How important is your credit rating?

Your credit rating (or score) influences the likelihood of you obtaining a personal loan. It also impacts the loan amount and interest rate you could be offered.

Think of it like this. The lower a person’s credit rating (or score) is, generally means that person is considered more of a risk to lend to, so they could be knocked back, or offered a smaller amount and/or a higher interest rate.

Below is a simple guide that looks at credit ratings for New Customers. It shows what you could expect in terms of interest rate and loan amount. (It is only a guide because it does not look at your affordability). For more information about our loyalty discounts check out our Mates Rates page.
