Understanding What You Can Afford

The calculators we provide allow you to understand how much you can afford to borrow for your new car. If you already know how much you next car is likely to cost, you can calculate your likely monthly payments by using our car loan calculator.

If you have a monthly budget in mind, then you can use the loan affordability calculator to understand what you should be able to afford to pay back each month. This is based on the salary you take home but you should also take into consideration any other commitments you may have such as personal loans.

If high interest rates are making your monthly repayments unaffordable, then you should visit our Credit Clinic to see how you might be able to improve your credit rating. There are a number of ways you can improve your Credit Rating and this will have a significant impact on the size of your monthly repayments.
