Applying? Don’t forget these additional expenses:

- Warrant of Fitness
- Vehicle Licensing
- Car Insurance
- Maintenance (e.g. tyres, brake discs, cleaning materials etc)

Need to borrow more? Increase how much you’ll be approved for by:
- Consolidating your debt
If you’re juggling a number of debts, it’s a good idea to combine them into a single loan. Having just the one repayment will make it easier to manage, and you’ll save money with a lower interest rate, too!
- Reducing your credit
Cut up one of your credit cards or lower your credit limit across all your cards. Remember, a potential lender takes into account your credit limits whether you spend up to your limit or not.
- Maintaining a good credit rating
Paying your bills on time or snowballing your debts are just a few ways to show you’re a responsible borrower and improve your credit rating. This increases your chances of borrowing at the best interest rate, and for the amount you want.
