Borrow all or some of the amount required
If you sell your previous car, you can use the proceeds of that sale to cover part of the cost of buying your next car. You can then borrow the rest.
Would you rather not use the proceeds of your sale for this? Then you can also borrow the full amount of the purchase price (including VAT).
A fixed-rate car loan
The interest rate on your car loan never changes. That means you can be absolutely certain your monthly repayments will remain the same for the entire term of the loan.
When you take out your car loan, you also receive a schedule showing your monthly repayments during the full term of the loan. You can then see what you've already repaid any time you want.
Car loan calculator
If you know how much you need to borrow, you can easily work out your monthly repayments with our car loan calculator. The amount you repay each month depends on how much you want to borrow and the period over which you wish to repay the loan.
If you need help working out what period to repay the loan over, see our guide to choosing the best repayment plan for you.
What is the ideal term?
The best term for you depends on how much you want to borrow and how much you can afford to spare each month. The longer the term, the less you'll have to pay each month and the easier it will be to pay off the loan. The shorter the term of your loan, the more you'll have to pay each month, but you'll pay it off sooner and also end up paying less interest. At KBC, you choose what you prefer to do.
There are a few legal constraints that apply to the term of a loan (these are automatically built into the loan calculator).
|Up to 2,500||24|
|Up to 3,700||30|
|Up to 5,600||36|
|Up to 7,500||42|
|Up to 10,000||48|
|Up to 15,000||60
A new car quickly depreciates in value, so we recommend keeping the term of your loan as short as possible. As a novice driver, it's often the case that you haven't taken out any other loans, but you are more at risk statistically of damaging or writing off your vehicle in an accident. It's worth remembering that, while you've lost your car in this scenario, you will have to continue paying off your loan. You can, however, limit that risk by taking out comprehensive insurance at KBC.
Car loans and your tax return
When you declare your work-related expenses, you can claim the interest on your car loan against your tax.
When do you get your money?
Your car loan will be paid to you
- When your car is delivered
- After KBC receives the relevant signed documents and proof of investment (order form or invoice)
- By crediting the account from which your monthly repayments will be made
When do you start repaying your loan?
You start paying off your car loan one month after it is paid to you. All subsequent payments are made on the same day of the month on which you made the initial repayment.
Example illustrating when repayment is to be made
Suppose KBC makes your loan available to you on 25 March. You will then start repaying your loan on 25 April, with all subsequent repayments scheduled for the 25th of the month.
Account for repaying the loan
If you already have a current account at KBC, you can repay your loan from that account provided you're the sole or joint holder of the account.
The account for repaying the loan must be the same as the one into which the loan was paid.
If you don't have an account at KBC, you can also pay off your loan by direct debit from the account you hold at another financial institution.
