What personal loans does Latitude offer? 

Personal Loan 

With a Latitude personal loan you can borrow money for just about any personal reason such as a wedding, holiday, home reno or buying that dream Winnebago. If you have an asset to secure the loan against, you will be offered a secured loan. Unsecured loans are also available but the interest rate you’ll be required to pay is higher than a secured loan.

On all Latitude personal loans we compare on Mozo, you’ll get a fixed interest rate for the loan term. This can be great to help with budgeting payments month to month but it can mean that if interest rates drop over your loan term that you won’t get the benefit of lower repayments, which you would get with a loan on a variable interest rate.

Like most personal loans you’ll be up for a loan establishment fee. Monthly fees are also payable for the duration of the loan. As you’ll be on a fixed interest rate with a Latitude personal loan, if you decide to pay out your loan early you will be up for some early exit fees. The amount you’ll pay will depend on how much time is left on the loan. This is why it is a really good idea when first considering to take out a loan you choose a loan term that will enable you to pay off the loan in the quickest time possible for your budget. 

Car Loan 

Latitude also offers two car loan options: one for vehicles under 3 years old and vehicles above 3 years old. The features and fees are very similar, with fixed rates available and the same loan terms. However, the loan minimum is slightly higher and the fees are a bit different (with the application fee a bit higher and the monthly fee a tad lower than the personal loan offering).

Dissapointing

Rude customer service. Bombarded you with information, and a lot of it is hidden in contracts. They won't give you the information you need, simply refer you back to the loan documents later. From $276 i pay a month, only about $40 goes to the loan (Remainder is interest). They charge $1.50 per transaction when you try and pay early. When i stated I would go to the ombudsman for being penalized in relation to making additional payments - was advised to "go right ahead, its in your contracts" - they fail to advise you anything else at the time you ask questions. I was also cut off from emailing " If you need anything else jump on the support page or call". Avoid at all costs, and speak to financial planners prior to accepting any loans with these guys

Latitude Secured Personal Loan review
Overall 1/10
Discrimination at its best.

I applied for a small personal loan through Latitude. I was refused because I do not have a full time job, I am a pensioner. Having a veterans tpi pension, a service pension and my superannuation, owning all my vehicles and house, that was not enough. Don't know what else to write. Never been knocked back before.

05/08 Paid out & closed card - 12/10 still open

I paid out my card on the 27/09/2020. On the 05/08/2020 someone emailed me and advised that my account was closed. I currently have a home loan on a tight deadline being processed and have found out today that it has been delayed due to this card (debt) still being open. Phoned two people today - one told me it was closed as of 05/08/2020 - the other told me it was still open, closed it and told me I would get a reference code text message in one hour so that I could print off a closure letter. One hour later, call centre now closed and no text or closure letter, which I needed to send onto the bank to prevent my loan and house settlement being delayed any further. Pretty disappointed that Latitude continued to keep this debt open when I gave them specific instructions to close it twice and have no faith in their customer service, considering I have had three employees, who have all given me completely different answers RE my account being closed. It’s like no one knows what’s going on at their end - which is scary when it’s our credit rating on the line!! Will never be going with Latitude again!!
