The Bentley Lease-End Process, Explained

Now that your lease is coming to an end, it's time to start planning your next adventure by exploring all your lease-end options. What are those options, you ask?

End-of-Lease Options

Retain

Just because you're under contract to return your Bentley lease at such-and-such time, doesn't mean your journey has to end! You can buy out your Bentley lease instead by financing or paying for it in cold, hard cash (or a check works, too).

Return

If you really want to live life without your Bentley, you can return it to the dealership and walk away. You'll be charged for any excess mileage, wear and use, and disposition fees, per the terms of your contract. If you have any outstanding fees or questions about next steps, our Bentley financing professionals are here to help.

Did you know that you can bring your Bentley lease to any Bentley dealership? For instance, if you leased a Flying Spur in California, then relocated to South Florida before its maturity date, we'll happily accept it when your lease expires!

Re-Lease

You can also return your leased Bentley and lease another one. Kids growing up? Move from a Continental GT lease to a Bentayga! Have a newly empty nest? Swap out your Bentayga lease for a Bentley Mulsanne! Your choice.Extend

If you require more time to make a decision regarding your luxury car lease, you can request a short-term Bentley lease extension. Contact your leasing company to make a formal request.

Return Requirements

Pre-Inspection

Before returning your leased Bentley, you'll want to schedule a free pre-inspection. This will enable you to address any damaged areas before your lease maturity date arrives. Damage may include:

Maintenance

All scheduled maintenance must be up to date, per the owner's manual. No service or warning lights should be illuminated, all systems should be in working order, and there should be no missing or broken items, including key fobs, headrests, and owner's manuals.

Aftermarket 

Your Bentley lease must be returned in the same shape as it was when you took the keys. No aftermarket alterations are allowed. Any such modifications should be removed prior to your Bentley lease's maturity date.

Common Bentley End-of-Lease FAQs 

Will Bentley Financial Services contact me before the end of my lease?

Yes, you will receive several communications from Bentley Financial Services. 120 days prior to your lease-end date you will receive a brochure and self-assessment tool to help inform you of your lease-end process and options. 90 days prior to your scheduled maturity date a Bentley lease-end representative will contact you to present your end of term options. 60 days prior to your lease-end date a Bentley lease-end representative will assist you with scheduling a pre-inspection and answer any questions you may have regarding the lease-end process.

What is my lease maturity date?

The lease maturity date is the date your vehicle is due to be returned to an authorized Bentley dealer or purchased. Details of the lease maturity are found in your lease agreement or extension agreement if applicable.

Can I pay my end of lease bill with a credit card?

Personal debit cards and bank account information can be used to pay your end of lease bill. Credit cards are not accepted at this time.

 Is my payoff negotiable?

Your payoff amount is determined at the time of lease signing. Unfortunately, this amount is contractual and not negotiable.

Is the pre-inspection required?

The pre-inspection is not required but we do recommend that you take advantage of this complimentary inspection as it provides awareness of any necessary repairs that will need to be made prior to your lease-end date to avoid excess wear charges. Repairs must be performed at your authorized Bentley dealer. Please be sure to send in your repair receipt prior to returning your vehicle so that charges for repaired excess wear may be removed.

If I choose to forgo the complimentary pre-inspection, when and how will my vehicle inspection take place?

A final inspection to determine excess wear will take place at the dealer, typically within a few days of your vehicle return by our third-party inspection provider. Excess mileage charges are determined by the terms of your lease agreement.

Can my authorized Bentley dealer perform the final inspection on my vehicle?

The dealer cannot determine any excess wear charges on your vehicle. All charges are determined by AutoVIN, our third-party inspection provider.

What do I need to do to return my vehicle at lease-end?

Contact your authorized Bentley dealer 30 days prior to your lease maturity date to schedule your lease-end vehicle return. 

Do I return my license plates when I turn in my vehicle?

No, not if you are returning a Bentley lease in Miami. If you are a resident of New Jersey, Connecticut or Massachusetts, please be aware that we will require a plate return receipt after the return of your vehicle. Be sure to verify with your returning dealer if they will be turning in your places and remitting a return receipt on your behalf.

What should I bring when returning my Bentley vehicle?

Please bring both key fobs, owner's manual, and all removable options and accessories.

What charges will be on my final End of Term invoice once I've returned my Bentley?

Your invoice may include any excess wear that was not repaired prior to return, any excess mileage charge, any property tax charge, any fees remaining on the account at the time of return (e.g. late fees, citations, etc.) and any disposition fee.

What does the disposition fee cover and can it be waived?

The disposition fee covers reconditioning the vehicle, transportation costs, any associated auction fees and fees to inspect the vehicle. This fee will be waived with another qualifying Bentley Financial Services account. 

What happens if I went over my allotted mileage?

You will be charged any mileage in excess of the allotted mileage agreed to at lease signing. The best place to find detailed information regarding mileage charges is your lease agreement.

Can I purchase additional mileage?

Purchase of additional mileage is not offered at this time. Any mileage over your contracted allowance will be billed per your lease agreement.
