Structuring your Choices Home Loan

Anyone can apply for this loan, whether you are a new or existing Westpac home loan customer. Existing customers will need to sign new loan documentation (which may mean your existing benefits are not transferred). Break costs may be payable if you break a fixed term to transfer to the Choices Home Loan with Airpoints.

Because your new Choices Home Loan with Airpoints can be set up with a fixed, floating, capped or split interest rate, take a look at each of these loan options to explore what type of structure will suit you best.

You’ll also find an overview of features on the “Features in detail” tab.

Transactional Loan (Revolving Credit)  X  X  X  
Transfer of property       You may be able to take your home loan with you if you move property, meaning you won’t have to break your fixed rate and incur prepayment (break) costs
Top-up  $5,000 or more  $5,000 or more  $5,000 or more You can apply to top up your loan by $5,000 or more at any time during your loan term.
Repayment options    
Repayment frequency Fortnightly or Monthly Fortnightly or Monthly Fortnightly or Monthly Choose between fortnightly and monthly repayment cycles to coincide with when you receive your income/salary.
Table (Principal & Interest)        With a table loan your regular payments are the same each time (unless interest rates change). This is the most popular type of loan because it gives more consistency to your payments*.
Interest only        An interest only loan is where you pay the interest owing each fortnight or month but nothing off the loan itself.
Flat / Reducing        With a reducing loan you pay a set amount off the loan each time plus the interest you owe. So your payments are a lot higher at the start than later on.
Increase Regular Repayments By up to 20% of your minimum repayment     With Westpac fixed rate loans you can increase your regular loan repayment by up to 20% of the minimum repayment at any time during the fixed period – this means if your income increases you can choose to pay more towards your loan, saving you interest.
Reduce Regular Repayments        If you’re paying more than the minimum required you can reduce your regular repayments to any amount at or above the minimum.
One-Off Lump Sum Repayments But fixed rate prepayment (break) costs are likely to apply     If you choose to make a lump sum payment on your fixed rate loan before the fixed rate term ends you are likely to incur prepayment (break) costsWith a Floating or Capped loan you can partly or fully repay your loan at any time without break costs.
