Moving abroad - Car Lease

Anybody know what happens to your car lease if you are leaving the country?

I'd prefer to keep on paying the lease and using the car for a few months (in the UK) . Not sure if you can do that though once you've deregistered etc.

Funny thing is my insurance co. says that I can keep Swiss plates on the car and be insured here in Switzerland for another 6 months.

Maybe I could just keep paying the lease and using the car till then, then bring it back and pay off the rest of lease (1 year).

Any ideas/thoughts anyone?

If the insurance company says, you can prolonge the insurance after you left, that should be fine. However, if you want to pay off the lease after 6 months and then take the car with you, it might be subject to UK import taxes. I would clarify this in advance with the UK customs.
