If you’re in need of a car upgrade quicksmart, Liberty can approve you for a loan in minutes. There’s a fairly high signup fee to begin with, but zero monthly fees to follow. The Liberty car loan has a variable rate, which means it can change at any point. With this loan you tie your vehicle to it as security and in return score a low, competitive rate. The car price tag can range from $5,000 to $100,000 and be repaid on a loan term of two to seven years (but if you are under 23, the max you can borrow is $35,000). Liberty is fine with you making extra loan repayments, just be mindful there is no redraw facility. If you decide to wipe off your debt early early, you may incur a small discharge fee.
Dubbed the “Personal Best” loan, this Liberty unsecured loan has similar features to a line of credit because you only pay interest on the money you use. Unlike the Liberty variable car loan it has a low fixed rate. The loan limit you set with Liberty can range from $5,000 to $50,000 on a term between one and seven years. You can opt in for a personal loan debit card for spending on-the-go, which can suit borrowers on holidays or those planning a wedding. Extra repayments are free and you can redraw from them too. There are no fees with Liberty’s personal best loan except for a signup cost.
Repayment dates can fall on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis.
Both Liberty loan types allow you to make extra repayments (but do keep in mind the car loan does not have a redraw facility and charges break fees).
Unlike some personal loans in the market, Liberty does not charge customers monthly fees with its personal loans.
For that extra piece of mind (if for some unforeseen circumstances you cannot meet loan repayments) Liberty has a loan protection insurance product.
