How does car finance work?

You borrow the money to buy a car of your choice. We’ll pay the dealer directly when you’ve agreed all the details, so you don’t need to worry about the upfront cost. If you’re refinancing an existing agreement, we’ll pay the provider on your behalf and switch your finance to us.

How is car finance different to a loan?

With a loan, money is sent to your current account and you pay the dealer, seller or current finance provider yourself. You can choose the amount and term you want to borrow the money over. You’ll own the car as soon as you pay the dealer/seller.

With car finance, the money’s sent directly to the dealer, or the company you have your existing agreement with, rather than your current account. You can’t borrow more than you need for the car or finance settlement amount. You don’t own the car until you’ve finished repaying the finance.
