Default Changing Motability car early

I am the named driver on my daughters motability car and we have had the current car for 18months now. We have just found out that our family is soon to increase in size. Does anyone know if we could exchange the car earlier than the 3 years is up so we could have a bigger car to better accomodate us all? Or even give it back early so we could buy a car big enough ourselves?

Any advice which could help would be appreciated.

We exchanged a car after 12 months, due to a similar change of circumstances ( late 2010).

Motabilty were very understanding and gave us the go ahead during the first phone call.

Got a pro rate rebate on the advance payment, but no 'good condition' bonus.

Call them and you should find them very empathetic.

We are changing ours a little earlier than needed due to DS2 being stretched so he's now too tall to fit on his current one
Our Motability adviser has always been really helpful at the garage we use as have the helpline for Motability who have ok'd the early swap.
