* The Comparison Rate combines the lender's interest rate, fees and charges into a single rate to show the true cost of a personal loan. The comparison rates displayed are for the amounts and terms quoted, based on monthly principal and interest repayments, on a secured basis for secured loans and an unsecured basis for unsecured loans, and apply only to these examples. Different amounts and terms will result in different comparison rates. Full comparison rate schedules are available from lenders. Costs such as redraw fees or early repayment fees, and savings such as fee waivers, are not included in the comparison rate but may influence the cost of the loan.

Arab Bank Australia car loan FAQs

Should I go for a fixed or variable interest rate?

Good question, as it really depends on how you intend to use your loan and if you are happy with the rate attached. For instance, say you want to lock your interest rate in for the entire loan term, then you would select the fixed rate option as you’ll know exactly what your repayments will look like. But if you don’t mind the possibility of a future rate change up or down, go for a variable rate car loan. That way, if you decide to repay your debt early, you won’t get stung by a penalty fee.

Should I secure my car to the loan?

If you can secure your car to the loan, you’ll receive a lower interest rate. Arab Bank can also accept property as security, so be sure to check out your options with them if you’re after a secured loan to buy a preloved car. Prefer a no fuss loan with less paperwork? Go for an unsecured loan and pay a little more interest in return.

How much can I borrow?

Every loan applicant has different financial circumstances, so it’s hard to give a definitive answer. But if you’re eligible, the price tag of your car can range from $5k to $50k. Looking for more credit than that? Return to our car loans hub and browse through other options in the market.

How frequently will I need to make repayments?
