of your contract. Alternatively, we can help you refinance the outstanding amount with the intention of you keeping the vehicle at the end of that period.

Return

If you want to return your vehicle at the end of the term, you can! Subject to your agreed kilometres and fair wear and tear guidelines, you can just take your vehicle to your ŠKODA dealership and we’ll pay you the Guaranteed Future Value^ amount. And if you find another ŠKODA that takes your fancy, that’s even better!

Examples

Maintaining your ŠKODA

Guaranteed Future Value

A new car is always an exciting thing, and when you’ve taken home the perfect ŠKODA for you, you want to keep it in top notch condition. To protect your guaranteed minimum future value, your ŠKODA needs to be in an acceptable condition when you return it to us, and you need to keep within your specified kilometre limit. We know there’s going to be some day-to-day wear and tear because that’s how life is, but to maintain the value, you should stay within the guidelines set in your contract.

You can find the specifics outlined in our Fair Wear and Tear Guide which can be downloaded below.

ŠKODA Choice FAQ

Am I able to finance factory options, warranty and insurance under the ŠKODA Choice program?

ŠKODA Choice doesn't restrict you adding factory fitted options, warranty or eligible insurance products in your finance contract. Your Business Manager can tell you more about your options.

What finance terms are available with ŠKODA Choice?

ŠKODA Choice is available on terms ranging from 12 to 48 months, depending on your needs.

What happens if I exceed the kilometre restrictions?

You set your kilometre limit at the beginning of your contract to reflect your vehicle use over the period of your finance term. If you do go over it though, you may be able to just pay an excess kilometre charge that will reduce the value of your Guaranteed Future Value.

What is the ‘acceptable condition’ of a vehicle?

This takes into account a vehicle’s age, kilometres and overall condition from mechanics to bodywork, electrics to upholstery. It includes assumptions on the amount of deterioration reasonable for everyday use – what we call ‘fair wear and tear’. You can find more information about Fair Wear and Tear by downloading our guide under the Maintenance section.

What models are available with ŠKODA Choice?

You can use Choice with a range of new and demonstrator ŠKODA vehicles. Visit your local ŠKODA dealer for more details.

^The ŠKODA Choice Program consists of an option to return the vehicle to ŠKODA Financial Services (SFS)** at the end of the term and require SFS** to purchase the vehicle at an agreed price known as the Guaranteed Future Value or GFV as determined by SFS** and set out in your contract. At the end of the term, you can elect to: (1) trade-in the vehicle; (2) exercise the option to return the vehicle; or (3) retain the vehicle by paying the GFV. The GFV is not a representation by SFS** as to the likely market value of the vehicle as at the end of your contract. The option is available on new and demonstrator ŠKODA vehicles for selected models only. Please verify with your dealership the vehicles that are eligible for the program. The GFV will be reduced, and you will be liable for any loan contract deficit, if you exceed the nominated kilometre allowance and/or the vehicle is not in an acceptable condition in accordance with the Fair Wear and Tear Guide available at www.skodafinancialservices.com.au.
