Our review of Car Cash Point
Car Cash Point focus on price, and at time of writing this review offer their customers the cheapest deal on the market. However, their advertised representative APR is actually towards the more expensive end of our table and more than double the cheapest option, so it’s worth taking their claims with a pinch of salt. The Switch & Save service is a nice touch that sets them apart from their competitors, and the £100 cash back bonus could come in handy, or go towards paying off your loan early – as there is no fee for early repayment it’s worth taking advantage if you can.
You will need to live in England or Wales to take out a logbook loan with Car Cash Point, however you can use vehicles such as vans, motorbikes and cars as security against your loan.
