|Voluntary Termination||Voluntary Surrender||Part Exchange|
|What is this option?||A Voluntary Termination is your right under Section 99 of the Consumer Credit Act to hand back the vehicle at any point in the agreement with the requirement that you must pay, or have paid, up to half of the total amount payable which is set out in your contract under "Termination: Your Rights".||A Voluntary surrender is the option to hand the vehicle back at any point during the agreement, where it will be sold at auction by us. The net sale proceeds (proceeds after auction costs have been deducted) will be credited to your account which will reduce your account balance. You will remain liable to pay any remaining outstanding balance.||Part Exchange is something you can do at any point you wish to change the vehicle and end your finance agreement. You do this through a dealership.|
