1. ORDERING YOUR CAR ONLINE
You may use our website to configure and order a new car online. You may also get a valuation for your current car and could apply some or all of these funds towards your new car. You can choose from two different payment options including cash or finance.
The online order process is just one of the ways by which you can configure the car you want, tailor your payment method and submit your order request.
For Cash Purchases
If you have chosen the cash payment option to purchase your car, you must be over 18 and will be subject to money laundering checks.
For Finance Purchases
If you have chosen the finance payment option to purchase your car, you must be over 18 to apply and it is subject to status, we may also require a guarantee.
Before submitting your order, you will be requested to complete an application process to verify your identity, conduct a credit assessment and if you apply for a product containing motor insurance then to assess your eligibility for it.
You will need to provide us with certain information about you and answer questions to our satisfaction. If your application is declined or cannot be processed we will send you an email with further details. If your application is successful, then we will send you the relevant contractual documentation in the post which must be signed and returned to us.
You will be required to complete the relevant contractual documentation for the finance product either at your chosen retailer or by post. Further information is explained below.
If you do not wish to use the online process, please visit your local retailer who may help you. Your local retailer will make available the same new car offers and discounts as are set out on our website in addition to their usual offering, and will allow you to pay for your new car by cash or through any other finance option that they may make available from time to time which will be subject to status and terms and conditions.
2. ROLES OF OUR RETAILERS, PSA FINANCE AND U K INSURANCE LTD
For Cash and Finance Purchases
If you order your new car through our website, our role is to take you through the online order process and allow you to place an order for a new car. You must nominate a PEUGEOT authorised Retailer (your “Retailer”) who will supply your new car to you. You may either collect your new car from your Retailer free of charge on the cessation of current COVID-19 shut down, or request free home delivery which is now available in full accordance with the UK Government’s defined social distancing & COVID-19 guidelines and protocols.
Where you choose Just Add Fuel® (as detailed in paragraph 5, below), we act as the arranger of the motor insurance (and will promote, offer and conclude your contract for insurance) and U K Insurance Limited is the underwriter of the motor insurance policy. Any motor insurance products underwritten by U K Insurance Limited shall be subject to U K Insurance Limited’s terms and conditions, as updated from time to time.
For Finance Purchases Only
Where you order a new car through our website, you may choose to pay for your new car through one of our finance packages. We act as the credit broker in respect of the finance agreement, and PSA Finance UK Ltd (“PSAF”) is the lender.
3. AVAILABILITY OF OUR WEBSITE TO ORDER VEHICLES
Our website can be used to order vehicles for delivery or collection only in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, by customers with a valid and up to date Great Britain driving licence. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept applications for PSAF finance packages if you hold a Northern Ireland driving licence.
Please note that you will not be able to complete the checkout process between the hours of midnight to 7am. This will not restrict or limit your ability to save configurations or access your Peugeot account during this time.
4. ORDER PROCESS
When placing an order through our website we will acknowledge your order online, but a contract will not be formed at this stage. We will assign a reference number to your order and tell you what it is in your order acknowledgement. Please be prepared to tell us the reference number whenever you contact us about your order.
For Cash Purchases
All documentation relating to the purchase of your car will need to be completed at your Retailer's premises.
Completion of your order and delivery or handover of your new car is conditional on you signing those documents and providing the relevant information requested by your Retailer.
Once you have signed all the documentation provided by your Retailer, a contract will be formed between you and your Retailer for the purchase of your new car.
For Finance Purchases
If you have chosen a finance payment method you are stating your intention to enter into your chosen finance package subject to these terms and conditions and the terms of your finance agreement and if applicable, U K Insurance Limited’s terms and conditions.
In this instance we will process your order, if possible, and where appropriate post to you a pack of information and documentation about your order, your chosen finance package and next steps (“Your New Car Pack”).
Please ensure you complete the documents included within Your New Car Pack in accordance with the timescales, instructions and guidance included in Your New Car Pack. Failure to do so will prevent us from further processing your order and cause unnecessary delays. Your New Car Pack will include instructions and guidance on how to return your signed finance agreement.
It is also possible to complete the necessary documentation at your Retailer's premises.
Completion of your order and delivery or handover of your new car is conditional on you signing and returning your finance agreement to PSAF where a finance payment option has been chosen.
Your New Car Pack will include your finance agreement. By signing and returning the finance agreement you are making an offer to enter into the finance agreement. PSAF’s signature of the finance agreement included in the New Car Pack does not constitute acceptance of your offer. PSAF’s acceptance of your offer to enter into your chosen finance package will take place after you have returned your signed finance agreement and provided all documentation requested by us and/or PSAF (PSAF will determine if the documentation is completed to its satisfaction and we and/or PSAF will contact you if there are any issues) and PSAF has confirmed acceptance to you.
