Default Car lease including insurance for 18 year old

My 18 year old grandson tells me that he is about to lease a car which includes tax, insurance etc. for about £200 per month over a three year period.

I would have thought that the insurance alone would have cost about that.

No further details given and no paperwork seen.

Anyone (apart from cyclonebri) heard of these schemes?

You're right about the insurance. DD is 21 and paying £1200 for a small Corsa.

I'm not sure an 18 year old can lease a car, can they?

long term leases are alomost like HP in value/cost, long term lease would be in that region
Target Savings by end 2009: 20,000
current savings: 20,500 (target hit yippee!)
Debts: 8000 (student loan so doesnt count)

new target savings by Feb 2010: 30,000

The nearest i can see to this is £207 for a new Peugeot 207 including servicing, insurance, etc, but its for over 21'st only?
