If you’re yet to look too far ahead this year, diary alert – the Easter holiday weekend starts on 15 April this year. Easter is a very popular time to head out of town on a road trip so it’s time to start planning. With several state governments incentives to get out and about, such as the NSW dine, discover and accommodation vouchers, an Easter getaway could be an attractive option. But first a few things to attend to. Primarily, do you have the ideal vehicle for the trip planned? First stop, cheap car loan, then new car.
Securing a cheap car loan can offset rising fuel prices and other expenses associated with an Easter other road trip and the work day commute. With interest rates still at low levels, now could be the ideal time to upgrade your car with cheap motor vehicle finance so you’re ready to hit the road with dollars to spare for entertainment.
Selecting a vehicle is a very individual and personal decision. If focusing on road trip holidays, here are a few things to keep in mind:-
- SUVs are extremely popular and highly versatile, with even many of the small, compact models providing plenty of space for people, gear and luggage.
- But all SUVs are not four wheel drive or suited for off-road adventure.
- If planning to head off-road then an SUV with 4x4 or off-road capability is a must. Easter can be known for rain in some places so having the right vehicle to tackle the conditions is essential.
- If planning to tow a boat, jet ski or caravan, ensure the towing capacity matches the weight of the boat or van.
- If planning to stick to the black top and cruise the highways to coastal or rural retreats, consider a roadster or even a convertible to up the ante of the experience. These of course often come with limited seating and luggage space.
- Wagons are a great middle of the road option.
- Cab chassis and dual cab utes can be the ideal Goldilocks selection for those wanting a getaway and a work vehicle in one.
Availability is likely key to which particular vehicle you can secure pre-Easter. It can be wise to be open-minded and organise your car loan prior to the vehicle search so you’re ready to buy quickly and nab limited supply vehicles.

We offer pre-approved finance for all car loans so we can get you organised to be well-positioned to secure low supply makes and models in high demand.
Securing the Cheapest Car Loan
Car loan interest rates vary with lenders and for business buyers across the loan selection. Be mindful that advertised interest rates typically refer to new vehicles and for good credit loan applicants. Checking your credit profile for any errors prior to applying may assist in securing a cheaper interest rate.
Because the car finance market is so vast, assessing, applying and reviewing loans from multiple lenders to find the cheapest can be a time-consuming process. Reminder – Easter is approaching and some vehicles are in low supply. So speeding up the finance process could be critical to achieving your objectives.
We can assist on that front quite simply. As mentioned above, with our accreditations with multiple banks and non-bank lenders, our consultants save you the time and hassle of the cheap loan search. Sourcing the cheapest offer quickly and easily while you attend to other matters.
To see how our interest rates compare with other lenders simply refer to our Compare Business Car Interest Rates calculator. This buying tool allows car buyers to enter the loan amount and instantly see what the loan repayments may be. A great shortcut to a buying shortlist!
