Can You Return a Leased Car Early?

Can you return a leased car early? Returning a leased car early is possible, but you’ll need to check with your leasing company as some don’t allow for early termination. If you do return your lease early, then you’ll be responsible for paying off the owed amount, including any penalty fees and other fees.
