What is a car loan?
A car is one of the most important assets you can own. If you need a new vehicle but don’t have the funds to purchase it straight away, a car loan can help you cover the immediate cost. This enables you to not only purchase a car but drive it, as you repay your loan over a set period of time. As a form of personal finance, you can use a car loan to purchase brand new or used vehicles, depending on the financial provider.
Can I get a car loan online?
At Jacaranda, we offer free, no-fuss applications for online car loans. Anyone who meets our criteria can apply. To be eligible, you must be at least 18 years old and an Australian citizen (or permanent resident). You’ll also have to provide at least 90 days proof of income as well as your online banking details. That’s it! If you’re unsure which loan might be best for you, you can always turn to our loan specialists for advice.
Are your car loans secured?
Yes, they are! All of Jacaranda’s car loans are secured loans. This means you will need to provide some type of asset, such as a car or boat, to secure your loan. In some cases, you may be able to use the car you are purchasing as security against your loan.
Can I get a car loan with bad credit?
Yes, you can! At Jacaranda, we do our best to help all of our customers. We understand that bad credit can arise from a number of situations and believe this shouldn’t bar you from having access to finance when you need it. That’s why we look at a range of factors when assessing our loan applicants. As a result, you could be eligible for one of our bad credit car loans.
How long does it take to get an online car loan?
Our online car loans are designed to be as quick and easy as possible! The application process typically takes under 10 minutes to complete, especially if you have the required documents handy. Once submitted, you could receive an outcome shortly after applying (if you apply during AEST business hours). If approved, then you’ll just need to sign your loan contract electronically. As soon as we receive your signed contract, we’ll transfer the funds to your bank account. If your financial institution has NPP-enabled payments, the money could be in your account and ready to use within just 60 seconds!

Can I refinance my current car loan?
You sure can! If you have a car loan with us or you’re just looking to get a better deal on an existing loan, we may be able to help. For new customers, you can apply for refinance through our standard application form. Alternatively, if you’re an existing customer, get in touch with our team to see how we could help you.
Refinancing can be a great way to save money on interest and other fees attached to your contract. However, before you apply it’s important to do your research. To learn more about the pros and cons, check out our helpful guide on car loan refinance.
Do you offer used car loans?
Yes! We can provide used car loans up to $35,000, with loans terms of 1 to 5 years. Simply apply online through our standard application. The same requirements will apply as if you were getting a loan to purchase a new car. That means you will need to provide some type of collateral as part of your contract, since all of Jacaranda’s car loans are secured.
