Vehicle Refinance

Making Vehicle Finance work for you.

Refinancing is the process of taking out a new finance agreement to pay off the existing and outstanding balance on a car finance agreement.

Refinance is simple, you can take a new finance deal on terms that are better suited to your current needs. This might be a lower interest rate or a longer term to keep your monthly payments down. You might also want to take out a loan to pay off the final balloon payment on a PCP deal enabling you to keep your current car.

TYPES OF VEHICLE REFINANCE

There are two ways to refinance your car deal, refinance the whole deal or refinance a balloon payment.

 

Refinance the whole deal

It is possible to refinance your finance agreement by taking out a new finance deal– usually with a new lender – to pay the balance of your existing car finance loan.

There are a number of reasons why you may choose to vehicle refinance, for example; if your circumstances have changed, you may be eligible for a better deal, and re-arranging your finance deal could reduce your monthly costs.

Or, you may have signed up for a finance deal with your car dealership without realising that you could have sourced your own finance from a third party. By shopping around for a new finance agreement, you could secure a lower interest rate, and lower your costs.

It’s important to remember that refinancing your car agreement in this way could increase the period of time that you are paying for your car.

Balloon Refinance

If you have previously purchased a car on a PCP and you are coming to the end of your agreement, you’ll likely have a final balloon payment due.

At this stage you will have a number of options; hand the car back and take a new deal/car or pay the balloon payment and keep the car.

If you decide to keep the car because you really like it, or because you’d you are unable to find another car to replace it in the correct time frame, then vehicle refinance could be the best solution for you. You can take out a new finance agreement to spread the one-off balloon payment down into more manageable monthly repayments, allowing you to keep the car you love.

Remember, refinancing your car agreement in this way will increase the period of time that you are paying for your car, and you may end up paying more than if you’d paid the balloon off in one go.

IMPORTANT POINTS ABOUT VEHICLE REFINANCE

  • Make sure you take note of the total amount payable on the loan. If you’ve chosen lower monthly payments but a longer loan term, then you could end up paying back more overall.
  • Effect on your credit score. Taking on new debt may reduce your credit score slightly, but because refinancing replaces an existing loan with another of roughly the same amount or lower, its impact on your credit score should be minimal.
