Caravan loan FAQs

It’s normal to take your time deciding which loan is right for you. If you have any questions, call us on 133 282 for a chat.

What is a personalised interest rate?

A personalised interest rate is an interest rate based on an assessment of your credit score. If you have an excellent credit score and a good history of repaying loans, credit cards and other bills, you’ll likely be offered a lower interest rate.

When you apply for a personal loan, your individual situation and credit score will be considered when calculating your personalised interest rate.

What is a comparison rate?

A comparison rate is the interest rate, plus additional fees and charges you will be expected to pay over the loan term. As comparison rates indicate the true cost of a loan, they make it easier to decide which is best for you.

Fixed rate loan

A fixed rate loan means the interest rate stays the same throughout the loan term. You’ll have the same repayment amount each month and it’s great if you want repayment certainty and stability in your budget.
