How much you repay depends on the amount you borrow and your interest rate depends on the age of the car you wish to purchase. To avail of Car Loan rates, the car you wish to purchase must be registered no more than seven years prior to the current year. If your dream car is more than seven years old you can avail of our competitive Personal Loan rates.

*Interest rates reflect loan amount required, try our calculator to show rates and repayments that reflect what you need or view our list of Competitive Rates with example amounts. Our Home Improvement Loans have a variable rate which means that the rate, and your loan repayments, can go up or down during the term of your loan. APR stands for Annual Percentage Rate.

Warning: If you do not meet the repayments on your loan, your account will go into arrears. This may affect your credit rating, which may limit your ability to access credit, a hire- purchase agreement, a consumer-hire agreement or a BNPL agreement in the future.
