Skoda has come a long way in the past twenty years. Once the butt of many jokes as a brand with a reputation for cars that didn’t last, the Skoda has made a complete U-turn and been revolutionised. Skoda now rate highly in driver satisfaction surveys with buyers loving the value for money, excellent driveability and the amount of space inside.
Skoda make cars that are spacious, safe, reliable and cheap to run. Skoda’s city car, the Citigo is award winning and must be seen as a serious contender when buying a small, car.
The Skoda brand has grown in popularity in recent years and this has been propelled by Citigo, the compact city car. Citigo has received rave reviews from What Car magazine and has been voted Best City Car at the 2016 New Car Awards. With excellent value, a spacious cabin, top marks for safety and reliability as well as being thrilling to drive, it’s no wonder that so many of our drivers love this smart little car.
Since Skoda became part of the Volkswagen group in 2000, the Citigo shares the same underpinnings as the Volkswagen Up! They both are small but surprisingly roomy inside. Both have excellent running costs with identical fuel economy and emissions. They both represent excellent value, but because the Citigo is cheaper to buy than the Up! it has won many awards and great acclaim from the motoring industry.
What is a guarantor?
A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments. Before agreeing to become a guarantor for young driver, it is important you check that you would be able to afford the repayments (if they fail to pay the finance instalments), as non-payment pay could affect both yours, and their, credit score and result in repossession of the car.
How does the insurance work?
We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Highway Insurance (part of the Liverpool Victoria Group)
How long until I get my new car?
Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?
If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.
What happens after the first year?
We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
