Frequently asked questions
Who can apply for a graduate car loan?
If you’re a medical student (excluding dental, veterinary and other allied health professions) who is close to graduating and you have a confirmed placement at an Australian hospital next year, you’re eligible. And no, you don’t need a parent as guarantor.
Can I apply online?
To make it simple, we start the application over the phone. The right paperwork is then emailed to you, for you to complete.
What's a balloon payment and what should I know about it?
When loan repayments are structured with one larger final payment due at the end of the loan term, this is referred to as balloon payment.
This can reduce the monthly payment amount during the loan, because you are paying less off the loan at a slower pace. However you will still need to make the final payment at the end of the loan term. And the total interest charges are higher when loans are structured with a larger balance at the end, compared to making higher monthly repayments that reduce the loan balance quicker.
You are liable to pay the balloon, no matter how much the cars. value is at the of the loan term. So it’s always worth considering your options and understanding the risk of still owing an amount of money on an asset, at the end of your loan term.
