Frequently Asked Questions
Why am i getting car loan quotes first?
We strongly believe in securing a better loan deal and locking in your approval first. This shows you as an approved buyer to bidding dealerships for your new car afterwards and draws better price results from them knowing you’re a serious buyer
What happens once I have selected the best deal?
Your contact details will be sent to the lender and/or car dealer to finalise the loan application or car purchase.
What’s the cost?
There are two options. Our recommended package is free if you opt to lock in your car loan approval first with a better car loan deal via our platform (it also shows dealers you’re a serious buyer) and gets you better car deals too! If you want to go straight to car deals without a finance approval, the upfront cost is $47.
