What you'll get

  • Funds for buying a new or used car, or;
  • Funds to refinance a car loan you’ve taken out with another lender

  • A structured repayment schedule with a fixed interest rate and defined end date
  • Choice of weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayments
  • Fast answer on conditional approval
  • Option of Electronic Funds Transfer direct to seller on final approval.

Considerations

  • There are conditions on the car you’re buying or refinancing for this loan (the car’s age, whether you have comprehensive insurance etc.^^)
  • There’s no redraw facility available, unlike our variable rate Unsecured Personal Loan
  • Early repayment fee of $150 if you fully repay the loan within the first 12 months, or $100 if you fully repay the loan after the first 12 months and before the end of the loan term
  • Other fees and charges may apply#.

Before you continue

A final check that this is the right credit option for you. Personal loans can be a good way to secure a lump sum of money for a specific need. However, there are instances where it’s worth considering another form of credit:
  • You need a payment tool to access funds for everyday purchases on an ongoing basis. In this case, view our Credit Cards
  • You need ongoing access to credit to help with short-term cashflow, but don’t want a credit card. In this case, view our Overdraft
  • You’re doing home renovations that will cost more than $50,000. In this case look at building or renovating options.
