Online lender Tic: Toc today cut variable rates on some home loans by 15 basis points to their lowest ever.
The variable rate of the lender paying principal and interest (P&I) for owner-occupiers has been reduced to 2.04% per annum (comparison rate of 2.05% per annum *), for loan-to-value ratios (LVR ) up to 90%.
Tic: Toc now also claims to have the lowest no-charge variable loan (P&I) for investors, now at 2.19% per annum (comparison rate of 2.20% per annum *) for borrowers with a maximum LVR by 90%.
Tic: Toc, Marketing and Communications Manager Laura Osti, said there was now “no excuse” not to find a competitive interest rate.
“Tic: Toc wants to prove to Australians that refinancing at a lower rate is not a burden, it is a right,” she said.
“We’ve made the process quick and easy, so Australians can take control and take care of themselves by getting the best possible home loan for them.”

Fixed rate loans continue their trekking journey
In addition to some reductions, Tic: Toc has also increased interest rates on some home loans, especially in the fixed space.
Some highlights include:
- 1 Year Fixed IO Investment: 43 basis points increase to 2.82% pa (benchmark rate of 2.85% pa *)
- Live-In P&I Fixed 4 Years: 10 basis points increase to 2.59% pa (comparison rate of 2.23% pa ââ*)
Tic: Toc isn’t the only lender to increase fixed loan rates lately, with Westpac, Aussie, UBank and Citi having done so in recent weeks.
