The duration of repayments on your new car loan varies based on the loan amount and your individual financial situation. Once you complete our "Free Financial Assessment" form, a dedicated finance professional will discuss the best options tailored specifically for you, providing clarity on repayment terms. Generally car loans range from 2 to 7 years and for new cars, you should expect the loan term to be from 5 to 7 years.
It's not necessary to find a new car before applying with Rapid Finance. In fact, knowing your loan approval status and borrowing capacity can be beneficial when shopping around. Additionally, with our Wholesale Car Network Option, we can assist you in finding the perfect vehicle after your loan is approved, offering savings and free vehicle checks.
The decision to buy a new or used car depends on personal preferences, needs, and financial circumstances. New cars often come with the latest features, warranties, and can be financed at competitive rates. Used cars, on the other hand, can be more affordable upfront and might have slower depreciation after purchase. Rapid Finance can assist with loans for both new and used cars, depending on your preference.

Interest rates can vary based on the type of vehicle, its age, and individual financial circumstances. Typically, new cars may have competitive interest rates due to their lower risk profile (newer cars often have fewer issues and retain their value longer). However, Rapid Finance works with a large lending panel, ensuring we find competitive rates for both new and used vehicles based on your unique situation - even if you have a bad credit history.
Rapid Finance doesn't have a strict "minimum credit score" for financing a new car. You could get finance even with a bad credit score. We assess each application on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the entire financial picture of the applicant. Even if you've had credit challenges in the past, we specialise in finding finance solutions. Additionally, we offer a free credit check report without impacting your credit file, helping you understand and potentially improve your credit situation.
