Can I offer my car as security against my car loan?
Yes. If the vehicle you’re purchasing is twelve years old or less at the end of the loan term. See the Car Loans page for more information.
If the car is more than twelve years old at the end of the loan term you still may be eligible to apply for a secured car loan. Please call us on 13 11 75 to discuss your options.
Can I refinance my existing loan from another bank?
You can refinance an existing secured car loan, and retain the use of your car as security - so long as the car is twelve years old or less at the end of the loan term. Call us on 13 11 75 to discuss your options.
Can I use a guarantor on my personal loan?
No. We do not currently accept guarantors for personal loans.

Hints & Tips
What we look for:
- That you have a history of savings.
- That you have a history of managing repayments.
- Your overall financial position.
What you can do:
The smartest way of approaching a Personal Loan application is to do so knowing how much you can afford to borrow. Though our team of Lending Specialists will make sure the amount you’re borrowing matches your capabilities, you put yourself in better stead for approval if you aim to borrow comfortably and realistically.
Some tips on improving your eligibility:
Try going for a period of not withdrawing the money that you put into your savings. This will show us you’re committed to making payments.
Borrow towards your capabilities. For example, if $20,000 is just beyond your repayment comfort-zone, trying saving $5000, and then apply for a more manageable $15,000 loan.
Always keep and file documents that can act in support of your loan request.
- Know your liabilities, and their balances.
- Keep track of all sources of income, no matter how small.
- Know the value of your assets.
