Features of the NRMA Car Loan

This loan comes with a range of competitive features and benefits which are outlined below.

  • Interest rate. Having a fixed interest rate allows you to easily budget for your loan repayments with the same regular monthly payment amount. The fixed interest rate for this loan is 6.5% p.a.
  • Discounted interest rate. With an NRMA membership, you can take advantage of their exclusive member offer and get a discounted interest rate which means you can lower your repayments. The NRMA benefits save members 1% p.a. on the loan rate. However, this offer is only for loan values above $15,000 and is for new cars only. This rate is not applicable to the promotional rate of 6.5% p.a.
  • Loan terms. You can choose loan terms to help keep your repayments manageable – terms are available between 1 year(s) and .
  • Repayment flexibility. NRMA Car Loan offers a fairly flexible repayment term option. You can choose to pay either on a monthly basis or on a fortnightly basis and can make extra payments anytime.
  • Loan amounts. You can choose to borrow between $15,000 and $100,000
  • Pre-approval and quick turnaround. NRMA Car Loan offers you a five-hour pre-approval service which can give you a fast approval within five business hours. This provides you a better bargaining power with your car dealer to get the best deals possible by having the funds on standby. Once all the paperwork is completed by NRMA, your funds are made available to you by the next working day.

    Hi,

    We attempted to apply for a new car loan as a joint application but when you get to the section where it asks for your employment details it would only let us enter the details for 1 person. We had selected joint application and entered the personal details for each person but we couldn’t enter the employment details. We tried to then call but it was after 6pm. Is it possible to do the online application in joint names or will we have to call the call centre?

      Hi Kailie,

      You should be able to complete the joint application online if it gave you that option initially. However, as the application is handled by NRMA you’ll need to get in contact with them directly.

      Sorry I couldn’t be of more assistance,

      Elizabeth

    Hello,

    I noticed some similar questions from a while back but I would just like some updated clarification on some things.

    1. I see the comparison rate of 7.02% applies to a $30,000 loan over 5 years, how would the rate differ if it was 7 years and $35,000 for example?

    2. It mentions that as an NRMA member there is a 1% discount for the above example instead of 7.02% it would be 6.02%, right?

    3. I read in an earlier answer if the loan was paid fully three quarter is the term there would be a $200 or 2% fee which ever is higher, is this still the case? And would there be a fee for paying a larger amount for example $5000?

    Thanks.

      Hi Moses,

      Thanks for your questions.

      1) You can work out your repayments with our online personal loan calculator. Generally, over a longer period, there would be more fees associated with the loan and the total amount repaid would be higher with a lower comparison rate.

      2) Yes, NRMA do offer a discount for members, however the 1% discount would apply to the fixed rate of 6.5%, making the fixed rate 5.5%.

      3) Yes you are correct, if you pay the loan back in under 70% of the loan term then you would pay the $200 or a 2% fee on the remaining balance, whichever is higher. However, you are able to make early repayments with no charge, as long as you don’t pay the total loan back in under 70% of the loan term.

      Hope this helps,

      Elizabeth

      Hi Gav,

      Thanks for your question.

      Please note that finder.com.au is an online comparison service and is not in a position to recommend specific products, providers and services.

      Due to the nature of your credit history, you may find it difficult trying to find a lender who is willing to loan you such a large amount.

      You may want to look at our page, borrow up to $5,000 with bad credit instead.

      Cheers,
      Shirley

    I am looking to buy a 2001 Mercedes Benz S600 for $35,000. Originally the car cost over $400,000. Do you offer loans for this car ?

      Hi Murray,

      Thanks for your question.

      Please note that finder.com.au is an online comparison service and is not a product issuer. If you would like to discuss your eligibility or options, please get in touch with NRMA directly.

      Most lenders are willing to accept vehicles that are less than 5-7 years old as security for the loan. However, due to the high value of this vehicle NRMA may be able to consider this asset as an security.

      Cheers,
      Shirley

      Hi New Car Loan,

      Thanks for your question.

      This depends on the lender and their policy. Most lenders are willing to accept vehicles that are less than 5-7 years old as security for the loan.
