Get a lower interest rate by offering your purchase as security.


NOW Finance offers the choice of secured personal loan or unsecured loans. A secured loan means putting up a vehicle, boat or caravan as security. In return, we reduce the interest rate for our secured personal loans by 1% to 2.5% compared to a similar unsecured loan, and offer higher loan amounts for secured loans.

Secured loans can be used to purchase a car, boat, caravan, motorhome, motorbike or for any other worthwhile purpose, like improving your home for example. You can use an eligible asset you already own as security, or, the asset you are purchasing with your loan.

*ABOUT COMPARISON RATES:

The Comparison Rate is designed to help you understand the overall cost of the personal loan. It combines the amount of the loan, loan term, repayment frequency, interest rate, fees and charges into a single rate to show the total true cost of the loan. The comparison rates for the NOW Finance loans are based on a loan of $30,000 over 5 years. WARNING: The comparison rates given are true only for the examples given and may not include all fees and charges. Different terms, fees or other loan amounts might result in a different comparison rate. NOW Finance does not charge any fees therefore the true cost of the loan or Comparison Rate will always equal the interest rate quoted.

EXAMPLE:

An unsecured personal loan of $30,000 borrowed for 5 years with the interest rate of 5.95% p.a. (5.95% p.a. comparison rate), would estimate to a minimum total amount payable of $34,686.60 via the weekly payment option. Rates are subject to change.

^CONFIRMED RATE:

Our confirmed guaranteed personalised rate may change if you provide NOW Finance with incorrect personal information or security details. In some circumstances, NOW Finance may require further information from you in order to provide you with your guaranteed personalised rate.
