Do you provide loans on all types of caravans?
In general, Jade Caravan Finance provides finance for all types of caravans and recreational vehicles under the broad umbrella caravan category of vehicles.
Off road and semi off road caravans
Pop-tops and slide-outs
Loans can be sourced for both new and used caravans but some lenders will have conditions around offering loans for caravans depending on the age of the vehicle.
The Secured Caravan Loan is the most popular form of finance and suits most applicants and most caravans. For caravans that do not meet the lender requirements for a secured loan, your Jade consultant can proceed to source you a quote on an Unsecured Personal Loan for your purchase.
Is there a difference between new and used leisure camping loans?
There can be but at Jade we deal with each loan application on a personal and individual basis so we like to avoid blanket statements in this regard. Lenders will consider the age and in some cases the condition of a used caravan when assessing a loan application. For new caravan purchases, the Secured Caravan Loan is the most commonly used loan and suits most applicants.
Lenders will have a threshold for the age of used caravans that they will finance. This may be around 15 years but will vary from lender to lender so it is advisable to discuss this with your Jade consultant.
As we are accredited with a large number of lenders, we have access to lenders that are more amenable to discussing loans for older caravans. We appreciate the growing trend to purchase older, vintage and retro vans for restoration into contemporary touring spaces. For those purchasing a used van which is outside the age threshold for a secured loan, we offer the Unsecured Personal Loan option.
What is the difference between secured and unsecured loan?
With a Secured Loan the leisure goods are offered as security against the loan. The borrower repays the loan in monthly instalments and when the financing is finalised, the lender releases the security against the loan. If the borrower defaults on their payments, the lender has the right to repossess the goods.
With an Unsecured Personal Loan, there is no security against the loan. This may occur with older liesure goods and where an overall application does not meet the lender conditions. As there is no security, the interest rate on this type of loan is sometimes higher than for a secured loan and additional conditions may be applied by the lender. However, your Jade consultant will be working hard to negotiate our trademark better interest rate, regardless of the type of loan.
The lender may request additional security from the buyer in the form of other property, goods, assets or personal guarantee for unsecured loans.

When your consultant has the required information, we proceed to source you a loan quote. When you accept that quote we continue with application processing and handle the paperwork for you.
What loan term can I get for my caravan loan?
The loan term offered to individual loan applicants will depend on a number factors but in general, Jade Caravan Finance loan terms range from 2-7 years.
As we treat every application on an individual basis, your consultant will be negotiating with different lenders to achieve the loan term that you prefer. Individual lenders will have conditions around loan terms based on their risk assessment of the applicant, the loan amount being requested and specifics of the caravan.
Longer terms can sometime be achieved on new caravans compared with used caravans. In your initial discussion with our consultant, let us know your preference for loan term so we have a target to work towards for you.
What is the interest rate on caravan loans?
Jade advertises a general best interest rate on our website and that rate varies over time depending on general lending conditions in the finance sector. It should be used as a guide only as each application is assessed individually by our lenders when offering a quote.
The interest rate offered for individual loan applicants will vary based on the individual’s credit profile and application details. The rate you are offered may be in line with our currently advertised rate or it may be higher.
Interest rates on unsecured loans could sometimes be higher than the rate for secured loans.
Jade is committed to achieving the cheapest interest rate for every customer and our accreditation with a large number of lenders enables us to source the cheapest loans.
Can I make extra payments on my loan?
Yes, both Secured Leisure Loans and Unsecured Personal Loans used to buy, allow borrowers to make extra payments. Additional payments may be made regularly or on a one-off basis.
The issue to consider if you choose to make additional payments while maintaining your scheduled repayments is that you will pay off your loan earlier than the fixed loan term. When a loan is paid out early, break fees may apply.
For Secured and Unsecured Loans on a fixed interest rate, the break fees are minimal. For Unsecured Loans with a variable interest rate, there are normally no break fees. The break fees that apply to your specific loan can be advised at the time the loan contract is arranged. Alternatively you can contact your lender for details.
If you do consider you will want to make additional payments, you may like to consider increasing the repayments at the start of the loan. That way you will pay off the loan earlier, incur less interest overall and not incur break fees.
How can you secure me a cheaper loan?
When you approach sourcing a loan yourself, you will be limited to those lenders that are available to consumers and offering leisure finance. Some major banks offer personal loans for caravans and a raft of finance companies also. But you will usually be offered the standard interest rate and need to meet their individual lending conditions.
In contrast, Jade is a leading lender in lifestyle finance and we are accredited with a large number of banks and non-bank lenders. Many of our lenders only work with brokers and they are more amenable to being flexible and negotiating on interest rates and conditions.
As we have significant bargaining power in the lifestyle finance sector, we can achieve better interest rates which are individually negotiated for each of our customers.
By engaging Jade to source your caravan loan, you have the expertise and experience of finance professionals working in your best interests.
