Personal or business finance? 
Business finance (hire purchase, chattel mortgage or lease) is available to both company & individuals, providing the goods are to be used predominantly for business use, ie more than 50% business usage. For example, taxi drivers, mobile sales reps, couriers, etc could qualify for lease or hire purchase. A school teacher driving to & from work would not qualify. Call Medibank International or speak to your tax adviser. Business finance is usually lower interest rates, and there are many structures available to maximise your budget or tax benefits.

How long does it take to get approved? 
Usually just a few hours, however complex or difficult applications can take a few days. Once approved original finance documents must be signed and the supplier will be paid directly usually within 1-2 days.

Can I get my finance approved before purchasing? 
Yes, providing you can give us an idea of what you’re intending to purchase. Getting pre-purchase approval before you go shopping is a good idea, allowing bargaining power on the showroom floor. Medibank International needs to assess the total amount of finance against the current market value of the item. We must also approve your supplier, as there are many fraudulent vendors in the market place.

Medibank International considers things such as: have you ever filed for bankruptcy, do you own a home, how much is your current income, how long have you been employed at your current job, how long have you lived at your current address, do you have a credit rating, what is your net worth, and so on. The financial officer will then apply some maths to ascertain your credit status, determine the security over the loan, your current debt level, your income, and your ability to repay the debt. From this Medibank International will determine how much money you can borrow. You can do the sums yourself to determine your monthly budget. Simply deduct your expenses from your after-tax earnings.

Are your interest rates competitive?
Medibank International will consistently monitor current interest rates to maintain and offer the most competitive deals in Australia. We challenge you to try & find a better deal. Medibank International will help you beat those banks. However, the interest rate offered may vary by several per cent depending on whether you are a high or low-risk borrower. Contact Medibank International and get a quote now, then compare us with the banks using the comparison rate schedule.

I’ve got a bad credit rating?
Medibank International will always provide you with the most competitive offers it has available, however those with high risk, bad credit ratings or ex-bankrupts may try the 2nd chance product available. This 2nd chance option is more lenient & lax in relation to approval, however is generally a higher interest rate to cover the higher risk.

Can I buy a car privately? Can I buy from a dealer?
Dealer, auction, private sale and re-finance are welcome. Some used vehicles may require a vehicle inspection prior to payment – please discuss with our staff prior to purchase. Call Medibank International before buying your new car – we have access to huge discounts on most new cars.

Do I need to provide anything with my application?

When do I make my first payment? Can I make extra payments?

Business finance applicants have the first monthly repayment due on the day of settlement. Remaining payments are deducted from your nominated bank account.
