* 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.

FAQs about RAA Personal Loans

Why are their different interest rate tiers on RAA loans? 

RAA has a tiered interest rate structure which changes depending on how much money you are borrowing. The more money you borrow the lower your interest rate.

Also, if you are a member of the RAA you’ll get a 1% rate discount from non-member rates.

Are all RAA loans secured?  

If you’re borrowing money for a new car, you can secure the car against the loan. With secured loans you’ll have a lower interest rate.

If you don’t want to secure your loan you can take out an unsecured loan with RAA but the interest rate will be higher.

Can I choose between a fixed rate or variable interest rate?

No, the RAA only offers fixed rate loans. The benefit of a fixed rate loan is that it allows you to budget accordingly, knowing that your loan repayments stay the same month to month.

With RAA you can make extra repayments but if you want to pay out your loan early, you might have to pay an early repayment penalty.

How much can I borrow?

The amount of money you’ll be able to borrow will depend on your financial circumstances. RAA has loans from as little as $8000 up to $100,000.

What discounts do RAA members get?

One of the biggest benefits is that you’ll get a 1% discount off the standard variable rate. In addition to this you’ll also get a $100 discount off the loan establishment fee.

How often do I need to make a repayment?

You can set up your loan repayments to suit you. RAA offers a choice between weekly, fortnightly and monthly repayments.

You can also choose your loan term, which is between 1 - 7 years.

Will I have to pay an ongoing fee?

No, RAA loans don’t have ongoing fees, so all of your loan repayments go towards paying back your loan.

There are some other fees like a late payment fee or a fee if you pay out the loan early so it’s a good idea to set up automatic repayments and choose a loan term that will work best with your household budget.  

How long does it take to get approved?  

If you satisfy all the conditions you could be approved within a business day.
