In the event of an incident resulting in damage, loss or theft to the vehicle, the customer will be required to pay an excess known as a Customer Incident Charge (CIC) if they are found to be “at fault”. The CIC varies depending on the number of “at fault” incidents for the vehicle and is an escalating charge as follows:
- First incident is £250
- Second incident £350
- Third and subsequent incidents £750
For high value electric vehicles, the CIC is £1000 for the Tesla Model 3 & Y, Porsche Taycan and Audi e-tron GT and £2000 for the Tesla Model S & X and Mercedes-Benz EQS.
If a repair is lower than the CIC, then the customer will only be charged for the loss, also known as a Customer Elected Payment (CEP).
Full eligibility criteria, restrictions and policy exclusions are available upon request.
BMW 1 Series FAQs
If you’re looking for a high-tech family car with a stylish exterior design and comfortable interior cabin, the BMW 1 Series is worth considering.
Thanks to fixed monthly rentals, a lower initial outlay and road tax and breakdown cover included in your monthly payments, leasing a car is often a cheaper alternative to buying a new car through a bank loan or dealer finance.

As part of your lease agreement, you must regularly maintain and service your BMW 1 Series according to the manufacturer’s guidelines. This is typically every 15,000 miles or 12 months but varies depending on the model and your driving style. Typical annual service costs range from between £130 to £250.
To help keep maintenance costs down, you can add a servicing and maintenance package to your lease agreement. For a fixed monthly fee, a vehicle maintenance contract includes all scheduling servicing, replacement tyres, MOT and other repair costs that may be required during the contract term.

Whether you choose to buy or lease the BMW 1 Series depends on your needs and financial eligibility.
Car leasing offers many benefits over buying, such as inclusive road tax and breakdown cover, lower upfront costs, no depreciation concerns, and the opportunity to upgrade your 1 Series every two, three or four years.
However, if you prefer to own your vehicle, drive many miles each year, or have a poor credit history, buying a BMW 1 Series may be the best option.
