What is an Interest Only Loan?

Some lenders allow you to switch from paying back both the principal and interest on a loan to just paying the interest for a limited period of time. This can help to reduce your loan’s repayments so they’re more affordable in the short term. However, it also means you won’t be reducing the debt you owe, so it may ultimately take longer for you to fully pay off your loan.


^Words such as "top", "best", "cheapest" or "lowest" are not a recommendation or rating of products. This page compares a range of products from selected providers and not all products or providers are included in the comparison. There is no such thing as a 'one- size-fits-all' financial product. The best loan, credit card, superannuation account or bank account for you might not be the best choice for someone else. Before selecting any financial product you should read the fine print carefully, including the product disclosure statement, fact sheet or terms and conditions document and obtain professional financial advice on whether a product is right for you and your finances.
