Rate comparison websites show you a low rate that hardly anyone qualifies for. We show real loan rates based on matching you to lender rules.
A broker can add up to $1000 to your loan. A rate comparison site gets as much as $50 per click to a lender, so they don't care if you get rejected. We only charge the lender and we only do that if you take out a loan through us.
Googling options and applying to each lender wastes time and can affect your credit score. Using rate comparison sites often leads to annoying sales calls. We show you options in 60 seconds with no follow up calls.

If you meet the basic eligibility for a personal loan, you will then need to compare lenders and assess their individual approval criteria.
To get an e-bike loan you will need to:

The comparison rate is based on an unsecured fixed rate personal loan of $10,000 over 3 years.
