Top Five Best PCP finance deals

PCP deals aren't for everyone, but if you're after low monthly payments and want a new car, they can be cost effective. These are the best five finance deals on some of the UK's favourite cars, available through manufacturer schemes and sourced through research of manufacturer websites.

Hyundai i10 1.0 SE

The i10 may not be the most stylish or desirable model around but it's genuinely a brilliant small car. This deal with Arnold Clark is £149 a month and requires just £149 as a deposit. Just be aware that the annual mileage limit is fairly low at 6000 miles.

Citroen C1 VTi 72 Feel 3dr - £159 per month

This deal might not appear to be particularly cheap in comparison to some others on this list, but bear with us. The C1 has everything demanding buyers want from a city car such as DAB, a touchscreen interface and air conditioning. Where this deal comes good is that it asks for just a £1 deposit (yes that's not a typo) and at only 2.9% APR.

I am buying a new car - what is the best way to insure it until I sell the old one?

I am buying a car from my dad - a 2013 Volkswagen Golf - and then selling my current car privately. I expect to have both cars for about a month in total. What is the best way to insure them while I have two?
You can either insure them separately, or on your existing policy. If you do not have long left on your old policy, contact them and request proof of no claims for the new insurer and policy - then run both policies parallel to each other. If you are at the start of the policy, put your new vehicle on that policy, insurers generally will allow you to have both vehicles on the same policy from a few weeks to a month.

How much would a decent dash cam cost?

What would be the cost of a reasonably priced, good dash camera?
I'd say to get a good dash cam you'd need to spend at least £30. You can definitely get them for less, but the footage quality isn't always great. For an extra tenner, it's worth knowing you can see the reg number or particular details in the event of an accident. The Aukey DR01 is currently £50 on Amazon right now, but we've seen it as low as £38. It's not got many features but the footage quality is very decent, review here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/AUKEY-Supercapacitor-Dashboard-Recording-Dual-Port-Black/dp/B01LWN99YA/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1531131508&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=aukey+dr01&psc=1 Obviously if you spend more, you'll get better footage quality and features (like GPS, WiFi etc). But if you just want a basic camera, you can find a host of good ones for less than £50 on Amazon. Check out our top ten best dash cams under £50: https://kit.honestjohn.co.uk/top-tens/top-10-dash-cams-under-50-1/ Alternatively, you can take a look at the reviews of all the dash cams we've tested for a variety of prices: https://kit.honestjohn.co.uk/category/dash-cams/