Once PSAF has confirmed acceptance of your offer, a contract will be formed between you and PSAF for the finance and use of your new car.
For Cash and Finance Purchases
If we are unable to accept your order because of factory related issues; issues with your Just Add Fuel® eligibility (as further described in section 5 below) prior to the date of delivery or collection (as applicable); or for any other reason; we will inform you of this and let you know of any other ways by which you can obtain your new car.
5. OUR FINANCE PACKAGES
Passport is a personal contract purchase finance agreement under which you make loan repayments for the Peugeot vehicle for an agreed period of time (25, 31, 37 or 48 months), with an option (but no obligation) to purchase the Peugeot vehicle at the end of your Passport finance agreement term.
At the end of your Passport finance agreement term you have three options. You can:
- return the Peugeot vehicle with nothing more to pay (subject to excess mileage and/or damage charges);
- purchase the Peugeot vehicle by paying what we agreed it would be worth at the beginning of your Passport finance agreement (the ‘optional final payment’) plus any option to purchase fee; or
- part exchange the Peugeot vehicle for another vehicle.
The amount of the monthly payment to be paid by you under your Passport finance agreement will be determined by the size of the deposit that you provide (which can range from 0 – 40% of a vehicle’s purchase price), the term of your Passport finance agreement, the mileage which you anticipate driving during the term of your Passport finance agreement and the ’optional final payment’ for the Peugeot vehicle. The ‘optional final payment’ is forecast by us at the start of the Passport finance agreement and relates to the anticipated value of the vehicle at the end of the Passport finance agreement term.
Just Add Fuel®
Just Add Fuel® is a 37 month personal contract purchase finance agreement under which the monthly instalments which you pay include 3 years’ (36 months’) motor insurance, road fund licence, servicing and roadside assistance (the “Additional Benefits”). Please note that, given the Additional Benefits being available, Just Add Fuel® is subject to eligibility requirements linked to age and driving history which go beyond those required under a Passport finance agreement. You will need to make your own arrangements for the Additional Benefits in the final month and beyond until the vehicle is returned to us.
You may cancel any one or more of the Additional Benefits at any point during the term of your Just Add Fuel® finance agreement without receiving any penalty. If you choose to do this, your Just Add Fuel® finance agreement will continue but the Additional Benefit(s) for which payment has stopped will no longer be available and would be your responsibility going forward.
At the end of your Just Add Fuel® finance agreement term you have three options. You can:
- return the Peugeot vehicle with nothing more to pay (subject to excess mileage and/or damage charges);
- purchase the Peugeot vehicle by paying what we agreed it would be worth at the beginning of your Just Add Fuel® finance agreement (the ‘optional final payment’) plus any option to purchase fee; or
- part exchange the Peugeot vehicle for another vehicle.
The ‘optional final payment’ is forecast by us at the start of the Just Add Fuel® finance agreement and relates to the anticipated value of the vehicle at the end of the Just Add Fuel® finance agreement term.
Just Add Fuel® - Peugeot Motor Insurance
The motor insurance provided to you under your Just Add Fuel® finance agreement is called Peugeot Motor Insurance.
In order to be eligible for your Just Add Fuel® finance agreement and Peugeot Motor Insurance you must meet certain eligibility criteria. In particular, you must have held a full English, Welsh or Scottish driving licence for a minimum of 2 years, have a minimum of 2 years’ no claims discount and must not have driving convictions and/or claims in excess of those required by U K Insurance Limited from time to time. In addition, a minimum age requirement of 21, 25 or 30 may apply in respect of selected models as well as a maximum age requirement of 75 applies in all cases.
Peugeot Motor Insurance is arranged by us and underwritten by U K Insurance Limited t/a Peugeot Insurance. U K Insurance Limited is authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority.
6. ECOMMERCE PRICING
When you order a vehicle through our website, you will be provided with information about the price of your vehicle at different stages of your online journey.
At the start of your journey, the price displayed against your selected vehicle will always be based on the Manufacturer’s Recommended Retail Price, The “OTR price” means the Manufacturer’s Recommended Retail Price without any manufacturer discount or saving applied. All information and prices correct at time of publication, but are subject to change at any time without prior notice (which may occur as a result of matters including, but not limited to, any changes in legislation and/or any changes by the government). Please see our Prices and Specs brochures or contact your local Peugeot retailer for the most up-to-date prices and specification details for all models.
