Thus, the number of corporate vehicles in operating leasing on the Slovak market was 23,800 in 2014. However, compared to western Europe, operating leasing is still a new form of financing and administering car fleets, Business Lease opined, as quoted by the SITA newswire.

It has been growing especially thanks to three main trends – a gradual shift from financial to operating leasing, “also small companies transferring to operating leasing, and its growing popularity among Slovak companies without any foreign capital”, according to Lucia Čišková of Business Lease Slovakia.

They foresee the future trend as continued growth, mainly due to growing electro-mobility, gradual growth of natural persons in operating leasing, and also in car-sharing.
