The Motability Scheme is an affordable and worry-free way for you to lease one of many cars available in exchange for your mobility allowance. At Budgen, customers living with a mental or physical health condition can benefit from the Motability Scheme.
Motability is all about offering our customers with disabilities the chance to enjoy the freedom that a car can provide, so you can travel when and where you want – whether that’s to visit family or do the weekly food shop. On the scheme, you’re able to have two named drivers on your policy, so you can drive the car and you can name another driver.

How to apply
The Motability Scheme has been designed to make it easy for you to use your allowance to get a car. There’s a sensible pricing structure that covers everything you need – all you have to pay for is fuel! Your options are:
Pay less than your mobility allowance. Choose from around 150 cars in exchange for some of your benefits. You’ll still be paid the remainder of your allowance directly by the Department for Work and Pensions or Veterans UK.
Exchange all your weekly mobility allowance. Find your perfect Motability vehicle from a selection of more than 300 cars if you use all your benefits.
Make a one-off upfront payment. If you’re looking for a more expensive car, you can choose to use all of your allowance and make an advance payment. Depending on what you want to pay, a range of luxury cars are available on the scheme. If it’s your first Motability car, you can trade in your existing car to help finance the upfront payment.
