How do two-year fixed rate personal loans work?

When you apply for a fixed rate loan, the rate on your contract stays in place for the duration of the two-year term. At the end of the two years, a variable rate may come into effect (if this is how your contract is set up) or, more likely, your loan will be paid out.

Repayment schedules differ between lenders, but the options available are usually weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Fixed rate loans can be secured or unsecured and you can use them to pay for a car, a holiday, home renovations or even to consolidate debt.

What types of fixed-rate personal loans are available?

There are a few types of fixed-rate personal loans you can apply for, including:

  • Car loan
    Finance your new or used vehicle purchase and pay it off over a two-year period. As the loan is secured, you’ll find more competitive rates on offer.
  • Secured personal loan
    Besides a car, other high-value assets can be used a loan collateral – motorcycles, boats and even term deposits can be used as guarantees on a fixed rate loan. Find out more in our secured loans guide.
  • Unsecured personal loan
    If you need a flexible loan amount, want to finance a few purchases or you’re looking to consolidate debt, an unsecured fixed rate loan may be an option to consider.

How to compare your two-year fixed rate loan options

If you’re considering a fixed rate loan with a two-year term, the first step is comparing what options are available to you. Here are some features to keep in mind.

  • Interest rate. This rate will stay in place for two years, so make sure it’s competitive.
  • Fees. Is there an establishment fee? What about monthly or annual fees? These can add significantly to the cost of the loan over a two-year period.
  • Eligibility criteria. Are you eligible for the loan? This is one of the most important aspects to take into account. Check minimum age, employment and financial criteria.
