Hello all, I’m looking for some ‘on hand’ experience from users of Onto before potentially joining the service myself.
I passed my test years ago but finances dictated I could never get a car until this point. I’d really like an electric vehicle for a number of reasons, but largely because I think it’s the future and the way to go.
I’ve recently discovered Onto and I’m very attracted to the idea of a one month contract as opposed to the 48 months I’d be tied into with PCP etc as I’m acutely aware of how situations can change drastically.
At the minute my biggest issue is whether Onto would represent value for money for me as I work from home and most of my driving would be picking th gf up from work/driving her to, doing shopping or getting the dog out further than we can now. In other words, I doubt I’d ever hit the 750 miles a month. I’ve read on here and in other reviews that if you’re not doing so then it doesn’t represent value for money, but is that something all agree with? Or does the 1 month contract sort of offset that?
Similarly, my big issue at the minute is the £1000 excess as it seems heavy and would be tricky to manage should the situation arise. I’ve seen this can be offset with extra insurance from other companies but I’m not sure how that works so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thirdly, what is the experience with Onto like when it comes to delivery of vehicles, payments etc. In short, is it a hassle or have the majority of the users here had good experiences?
In summary, I’d just like actual Onto user’s thoughts on the matter, particularly after reading the Value for Money thread on here.
Does Onto represent value for money compared to and ICE vehicle, or even an EV on a PCP deal contract?
Is the £1000 excess something that can be more easily dealt with than it seems?
What has the Onto experience been like for you?
Any help or opinions would be greatly appreciated, I look forward to chatting with you all!
