More and more people are opting for the Carvolution car subscription. This is not surprising, because unlike buying or leasing a car, you always have an overview of the total cost of the car. What's more, the fixed monthly price includes everything about the car, i.e. you don't have to worry about insurance, taxes, service, cantonal registration or tyres.
The popularity of car subscriptions continues to grow
You can either buy a new car, lease it or drive it on a subscription basis. Your choice depends on your needs. But Professor Ferdinand Dudenhöffer of the CAR Center in Duisburg believes that more and more people are opting for a car subscription because there are good reasons for it: 'The car subscription is simple, transparent and cost-effective for the customer,' Professor Dudenhöffer told Handelsblatt earlier last week.
If you choose your car from Carvolution, the best-known car subscription provider in Switzerland, you always have the total costs of your car under control thanks to the fixed monthly price. This is because comprehensive insurance, taxes, cantonal registration, service and tyres or tyre changes are included. The only thing you have to do is to fill up or recharge your car.
You can choose the car of your dreams from 35 models of different makes. Whether it's a small car, an SUV, an estate car, a sedan or a hybrid or electric car.
Leasing, car purchase or car subscription
If you drive your car on a subscription basis, you run no financial risk. The insurance premiums do not increase. Unexpected visits to the workshop are also a thing of the past. Dudenhöffer also confirms this: "With the car subscription, the customer is free of risk, which is what makes it so attractive."
What's more, with Carvolution you've never been so flexible on the road. You drive your car for 3 months or 3 years, it's up to you. You won't find rigid leasing contracts at Carvolution, most of which are valid for several years. Moreover, you don't have to deal with all the paperwork. We order your plates, register it for you and take care of the insurance. All you have to do is get behind the wheel and drive away.
And unlike leasing, you remain very flexible in terms of kilometres. There are no fixed kilometrage rates. You choose one, and if you find that you drive too much or too little, you can adjust your mileage package yourself in the app. This way you always pay exactly what you need.
The total cost of the car
What is the total cost of a car? Do you know what costs you have to take into account? Many underestimate them, as a survey conducted by the German CAR Institute in collaboration with the technology provider IBM shows. Almost half of the 1163 participants reported unexpected costs. Unexpected repairs were mentioned most often.
If you don't know whether to buy your car, lease it or drive it on a subscription basis, it's worth looking closely at the total costs. This is what the Swiss consumer magazine Saldo has done. In a price comparison with a 3-year term, it came to the conclusion that the Carvolution car subscription with insurance, cantonal registration, taxes, service and tyres can be cheaper than buying a new car. Leasing and credit, on the other hand, are the most expensive. According to this calculation, customers save about 22,300 francs when they drive a car with Carvolution.
If you look at the cars or car prices on the Carvolution website, the prices seem high at first glance. But this is not the case, because unlike buying and leasing, all costs related to the car are already included. All you have to do is fill up or charge the car.
If you want to make a comparison yourself, it is therefore important that you include all costs, including the deposit, insurance and the costs for tyres, tyre changes and storage.
What's right for you?
It's up to you to decide whether you want to buy your car, lease it or drive it on a subscription basis. Ultimately, it always depends on your own needs. If you want to drive your car with Carvolution, you can choose the car of your dreams, set up your subscription, i.e. you choose the kilometrage package, the insurance cover, the minimum duration and your canton of residence, and this determines the price of the subscription. No long-term commitment and you remain flexible at all times.