As you continue through your online journey, you will have the option to customise and personalise your selected vehicle. If, through the course of this process, you add or remove certain accessories or extras to your selected vehicle, the price of such accessories or extras (fully fitted) will be added to the vehicle price, which, as mentioned above, is referred to as the OTR price. Should you wish to add accessories or extras to your selected vehicle which are not available on our website, please contact us or your Retailer. As you continue through your online journey, your Retailer may offer a further contribution or discount to the OTR price (to which we may also have applied a manufacturer discount or saving in addition), so the price set out in your order summary may be different from the price displayed at the start of your online journey. As referred to above, you have the option to choose your preferred Retailer from our participating Retailers.
The price that you actually pay for your new vehicle will only ever be the OTR price or less.
7. RESERVATION FEE
If you place an order for a vehicle through our website we will ask you to pay a refundable reservation fee of £250. This will be returned to you in full if you cancel your order, within a reasonable time of you notifying us of such cancellation or, if you proceed with your order and it is accepted, prior to delivery or collection of your new vehicle. It cannot be used as part of your deposit for your finance package.
Prior to delivery or collection of your new vehicle, we will contact you to take payment of your deposit, where applicable. We will contact you by telephone, and will take payment from any of the payment cards set out in the order acknowledgement and our website.
Please note that there are limitations on the amount you can pay as a deposit towards your new vehicle (which can range from 0 – 40% of a vehicle’s purchase price).
Any card payment that we take from you will be directed through a secure payment portal and your card details will not be stored by us. Any refund (of the reservation fee or that you may otherwise be owed) will be made via the same secure payment portal and to the same card that you used to pay with. If your card has been cancelled, expired or has otherwise changed, please inform us immediately. If you fail to do this and a refund is made to your original card, you may need to coordinate with your bank or your payment services provider to obtain your refund.
Please note that we only accept payment via debit or credit card. We do not accept payment via pre-paid cards or any other payment methods including but not limited to Apple Pay and/or PayPal.
8. OUR VEHICLES
The vehicles available to order through our website are from our current manufacturable range, and may be built to order according to your specification. Certain vehicles or models may not be available depending on the finance package that you select.
The images of the vehicles and the size and dimension icons and indicators on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the sizes and colours of our vehicles, accessories and trim accurately, we cannot guarantee that your PC, laptop, tablet or phone will display the sizes or colours accurately to reflect the actual size or colour of the vehicles. Your new vehicle may vary slightly from those images.
9. CHANGES TO YOUR ORDER
If you wish to make a change to your vehicle after placing your order, please contact us as soon as possible. We will respond to your request to change your order within 2 working days of receipt of your request. Please note that it may not be possible to make your requested change where this would impact on the price of the vehicle and affect your finance agreement.
If your requested change is possible, we will let you know of any changes to the timing of delivery, collection or anything else which would result from the change. We will ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change within 1 working day of our response to your request to change your order. If we do not hear from you, we will proceed with your original order, as submitted by you.
If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, we will contact you to advise you of your options.
We may, from time to time, make minor changes to our vehicle specifications to implement small technical adjustments. We will not make any significant changes to your vehicle unless we have told you about the changes or any delivery or collection date, and have obtained your explicit agreement.
Please note that if you change your order you may also need to change your finance package and finance agreement or obtain finance from an alternative source.
Please also note that if there is a change in your circumstances which may affect the finance agreement originally signed by you, PSAF reserves the right to terminate and issue a new finance agreement which recalculates the finance amount and/or varies the finance package available to you.
You may use our website to get an estimated valuation for your existing vehicle. This is calculated based on the information you supply through our Valuation Tool and using information gathered from our Valuation partner cap hpi.
As you continue through your online journey, we or your Retailer may offer a further contribution towards your existing vehicle. This may be based on a physical inspection of the vehicle at an agreed location, date and time.
You may choose to sell your current vehicle to your Retailer or not.
If you agree to sell your current vehicle to your Retailer (part exchange), you will need to provide your Retailer with your V5 Registration Certificate, all sets of keys, MOT Certificate, Service history, spare wheel and locking wheel nuts (where applicable), radio codes and any other items which belong to the vehicle.
In accordance with the UK Government's defined social distancing and COVID-19 Guidelines and protocols, please ensure that part-exchange vehicle has received no physical contact for 3 hours prior to the agreed handover time.
The Retailer will carry out an external check of the vehicle (a complete inspection will be done at point of sale) and the steering wheel and control panel are to be disinfected by the Retailer employee wearing a protective mask and gloves.
