At this point in time you will be able to choose from a couple of options:
- You can refix for another term of your choice - you can even do this up to 60 days in advance with a rate lock agreement*.
- If you don’t take any action you will roll onto our current floating interest rate once your fixed rate expires.

What are my options?
Re-fix your rate
Re-fix your loan with Choices Fixed and enjoy peace of mind about the amount of your ongoing home loan repayments. As you already know, a fixed rate is great if you want to set your repayments and know they’re not going to change during the fixed term.
Get some flexibility with floating
With Choices Floating your rate increases and decreases in line with the market and you’ll have the flexibility to pay lump sums off your home loan or increase your regular payments at any time without any additional costs.
Get the best of both worlds by splitting
If you’d like the best of both worlds, you might want to consider our Split Home Loan option which allows you to split your loan between fixed and variable rates. By having a portion of your loan on our floating rate, you have the flexibility to pay lump sums on this part at any time without any additional cost. And by fixing the remainder of your loan, you continue to have the security of paying the same each month on that portion.
Limit your interest rate risk
With Choices Capped your interest rate is capped for a set term, so you’ll pay less interest if rates fall, but if they go up, your interest rate will never go higher than the capped rate during the capped rate term.
You could save loads by offsetting your balances
Our Choices Offset loan option lets you use the balance of your eligible Westpac transaction and savings accounts to ‘offset’ against your floating home loan. It could save you in interest payments and cut years off your home loan.
