RACV car loans are available to borrowers throughout Australia, with members eligible for discounts. RACV makes decisions on car loan applications within five business hours. Car loans come with a 21-day loan satisfaction guarantee, which means that if borrowers repay their loan within three weeks, any interest and fees will be cancelled. RACV is primarily a motoring organisation, although it also operates in the home, leisure and travel, and retail sectors. RACV is owned by its members rather than shareholders. It was founded in 1903 and has more than 2,000 staff and more than 2.1 million members.

About RACV

The Royal Automobile Club of Victoria (RACV) was first established in Melbourne as a motorists’ social club in 1903. The club operated to encourage and develop the motoring industry and actively sought to protect the rights of motorists. Today, RACV continues to support its community and 1.9 million members through its car insurance products and the RACV Foundation.

RACV can be contacted online or by phone, or you can visit an RACV shop for a face to face meeting, with locations throughout Victoria’s metropolitan areas and regional centres.

Features of an RACV Car Loan

RACV is renowned for providing car insurance and roadside assistance, but it also offers finance for new and used car purchases. RACV car loans have no ongoing fees, which helps to ease their impact on your budget, both from month to month and over the full loan term.

RACV new car loans start from $15K, and used car loans from $25K. Both loan options have fixed interest rates, and are secured against the value of your vehicle. If you join RACV, or are already a member, you may be eligible for further benefits.

What RateCity says

Whether you’re looking at buying a new car or a used car, RACV’s car loans have lower-than-average interest rates compared to many other car loans on the market. When you also consider that these car loans have no ongoing fees to worry about, they can often prove to be affordable options, depending on your personal finances. It’s also possible to make extra repayments to pay more of the loan’s principal and reduce your total interest charges.

It’s also important to remember that RACV car loans require paying an upfront fee that’s higher than the market average. And if you make extra repayments and pay off your car loan early, an early exit fee will also apply. Finally, these car loans are secured by the value of your vehicle, so if you don’t keep up with your repayments, you’ll risk losing it.

Applying/eligibility

To apply for an RACV car loan, you’ll need to supply your personal details, employment details, assets, liabilities and income. According to RACV, approval can be completed in as little as 5 hours, and once you’ve signed the paperwork, you’ll have access to your finance within 24 hours.

FAQs

There are four different ways you can get a car loan. You can go straight to a lender. You can get a finance broker to organise a car loan for you. You can get ‘dealer finance’ – which is when the car dealer organises a car loan for you. Or you can organise your own car loan through a comparison website, like RateCity.

Whichever method you choose, you will need to provide proof of identification, proof of income and proof of savings. So you may be asked for any combination of passport, driver’s licence, bank statements, payslips, tax returns and utility bills. You might also be asked to provide proof of insurance.
