During an agreement

The lessee agrees to make regular rental payments to the lessor in accordance with the contract hire agreement and must keep the vehicle fully insured as well as in roadworthy and good general condition.

Annual Vehicle Excise Duty (road tax) can be included in the rentals – subject to the terms and conditions set by the lessor. 

Service and maintenance plans are often incorporated into contract hire agreements to provide the lessee with fixed cost motoring. This helps planning and budgeting.
