Ford Credit defines "out of the UK" as anywhere outside of the UK, Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man.

Less than 12 consecutive months:

If you are travelling with your vehicle for less than 12 consecutive months, you are permitted to take the vehicle out of the UK for the duration, or if you have an Options agreement, until the Option Final Payment falls due, whichever is sooner.

During this time, the vehicle remains subject to UK law. Please ensure the following:

  • The vehicle is taxed in the UK while it is abroad
  • The vehicle has a current MOT (if applicable)
  • The vehicle is fully comprehensively insured for the duration of your trip

Please contact us if any of your contact information changes. 

Written permission is available on request.

12 consecutive months or more:

For durations of 12 consecutive months or more, or if you are permanently moving out of the UK (as defined above), the vehicle is considered permanently exported. In these circumstances, you are required to settle your account in full prior to taking the vehicle out of the UK.

If you have already taken the vehicle out of the UK, you must notify us immediately.
