Help to find the right offer with Equifax Marketplace
Discover tailored credit card and loan offers for you, all without affecting your credit score. Get started, with three easy steps:

Enter some personal information to match you with the right lender
Creditec will share the information you provide as part of your application with its panel of lenders. To help ensure you get matched with an option through the panel of lenders, a soft search gets carried out on your credit file.*
At the end, you’ll get a tailored credit card or loan comparison
Creditec will send you the results of the tailored credit card or personal loan comparison. An email report will include lenders and options that may be a good fit for you.

Frequently asked questions
If you can pay off your debt during that interest-free period, you will avoid paying interest on your debt. Be aware that if you miss or make a late payment during this offer period you may lose your 0% balance transfer rate. Additionally, you will pay interest on any purchases you make during the 0% balance transfer promotional period.
However, always remember to pay careful attention to the cards’ terms and conditions. Plus, keep a close eye on spending and repayments if you're managing more than one card.
The limit will then be changed in line with your credit profile and your overall record as a borrower.
Contact your provider if you're having difficulty making repayments.
Compare different offers widely and always read the terms carefully before making your final choice.
Securing a loan against an asset reduces the risk to the lender, not the consumer. As a result, secured loans may have lower interest rates. They often have higher borrowing limits and longer repayment periods than unsecured loans.
If you default on your loan, then the lender can claim the asset as repayment. An unsecured loan doesn't require an asset. However, to compensate for this, they often have higher interest rates.
Also, interest rates may be higher, and terms might be stricter. It’s wise to compare loans to find the best fit for you.
Or, if you’re looking for a new loan, check the terms carefully if you think you might be in a position to repay ahead of time.
That said, some lenders might have restrictions on what funds can be used for, so always check the terms carefully.
