Foreigners living in America and looking to cruise the open road are in luck. The newly launched ExpatRide.com provides financing and leasing options for new and used cars for expats without a U.S. credit score or a U.S. driver's license.
Instead of paying the dealer for the car, ExpatRide, in conjunction with Enterprise, will finance any new or used car on their behalf from any dealership nationwide. Finance charges from ExpatRide are then added into the driver's monthly payment. Since expatriates start with a credit score of zero when moving to the U.S. regardless of how much money they have in foreign banks, the new service eliminates the hassles that come from not having any established credit here.
If only it was this easy for everyone to get a car without dealing with technicalities like credit scores and driver's licenses.
