Why choose an unsecured personal car loan

  • You don’t need to use the car as security on the loan
  • No balloon payments unlike traditional car finance
  • You can borrow more than the car is worth, so you can add for car improvements, registration fees or even consolidate debts at the same time
  • You can borrow for that vehicle that is a little different, is too old or does not qualify for a traditional car loan or secured personal loan... perfect for a collectors car!
  • Can be used for a new or used car

Frequently Asked Questions

Things to consider before getting a personal car loan.

Eligibility criteria for personal car loans

If you’re thinking of applying for a personal car loan from SocietyOne, you will just need to meet our simple credit criteria to be eligible:

  • You need to be at least 18 years of age
  • Be an Australian citizen or a permanent resident of Australia
  • You must earn more than $30,000 per annum, with Centrelink considered to be a supplementary form of income
  • It’s important that you have a good credit score

What will I need to get a personal loan?

You may need to supply us with the following 
information and documents as part of your personal 
loan application:

  • Your personal details – name, address, date of birth
  • A driver’s licence or passport
  • Proof of your address - for example, a utility bill
  • Proof of your income in the form of payslips or bank statements
  • Details about your day-to-day expenses, and any other debts

What is a secured car loan?

A secure car loan is one in which the purchase of a vehicle serves as collateral for the loan. If a borrower defaults on a loan, the lender has the right to repossess the vehicle. The revenues from the transaction are intended to pay the remaining debt.

Do we offer balloon payments?

No, we do not charge balloon payments at SocietyOne.

Some car loans allow you to make a 'balloon payment' (also known as a residual payment), which means you pay a portion of the loan in regular instalments and the rest in one big sum. It's likely to be an excellent deal, as your monthly payment will most likely be lower. However, because you'll have to repay the lump payment plus interest, the total cost of the car loan will be higher.

What is the process of applying for a personal car loan?

  1. Get your rate: In as little as 1 minute we'll give you an interest rate and comparison rate based on your credit history.
  2. Apply online: Most people finish their application within 5 minutes (and it's easier to do if you're enjoying your morning coffee).
  3. Get paid: Once approved, we'll have the loan funds in your account in as little as 1 business day.

Will a credit check be made when I apply for a personal car loan?

Yes, we use this and assess your financial situation to calculate your interest rate & reward borrowers who have maintained good credit scores. Receiving a rate quote from us will not impact your credit score. We use what is called a 'soft call' to get your credit score from the credit bureau which allows us to calculate a personalised rate for you. However, once you have submitted your loan application, we will conduct a credit check as part of our assessment process. This check is known as a 'hard call' and will be reflected in your credit score.

How much can I borrow, and for how long?

SocietyOne's unsecured personal loans range from $5,000 to $50,000 with flexible loan terms of 2, 3 or 5 years.