The part exchange vehicle will then be driven onto the transporter or to the Retail Store by the employee still wearing the protective mask and gloves.
11. COLLECTION OR DELIVERY OF YOUR VEHICLE

When your new PEUGEOT is nearly ready we'll get in touch to confirm your details, handover date and time and next steps.

Delivery will only be made to your home address, which must be the same as the billing address on your finance agreement. There is no charge applied for home delivery.
Your Retailer will drive your vehicle to your home address. Please note that mileage of the vehicle on delivery will include the delivery miles.
We will agree a time slot with you for delivery of your vehicle which will be between either 9.00am and 1.00pm or 1.00pm and 5.00pm on a weekday (excluding bank holidays). If your preferred time for delivery falls outside these time periods delivery at your preferred time will be at your Retailer's discretion.
Your Retailer will only deliver your new vehicle to the person named as the customer in the order acknowledgement. Delivery will not be completed if:
- you fail to provide your Retailer with your order reference number and appropriate identification documentation confirming you are the customer as stated in the order confirmation;
- on arrival at your address there is no clear and safe place for your Retailer to park your new vehicle; and/or
- conditions at your home address fail to meet reasonable health and safety standards, or where delivery would put your Retailer at risk of injury or death.
You are required to provide your Retailer with proof of your identity and address and copies of your proof of identity and address upon delivery of your vehicle. Your Retailer will verify these documents before your vehicle is released to you and your Retailer will retain the copies you provide.
If you are not present in person at your home address at the agreed time and date to take delivery of your new vehicle, your Retailer will leave you a note informing you of their attempted delivery and of how to rearrange delivery or collection.
If you do not re-arrange delivery, we will contact you for further instructions. You may be charged for any further delivery costs, which will be notified to you prior to such re-arranged delivery. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection within 7 days of the date of the original delivery attempt PSAF may end the contract.
Collect from Retailer
If you have chosen to collect the vehicle from your Retailer's premises, you will be given a time for collection on your selected date, which will be on or after the Confirmed Delivery Date.
You are required to provide your Retailer with proof of your identity and address when you collect your vehicle. Your Retailer will verify and make copies of these documents before your vehicle is released to you.
You will not be charged a delivery fee where you choose to collect your vehicle from your Retailer.
12. RISK AND OWNERSHIP
Your new car will be your responsibility from the time your Retailer delivers the car to your home address or you collect it from your Retailer's premises.
If you have chosen the finance payment option to purchase your car, you will not own the car until PSAF has received payment in full, including the optional final payment. Please refer to your finance agreement for further details.
If you have chosen the cash payment option to purchase your car, you will not own the car until your Retailer has received payment in full.
You will be the registered keeper of the car and you are responsible for taxing, insuring and servicing the car while you remain the registered keeper.
Where you have chosen a cash purchase or Passport finance package, you must ensure that you have appropriate insurance cover to drive the car away.
If delivery or collection of your new vehicle is delayed by an event outside our control or the control of your Retailer then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract with PSAF and receive a refund for any amounts that you have already paid in respect of your vehicle.
14. CANCELLATION AND WITHDRAWAL
Please read the following text carefully.
Cancelling your Order
If you change your mind about an order for a car that you have placed online, you can cancel your order at any time before you sign the finance agreement or you sign the order for your car which incorporates your Retailers terms and conditions (the “Retailer Terms”) (whichever is applicable).
Please contact us as soon as you change your mind about the car or finance agreement (if appropriate). You will not be charged for the car and any money that you have paid by way of reservation fee will be refunded (as further described in section 7 above).
You cannot cancel the order after you have signed the finance agreement or the Retailer Terms and your rights are as set out below.
Withdrawing from your Finance Agreement
For any car ordered online through a Passport or Passport with Just Add Fuel® finance agreement, you acknowledge that the finance agreement is a credit agreement.
You have the right to withdraw from your finance agreement within 14 days from the day after signing the agreement. If you exercise your right to withdraw, you must notify PSAF immediately in writing or by telephone and you understand that you must repay to PSAF the amount of the credit under your finance agreement, plus interest at the rate specified in your finance agreement, within 30 days. Only if you do so will the car become yours. You do not need to tell us why you have decided to withdraw and we will not ask you for your reason.
You acknowledge that your right to withdraw from the finance agreement is your only right if you do not wish to proceed with the finance agreement, and that consumer laws relating to off-premise or distance sales do not provide a right of cancellation in respect of credit agreements. This means that you cannot return the car after delivery or collection for a refund if you change your mind. This does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer if the car is faulty, does not meet its specification or otherwise (see Consumer Rights below).
