Peugeot Just Add Fuel® scheme offers helping hand for young drivers

Peugeot is helping offset the rising cost of motoring for young drivers – by extending the unique Just Add Fuel® finance scheme to drivers aged 21 and over.

Just Add Fuel® allows drivers to buy a brand new Peugeot, with all-inclusive insurance, servicing, tax, roadside assistance and warranty included in the price. The deal requires a small deposit – but drivers can repay the rest in a single, fixed monthly sum, without having to worry about inflation. The simple deal makes buying a car far less daunting – especially for younger drivers.

Previously, Just Add Fuel® was only available to drivers over 25. By extending the scheme to the over 21s, Peugeot is hoping to help arrest the steady nationwide decline in the number of young drivers who own vehicles.

New figures from TGI show the number of young people who owned a vehicle dipped by 12% from 2010 to 2011. Neil Moscrop, Director of Sales at Peugeot, explained: "With insurance premiums for young drivers spiralling, there is little incentive to buy a car when the amount needed to run it seems so overwhelming. Owning a car offers a great sense of independence and freedom to young drivers, and for many, is their main way of commuting, so it’s important that this age group isn’t put off from buying and running cars indefinitely."

Under the Just Add Fuel® scheme, Peugeot vehicles for young drivers are available for a low monthly price after a deposit. The repayment won’t be affected by inflation – meaning drivers get peace of mind and a raft of important support services without worrying about an array of extra forms and fees.

'Just Add Fuel means that drivers can manage their motoring budget easily for a period of three years, the monthly cost is set and covers every aspect of car ownership, so fuel is the only element to add,' Neil Moscrop added. 'We’ve had a great response from customers eligible for the existing Just Add Fuel scheme, so widening the offer seemed like the natural next step, and also a practical solution to help keep young drivers on the road.'

Each Just Add Fuel® deal is calculated based on the model chosen, the owner’s postcode, and the age of the youngest named driver for the car. Just Add Fuel® allows drivers to spread the cost of buying a new car over three years for a fixed monthly fee. Customers can also opt to upgrade their vehicle once the agreement expires.
