If you return your car in good condition, you could be eligible to receive our Good Condition Bonus. The amount you receive depends on the length of the agreement: it's currently £600 for a three-year lease and £900 for a five-year lease. The Good Condition Bonus is our way of saying thank you for looking after your Motability Scheme car. When you return your car at the end of your lease, it is sold, either online through a network of dealers, or at an auction house. Handing back your car in good condition helps us to achieve the best prices, keeping costs low for all our customers.
When you hand back your car, we will take a photo and brief description of the car's condition. We know that over the course of your lease your car may show signs of wear and tear including minor scratches, dents or damage caused by wheelchairs or other mobility aids. However, if your car shows no sign of serious damage, you could be eligible for the bonus. You may still be entitled even if you have made an insurance claim or have a car on a low mileage lease extension.
Receiving the bonus
If you are in line to receive the bonus, there is no need to contact Motability - they will automatically send you a cheque within 28 days of the car being returned. Please note, if you requested an early payment of your £600 GCB due to the COVID-19 situation you will not receive this payment again. If your lease is for longer than three years, you will receive the balance of this payment. For example, if you are a WAV customer in a five-year lease you will receive a £300 payment as the balance of your GCB.

Figures shown are for comparability purposes; only compare fuel consumption and CO2 figures with other vehicles tested to the same technical procedures. These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load. There is a new test used for fuel consumption and CO2 figures (known as WLTP). The CO2 figures shown however, are based on a calculation designed to be equivalent to the outgoing (NEDC) test cycle and will be used to calculate vehicle tax on first registration. Choice of wheels and other options may affect fuel consumption and emissions data. For more information, please see WLTP Info or contact your local ŠKODA retailer.
