What is an acquisition fee?
The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "Acquisition Fee."
An acquisition fee is the price you pay for obtaining an auto lease. It reflects various administrative and insurance-related expenses, such as what it costs the leasing company to get a copy of your credit report and verify that you have insurance.
Everything has its price -- including a car lease. The cost of setting one up is called an acquisition fee, and you might pay it upfront or have it rolled into your monthly payments.
