Fiona is useful for anyone who wants a quick and easy way to access a list of suitable loans rather than spend a lot of time trawling through individual providers. However, it’s worth bearing in mind that for an auto refinance loan, there are only 4 providers in the network. This means you may need to use Fiona in conjunction with other loan search engines, or check other auto loan providers, to find the most comprehensive list of loans on offer.
When it comes to car loans, Fiona only shows auto refinance loans from its networked providers.
An auto refinance loan means taking out a new loan to pay off your existing car loan. This can help you get:
- Lower monthly repayments
- A better interest rate
- A shorter repayment term
When you complete Fiona’s quick and easy online application form, you will receive matched offers from Fiona’s networked partners. You can compare the offers directly on Fiona’s site in terms of length of repayment and APR and click through to the partner to see the full terms and conditions of each loan offer. You can then make your full application for your chosen loan on the partner’s website.
To get matched with an auto refinance loan, it’s a quick process to fill in the online application on the Fiona website (about 5 minutes). You’ll need to give details of the car you want to refinance, including make, model, year, and trim. You also need to give further personal details such as education level, mortgage repayments, and credit card debt. You’re required to provide an estimate of your credit score, but completing this application won’t affect your score.
