What you need to consider about an Esanda Car Loan

This is a secured loan, meaning your newly purchased car will be used as a guarantee in case you default on the loan. Loan terms of between one and seven years are available and a balloon repayment may also be available, helping you to reduce your ongoing repayments over your term. Keep in mind various fees and charges apply, including an establishment fee and monthly loan administration charge. These fees are detailed further on and should be taken into account before you apply.

    When you apply, you can find out if you've been approved in three hours or less. This can make the process of buying your car quick and easy.
  • Flexible repayments options.
    You're able to make fortnightly or monthly repayments and you can pay via direct deposit, BPAY or by visiting an ANZ branch.
  • Fixed rate of interest.
    This loan comes with a competitive fixed rate starting from 7.91% p.a. The rate you're approved for will depend on your individual application.
  • Balloon repayment option.
    If you're looking to make a lump sum payment at the end of your loan term, with the advantage of reducing your ongoing repayments, you might be able to take up this option.
  • No deposit required.
    You may be able to access 100% financing for your vehicle if you're approved by Esanda.
  • Include other costs in your loan.
    Approved customers may be able to include other costs in their loan amount, including insurance and on-road costs.

What fees come with an Esanda Car Loan

Before taking on any loan it's important to take into account all of it's features, including what costs are involved. The fees and charges of this loan are outlined below:

  • Establishment fee: $350. This is the fee you're charged to cover the costs of setting up your loan.
  • Loan administration charge: Array. This is charged each month to cover the administrative costs of your loan.
  • Late payment fee: $20. If you fail to make a payment on time you will be charged this fee.

Ways Esanda can help you repay your loan

While the car loan is a fixed rate product, meaning there is little flexibility in the way your repayments are structured over your loan term, Esanda offers repayment flexibility in other ways. Take a look at the options available to you that can help you manage your loan:

Annual repayment breaks for rego and insurance

Esanda has an option whereby you can construct a repayment schedule to work around your registration and insurance renewal. In other words, you can have a repayment holiday scheduled for when your insurance and registration is due to be renewed if you agree to make higher repayments in other months. This can provide some much-needed relief when renewal time comes.

A break for repayments when you have a baby

If you and your partner are expecting, you can elect to increase your repayments for the first nine months in order to have reduced repayments for the next twelve. Following this period the repayments will return to normal for the remainder of the loan term. This is a very flexible option that can help you in that first year where you'll see your living costs increased with the new introduction to your family.

Repayments tailored for your car's maintenance

Another flexible repayment structure that's available aims to help you manage the maintenance costs of your vehicle. This repayment structure sees reduced repayments every six months, and then on the anniversary of your contract you won't have any repayments scheduled. This is where your servicing costs and registration will be due.

    I used Esanda in the past and completed my car loan successfuly. Now I’m thinking to use Esanda again. Will Esanda take my past experience in to account?

      Hi John,

      Your application will be judged on your current financial circumstances and you will still need to meet the minimum eligibility criteria. Esanda may have your records on file and if you’ve made all your repayments on time this may be taken into account, but you will only be approved for a loan if you meet its lending criteria.

      Hope this helped,

    If I go with fixed interest rate how much will be the early termination fee.

    Also is there maximum or minimum amounts for a additional payments.

    Thank you.

      Hi Lucky,

      The early termination fee is a $50 administration fee plus $680 pro-rate, which is for the unrecovered costs of providing the loan. For example, on a 60 month loan paid out after 48 months, there will be 12 months remaining of the original term so the fee payable will be 12/60 x $680 = $136. There may also be break costs.

      There aren’t limits for additional repayments but you may be charged fees which can be advised to you by Esanda.

      Hope this has helped,

      Hi Arti,

      Thanks for your question.

      There aren’t any terms or conditions listed with the establishment fee on Esanda’s site, so it looks like you will need to pay this fee even in your situation. You might want to get in contact with Esanda directly to discuss your application and the fee structure before you apply.

      Thanks for your question.

      You’ve come through to, as a financial comparison service we can’t comment on the outcome or status of your application. Once you apply Esanda gets in contact with you via email to discuss the nest steps of the application, then they call you to discuss a quote. If you’re approved you usually be advised of this within three business hours. You can call Esanda for further details regarding your application and loan.

      I hope this has helped.
