Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you needed some flexibility from your contract? Maybe you moved to a new city and your internet provider doesn't service the area. Perhaps you were fed up with your cell phone provider and wanted to change carriers. Whatever the situation might be, life is constantly throwing a wrench in our carefully made plans.

When this happens, it is best to figure out what actions you can take so you don't have to pay more money than you agreed upon in your contract. These examples can happen in the middle of a vehicle lease contract, and most dealerships will try to bombard you with cancellation fees. In order to avoid breaking the bank, here are three approaches to safely terminate your lease ahead of time.

1. Use a lease swap website to make your vehicle available to the general public

There's a reason why third-party providers like Swap A Lease exist on the internet. These facilitators match people who are looking to get out of their lease with consumers who want to take them on. There is limited maintenance for you.

All you have to do is enter the details and sit back to see if any offers come your way. It's legal, safe, and one of the most popular ways to end a lease prematurely.

2. Trade your current lease in for a new model

Let's say you simply don't like your vehicle and that is the primary reason why you "want out" of the lease. For example, if you're in the second year of leasing a coupe and you have a baby on the way, exchange your current agreement for a more family-friendly vehicle.

It's surprising that so many people think they are "stuck" with one car when they really aren't. Bring your car in and talk with a member of the staff at the dealership who can walk you through your options.

3. Transfer the lease to someone you know who is in the market for a vehicle

If you are going through a change in lifestyle or financial status, those who are closest to you ought to know about it. Talk with family members or close friends who need a vehicle to create a mutually beneficial situation.

You want to get out of your lease. They want to lease a car. It's a perfect match and it saves you the hassle of going back to the dealership or trying to find a third party on your own.

That's really all there is to it. Three simple ways to alleviate the stress of holding onto a lease that you don't want anymore.
