We had a change of circumstance towards the latter past of last year and ended up being a LEAF only family, and as a result mileage has increased beyond that which we expected.

We're on FLEX and had the lowest mileage allowance, and this has rapidly been closing in, ruling out any "joy riding" in the LEAF.

So I called RCI, spoke to a really helpful assistant, emailed them, had forms emailed back to me, and and already I'm on a higher limit! True, I'm on higher payments, but no nasty surprises or additional charges.

Brilliant.

So if you are on FLEX and end up in a position like we did, have no fear, help is at hand, you are NOT stuck on the limit you set when you sign up. :)

No one is admitting cost here?
Nobody was asking? o_O

Gone from £70 to £83 a month. Still better value per month (with the car PCP) than the S-Max I was burning around in, and it's lovely, new and electric. :D

No intention to keep beyond the three years, so I'm not in the slightest bit worried about that, or residuals (what residuals?!). ;)

Horses for courses. Either pay an extra £5k for the car or £5k on lease payments. For us as our mileage is only going to be at most 9k a year the Flex worked out cheaper overall. For higher mileages and for those who intend to keep the car past 3 years then non flex would certainly make sense.
Yep, we did the figures about five different ways and FLEX was cheapest over the three years (up to 10k) and beyond that isn't a concern.
