Fixed rate loans have guaranteed interest rates, which means your budget won’t be impacted by fluctuations in the market. So if you like Queensland Country Credit Union’s competitive rates, then one of its car loans could be for you.
Like many fixed rate products out there, these loans don’t have a redraw facility to dip into extra repayments. On the plus side, you can pay off your debt early without being charged a penalty fee. Sound like your match? Read on to find out next whether you should opt for the secured or unsecured version...
Secured loans have lower interest rates, so if you want to pay less in interest and don’t mind signing extra paperwork, then go for it! Keep in mind, it will cast a smaller net on the car you can buy though, as you’ll be looking at vehicles aged under 3 years only. If you’d rather own an older vehicle (with a price tag of up to $20k), pick the Queensland Country Credit Union unsecured loan instead.
A few factors come into this, like what you earn and your history of handling credit. With Queensland Country Credit Union, secured loans can range from $1k to $50k. If you want to borrow more than that, have a chat with them and they may agree to lend you more, on a loan term of 5+ years. When it comes to unsecured car loans, you can only borrow up to $20k.
Weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Choose a frequency that will match your budget nicely.
From 1 to 7 years with a secured loan, and up to 5 if your loan is unsecured. Don’t let these numbers slow you down, as you can always repay your debt early without incurring a penalty fee.
That’s right, you can make as many extra repayments as you like! Just be careful not to bite off more than you can chew. After all, you won’t have access to the funds via a redraw facility.
Yep, another nifty thing about Queensland Country Credit Union car loans, is that you don’t get penalised in fees for wiping off your debt earlier than required.

Absolutely, you can even finance a car under 3 years old using its new car loan. Older vehicles must be purchased with an unsecured loan instead.
You may be charged a late payment fee. But the stakes are higher if you miss too many. You could tarnish your credit rep, default on the loan, and your car could even get repossessed (with secured loans). Avoid this happening by setting up direct payments from a bank account that gets topped up regularly, so you can “set and forget”. If it so happens that you begin to experience financial hardship while paying off your loan, let Queensland Country Credit Union know ASAP.
Simple really. You can apply online, over the phone, or at a branch. To give you every chance of car loan approval, have the following things ready to supply Queensland Country Credit Union:
