All of our charges will be easy to understand and clearly communicated to you. Our fees are listed in the tables below.
Vehicle Loan Interest Rates
Borrowing directly with us
When you borrow through us, your individual interest rate is predominantly based on your credit score. This is a number that provides a prediction of your credit worthiness, which is determined largely by your history of repaying your debts and bills on time and your current likelihood of being able to repay the loan that you are applying for. Credit bureaus collect and assess this information from lenders and other credit providers.
You are likely to improve your credit rating by continuing to repay your loans and other payments on time. If you establish a good repayment track record with us, you are more likely to get a low interest rate the next time that you borrow money from us.
If we have to charge you any of the following fees, we'll add them to the principal balance of your loan. This means we'll charge interest on these fees until you pay them.

1. A fixed administration fee to cover the cost of settling your loan
