The 15,000 mile increase is aimed at helping drivers avoid excess mileage
Mike Betts, chief executive, motability operations explained: “The more-miles policy applies to both existing customers and new.
"We hope that anyone who has found the mileage allowance a barrier in the past will reconsider the Motability car scheme.”
In addition to the mileage allowance increase from 45,000 miles to 60,000 miles for contract hire users, customers with a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) on a five year agreement can now enjoy a total of 100,000 miles over the period of their contract.
Existing customers on the Motability scheme do not need to apply to be eligible for the changes as the increase will automatically apply to everyone.
