Star Ratings


CANSTAR star ratings are a consumer-friendly benchmark that help you compare financial products based on their rates and features. They evaluate literally thousands of products from hundreds of finance institutions. Products offering superior value are awarded five stars.

Only the top 5-10% of products scored using the CANSTAR star ratings methodology are awarded the prestigious five star status. As a consumer, this is great start towards finding yourself a high-performance product.

The rising star status is given to products which do not meet the criteria for being rated (perhaps they have only been on the market for six months), but show potential to score highly in the near future.

This is an information service. By browsing on the website and/or using our search tools, you are asking RateCity to provide you with information about products from multiple financial institutions. We will try to show you a range of products in response to your request for information. The search results do not include all providers and may not compare all features relevant to you, for further details refer to our FSCG. The rating shown is only one factor to take into account when considering these products. See the rating methodology. We are not a credit provider, and in giving you product information we are not making any suggestion or recommendation to you about a particular credit product. If you decide to apply for a product, you will deal directly with a financial institution, and not with RateCity. Rates and product information should be confirmed with the relevant financial institution, and you should review the PDS before you decide to purchase. See our terms of use for further details.
