Frequently asked questions

Why Gedda Money?

We’re an alternative lender, here to help Australians find a brighter financial future. We try and find ways to help when banks won’t, and we’re way cheaper than a payday loan.

With a simple, 10-minute online application process, this could be your first step on the way to financial freedom.

What if I have a bad credit score?

At Gedda Money, we believe in assessing you based on your circumstances today, not what has happened in your past. We help you move forward, without judging you on the “black marks” on your credit report.

We do not base your application off your credit score, so whether you have a less than perfect credit rating, or are looking to consolidate any number of debts into one easy-to-manage loan, we aim to work with you to find the most suitable loan solution for you.

Gedda Money offers secure vehicle loans between $8,000 to $50,000.

Why Gedda Money over a Payday Lender?

Payday loans involve high interest rates that are designed to be a quick fix for a short-term solution. In comparison, Gedda Money offers a real alternative to high-cost, short-term loans. We want to help you consolidate your debt, and to help solve the larger problems you’re dealing with.

Gedda Money may also help you to improve your credit score, save on interest and pay off your loans sooner.

Why Gedda Money over a Bank?

Well, we’re not your everyday lender. We actually care about rewarding good repayment history and want to help our customers on their path to financial freedom.

Unlike banks, we do not base your application off your credit score, so whether you have a less than perfect credit rating, or are looking to consolidate any number of debts into one easy-to-manage loan, we aim to work with you to find the most suitable loan solution for you.

Am I limited to a type of car under your loan?

No. You can choose a vehicle that suits your budget and loan amount. The type of car is your choice, not ours.

Can I purchase a motorbike?

Yes, you can purchase a motorbike. However, it must be registered with your respective state motoring department.

Can I purchase a camper-trailer with your vehicle loan?

You sure can. So long as your purchase fits within the parameters of your loan amount and it holds a current registration.

What happens if I don’t want to buy the car after the loan has been approved and funds disbursed?

Unfortunately, you have technically purchased the vehicle, as the funds have been disbursed to the seller. You are responsible for the finance on it now. However, if within 20 business days, you can negotiate out of your contract with the seller and have the full amount of funds returned to us, we may close the loan off. 

It’s best to talk with us as soon as possible when something like this happens.

Will my application affect my credit score if I withdraw it?

No. Not at Gedda Money. Your application is between you and us.  We will only let the credit houses know about your application in the final stage prior to the loan being approved. This ensures that your credit score is not affected simply for applying for a loan.

How much can I afford to borrow?

We’d recommend to talk to our advisors as they will work closely with you to ensure your loan is affordable. We look at your application thoroughly and tailor a simple loan that suits your financial circumstances.

How much can I borrow?

We provide vehicle loans range between $8,000 and $50,000.

What documents do I need when applying for a loan?

Again, we’ll need to look into your situation in more detail to let you know all of the things we’ll need. At a minimum we’ll ask for:

  • 3 months personal bank statements (sourced during application process through a secure third party provider);
  • Identification documents
  • Income verification
  • PAYG employees – 3 most recent payslips

How long does it take to get a decision on my application?

Once we have received all the required information and documents, you will receive a call from one of our loan consultants. Generally a decision can be made on your application within 48 hours.

Am I eligible for a loan?

We’ll need to look into your situation in greater detail to provide an answer to this question. 

First off though, you must meet the following criteria as a minimum:

  • Aged 18 years or older;
  • An Australian citizen or permanent residents or hold a Visa that is acceptable to Gedda Money;
  • Hold a current and valid Drivers Licence and Medicare Card;
  • Reside in Australia with an acceptable, locatable fixed and verified address.

Can I get a loan if I am bankrupt or in a debt agreement?

No, unfortunately, not if you are currently in bankruptcy or a Part 9 or 10 debt agreement. However, if you are discharged we may be able to assist you.

Can I get a loan if I am a discharged bankrupt?

Yes, if you have been discharged from Bankruptcy we are able to assist you. In this circumstance, your recent repayment history is more heavily weighted as part of the process of assessing your loan.

What happens once I am approved for a loan?

We will provide the loan amount directly to the seller of the vehicle.

Can I have my vehicle loan funds put directly into my account so I can pay the seller?

Unfortunately, no. We will transfer the funds to the dealer directly or if it is a private sale, we will obtain the bank account details of the seller and transfer the funds directly into their account.

How do I make loan repayments?

We make this as simple as possible for you. As part of your loan establishment, we set-up a direct debit from your bank account automatically on your pay day.  By matching your repayments to the timing of your income, we make it easy for you to plan and budget.

What happens if I know that I’m going to miss a loan payment?

Don’t be shy about it, sometimes it happens. But it’s important that you get in contact with us as soon as you know you will be missing a payment.  The more time you give us, the more we can work with you about a resolution.

What happens if I do miss a loan payment?

We understand that sometimes things happen that are outside of your control. If you give us a call to notify us that you’ll be missing a payment, and make up the payment, we will waive your dishonour fee. However, if we need to call you to request the payment, the dishonour fee will apply. So a 5-min call may save you money.

Can I make extra repayments?

Yes, of course. The quicker you pay your loan down, the more financial freedom you get. We don’t mind at all and we will not charge you for making additional repayments. To close your loan off, we will charge a one-off $50 administration charge.

Can I draw-down on my extra repayments?

Unfortunately no. We do not allow you to withdraw any funds back off your loan, even if you have made additional repayments.
