Last updated:


Having your own car, whether for business or personal use, comes with huge benefits, and is a necessity for many people in a range of living situations. With NAB, you can now realise your dream of owning your own car by opting for an Unsecured Personal Loan. As the loan is unsecured this loan may be suitable whether you are planning on purchasing a brand new one or a secondhand vehicle.

Is your car eligible?

As the loan is unsecured you're able to finance a brand new or secondhand car with this loan. You can purchase a car from a dealership or a private sale, or you can even buy demonstrator vehicle. You may also be able to add on additional purchases to this loan, depending on how much you're approved for. Keep in mind you will need to note your loan purpose when you apply.

You can apply for between $5,000 and $55,000 so the car you're looking to buy needs to be valued between those amounts or you need to be looking to borrow that amount.
