APR stands for Annual Percentage Rate. The APR applicable determines the cost of credit when calculated for the advance and term of the loan. This cost will be clearly shown and explained in advance of any agreement being signed.
The cost of credit is the additional amount repaid over and above the amount initially borrowed. It includes the HP interest and any fees attaching and is paid as part of your monthly installment.
In your agreement the total HP interest will be shown separately along with any fees attaching.
Yes you can repay early and you never have to pay more than the balance outstanding (it could even be less!). This can facilitate early loan repayment or if you wish to upgrade your vehicle again with a new car loan.
Finance Option Explained
We cannot provide car loans/finance for private car purchase. However, you can buy from any car dealer of your choice. Your car is effectively the security for the ‘car loan’, where low cost equal monthly payments can be agreed with repayments schedules from 1 year to 5 years as suitable. A small termination payment is payable to transfer legal ownership at the end of the term.

No. You will never have to pay more than the balance outstanding – in fact, it could be less but it depends on how long is left to run on the agreement.
