Receive great rates and pay no fees to use our service¹.

Save money with competitive interest rates from 6.95% p.a.² and pay no fees to use our service when the vehicle you purchase is used as security.

Use the vehicle you are purchasing as security to get a better interest rate and pay no fees to use our service.

Most motor vehicle dealers and finance brokers will charge you a fee to arrange finance on your behalf. This fee is commonly known as either a platform fee, broker fee, or referral fee.

When you arrange vehicle finance through Lending People and use the vehicle you are purchasing as security for the loan, you won't pay this fee, saving you up to $995*. Plus, because secured loans are less risky, you'll usually be offered a lower rate, so you'll save on interest too!


*Based on the typical maximum allowed by finance providers. A platform fee may still apply for unsecured vehicle finance.

Our digital platform will match you with the best possible terms and interest rates across a range of trusted lenders throughout NZ.

¹Fees: We do not charge a fee to use our service (commonly referred to as a platform fee, broker fee, or referral fee) if you are an existing customer or do not proceed with a credit contract. A fee to use our service of between $0.00 and $995 is applicable in all other cases.

²Annual Interest Rate (AIR): The AIR offered by our Personal Loan providers ranges from 6.95% p.a. to a maximum of 26.95% p.a.

³Annual Percentage Rate (APR): Also known as the 'comparison rate', the APR is calculated by adding together the AIR plus any additional fees that may apply (like establishment fees). New Zealand law does not require APR disclosure, but doing so can better highlight borrowing costs. The APR offered by our Personal Loan providers ranges from 7.80% p.a. to a maximum of 27.91% p.a. The APR is accurate only for the representative example given below and may not include all fees like early repayment fees (if any). Different terms, fees or other loan amounts might result in a different APR.

⁴Minimum and Maximum Repayment Terms: Repayment terms offered by our Personal Loan providers range from 12 months to a maximum of 84 months.

Representative Example of the Total Cost of a Loan: If you borrow $20,000 over a repayment term of 36 months at an AIR of 6.95% p.a., your total repayments will be $22,493 (made up of $20,000 principle, interest charges of $2,243, and an establishment fee of $250). This example assumes monthly repayments and does not include premiums for any optional insurances or fees for using our service (if any).

Terms and Conditions: All approvals are subject to provider credit criteria and responsible lending requirements. The loan amount and interest rate offered will depend on your circumstances, the type of lending required, and the security (if any) provided. Provider establishment fees, terms, and conditions apply.
