    I've just booked my car in for its 2-year service. I booked a courtesy car for the day only to be informed that they are now charging £12.50 for the privilege.

    This is new to me. Anybody else's stealer the same?

    Yep,my last service cost an additional fee pounds for courtesy car.

    Given not everyone would need one, I don't mind too much.

    Haha, that's what I got last time. An awful Mii by Mango in beige or some such colour. Handled like a pig and had as much power as a carrier bag in the wind. Dreadful stuff.

    Oh joy, just setup my service plan but there was no mention of inclusion of courtesy car in the plan. Going to need one as they're 30 miles from where I work, not like Vauxhall who were on same street albeit a 15-20 minute walk.

    They've been doing this for years, I think it's something to do with insurance

    Maybe some dealers have but Volkswagen nor Seat have ever charged me before. The first time I have been charged is today. £12.50 as well! What's the point?

    When I had my Golf the dealer tried to charge me extra for the courtesy car, said it was to do with the insurance but when I showed that my policy covered me to drive cars loaned to me by the trade the charge was waived.

    There was a notice about a daily insurance charge on the service desk when I took my car in and had a courtesy car for a week. Nothing was mentioned and I wasn't charged for it. Maybe because it was in for warranty work??

    Perry's in Aylesbury has charged for a while as well. Definitely wouldn't pay if the car was in for warranty work though.

    haven't needed warranty work, just routine servicing, and paid £12.50 for a Mii both times (Letchworth Autoway).
    will try and pre-handle this next time by asking for something different to mine - X-Perience or Cupra ST maaybe:)

    My dealer has been charging that for years if you want a courtesy car while yours is being serviced. No charge when I had warranty work done

    Haha, well I think it's a Mii for me as usual. Be good if I could get like-for-like but I doubt it. I'd be interested in getting one of those new Seat crossovers as a courtesy car.

    When I had my previous Leon serviced towards the end of last year I got a free courtesy car, but it was a Skoda Rapid diesel.

    I took my Ibiza 1.4 TSI ACT in for a service and was given a very very new Ibiza 1.2, charged £12.50. There was about 1/3rd of a tank of petrol so I took it for a drive to see how it compared to mine, probably got my moneys worth :)

    My local dealer has never charged me for a loan car. My car has been in twice for warranty work and once for a 10k service and never had to pay for a loan car. Listers Seat in Coventry