15. CONSUMER RIGHTS
You have certain legal rights in connection with your purchase/financing of a new vehicle.
If, on delivery, collection or handover of your new vehicle, you discover a fault or find that the vehicle does not meet the specification chosen by you on our website, you must report this to your Retailer who will discuss your rights and remedies with you. You should contact your Retailer as soon as possible since a delay in doing so might affect any remedy available to you.
You have legal rights if your Retailer refuses to deliver the vehicle or make it available for collection, or if they are late in delivering the vehicle to you, or making it available for collection by you (where you have told us before we accepted your order that delivery or collection on the Confirmed Delivery Date was essential). You can give your Retailer a new deadline for delivery (which must be reasonable), or you can cancel your order and reject the vehicle. If the vehicle has been delivered to you, you must either return it in person to your Retailer , or allow them to collect it from you. Your Retailer will pay the costs of collection.
16. OUR LIABILITY TO YOU
If we do not comply with these terms and conditions, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaching any term or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract is made, both we and you know it might happen, for example, if you discuss it with us before you place your order.
We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or sub-contractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your consumer rights in relation to the vehicle.
We only supply vehicles for domestic and private use. If you use your new vehicle for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

1. RESERVATION PROCESS
You may reserve a vehicle online, after payment of a £500 reservation fee – see section 2 below. If you reserve a vehicle on the PEUGEOT UK Website, you are not making an offer to purchase a vehicle.
Please note by submitting a reservation on the PEUGEOT UK Website you are not submitting an order for or offering to purchase a vehicle from your Retailer, and your Retailer's acceptance of your reservation does not form a contract for the sale and purchase of a vehicle between you and your Retailer. If you wish to order your reserved vehicle you will need to book an appointment to visit your Retailer, where your Retailer will be happy to progress your reservation (as described in Sections 3, 4 and 5 below).
2. RESERVATION FEE
Where you reserve a vehicle through the PEUGEOT UK Website, you will be asked to pay a refundable reservation fee of £500 in full and cleared funds. This will be returned to you in full, whether you decide to order the reserved vehicle or not.
Any card payment that is taken from you via the PEUGEOT UK Website will be directed through a secure portal and your card details will not be stored by your Retailer or PEUGEOT UK. Any refund (of the reservation fee or that you may otherwise be owed) will be made via the same secure payment portal and to the same card that you used to pay with. If your card has been cancelled, expired or has otherwise changed, please inform us immediately.

PEUGEOT UK will not pay interest on your reservation fee, in any circumstances.
Subject to the exact configuration of your new vehicle, if you go on to successfully order your new vehicle, the timing for delivery of your new vehicle will be allocated chronologically, based on the date you reserved your vehicle.

27. SPARE WHEELS
As part of our commitment to reduce CO2 emissions, spare wheels are no longer available as a factory option for all cars and PEUGEOT Rifter and Traveller.
Emissions testing uses the vehicle weight to rate CO2 and so the lighter the vehicle, the less CO2 is emitted. For example, a typical 17” alloy wheel weighs around 20kg, which can add up to 9g of CO2 to an average vehicle’s emissions.
All our vehicles will be provided with a repair kit (compressor and sealant cartridge) as standard, which are lighter and smaller than a spare wheel, therefore lowering the CO2 rating and aiding fuel economy. This can help to save money in both road tax and fuel, while ensuring our customers are prepared in the event of a puncture.
Please note: PEUGEOT 108 is currently excluded from this and will keep the spare wheel as standard or optional for technical reasons.
Spare Wheel Kits
To make sure spare wheels are still available for our customers who prefer to have them, an emergency spare wheel kit is now offered from our accessories range. These consist of an emergency spare wheel, tool kit, and a mounting basket for PEUGEOT Rifter and Traveller.
The emergency spare wheel is smaller than a full size wheel and should only be used as a temporary solution, with speed and distance limited to 50 mph/miles.
Most cars will require a factory order mounting option to be able to fit the spare wheel kit. Please let your PEUGEOT Retailer know you would like a spare wheel when ordering your new vehicle to ensure the mounting option is included where applicable.
- The spare wheel kit is installed prior to collection of your new vehicle.
- It is fitted to the boot floor, or under body for PEUGEOT Rifter and Traveller, for safety and to prevent noise.
- Emergency spare wheel is easier to change and takes up less boot space than a full size wheel.
- Tool kit is included.
- In the event of a puncture or other damage, you can safely get to a destination to repair or replace the damaged wheel.
Please note: Electric and hybrid vehicles are excluded for architectural reasons.
Please contact your local PEUGEOT Retailer for more information and pricing.
