An Aussie car loan can help you buy your dream car or even the car that you need to travel from one place to another. It's a flexible loan and can be used to buy a new or used caravan, trailer, motorcycle, scooter or boat, and the application can be completed in 15 minutes.

The Aussie Car Loan is a flexible financing option for your next new or used car. You can even bundle your loan with other debts to consolidate and pay them off in one neat package. It is an unsecured loan so your assets are not used for security if you default on the loan, while the fixed rate means your repayments are set for the whole loan term.
Once you have bought your car it's possible to get your comprehensive car insurance through Aussie as well.

Features of the Aussie Car loan

As mentioned, the Aussie Car loan is comparatively flexible compared to other car loans. Here's what you can expect from this loan.

  • Loan amount. The minimum amount of loan offered by Aussie Car Loans is $3,000 and the maximum amount that you can borrow depends on your income and ability to manage your repayments.
  • Loan term. The term of loan can range from 1 year(s) to 7 year(s), giving you the ability to decide on a term that suits you.
  • Flexible repayments. Repayments can be made weekly, fortnightly or monthly by direct debit. This gives you the ability to tailor repayments to what suits your budget.
  • Interest rate. This loan features a competitive fixed rate, currently 12.99% p.a. for the life of the loan.
  • Optional extras. The Aussie Car Loan gives you some options which you can use to make your loan suit you better. If you happen to run into extra money, for example, you can put this towards your loan as a lump sum payment. You may also be able to increase your loan amount, although this is subject to Aussie's lending criteria.

Fees and charges

  • Establishment fee. An establishment fee of $199 is charged for this loan. This amount needs to be paid only once at the time when the loan amount is received.
  • Monthly administration fee. An administration fee of $10 applies and needs to be paid every month.
  • Early termination fee. If you decide to pay your loan earlier than the fixed term or you want to prepay your loan, you'll need to pay an early termination fee. The amount depends on how much you still owe and the time left your term.

      Hi Dravamp,

      Aussie may consider you for a loan if you’re “currently earning a salary with an annual gross income of more than $24,000 or in regular paid employment where you earn an annual gross income of more than $24,000″. If you meet this criteria, as well as the criteria outlined above, then you can apply.

      I hope this has helped.

    I have been previously bankrupt in 2007. I have been self employed as a Taxi driver for the past ten years and have a $4000 deposit for a 2014 Hyundai I20 selling at $12990. Do you think I will get approved for a loan?

      Hi Daryn,

      If your bankruptcy is no longer listed on your credit file you may be eligible for a loan, but you will need to get in contact with Aussie to confirm your eligibility. You can also read our guide on borrowing as a current and discharged bankrupt on this page.

      I hope this has helped.

    I’m on single parenting payments and also am casually employed with guaranteed amount of hours per fortnight, would I be eligible for a car loan ?

      Hi Skye,

      Thanks for your question.

      In order to be eligible for this loan you need to be in consistent paid employment and be earning over $24,000 per year. You can’t be in probation in your role, you can’t have any defaults on loans or credit cards within the last five years and you can’t have filed for bankruptcy within the last seven years.

      If you meet this criteria you will be eligible to apply and Aussie will determine your ability to repay your loan when deciding whether to approve you.

      I hope this has helped.

      Hi Syed,

      Thanks for your comment. From what I understand 489 Visas are handled on a case by case matter.

      Please get in touch with a lender directly to discuss eligibility.

    Hi there, I’m a casual employee and I applied for a $16, 000 loan with another finance company and I’ve been approved for $15, 000 n they say I can’t get the car I really want (Toyota aurion 2008) coz its “2 high risk” & I MUST get a 2012 car n it has 2 be bought from a dealership. . I’m not 2 sure if I should take the offer but im scared of not getting approved somewhere else.. I’ve read through ur site n u’s seem more trust worthy n more flexible 2 my needs & I want 2 go with Aussie.. if I apply with u’s, will this be bad for my record thing?

      Hi Matt,

      Thanks for your question.

      It depends on when you applied for your last car loan. As a general rule of thumb, you should wait about 3-6 months before you apply for another one.

      Please note that if you refuse this current offer, there is the risk that Aussie may not offer you the loan amount that you’d like or accept your application. You might want to get in touch with them directly to discuss your options.
