Frequently Asked Questions
What are the financing terms?
Financing is provided based on the financial leasing agreement, through which the item is registered in the name of the client and the bank (co-ownership) until the financing amount is fully paid. Ownership of the item is entirely transferred to the client upon the completion of all initially agreed installments, as well as any expenses stipulated in the contract.
What are the additional benefits that come with green car financing?
At Hellenic Bank we acknowledge the importance of an eco-friendly environment and we reward you for contributing to accomplish this.

This is why through the green car financing scheme, you benefit a lower interest rate than the respective interest rate of car hire purchase, as well as with an additional discount on your annual motor insurance premium from Pancyprian Insurance.

What is the process I need to follow to get the financing?
Once the final car order/ invoice, provided to you by the dealer, is submitted to the bank, as well as the required supporting documents, the bank will proceed immediately with the evaluation of your request and with the relevant approval given that internal criteria are met.

Do other financing conditions apply for the purchase of a new vs a used car?
Yes, pricing (interest rates) and maximum duration is differentiated in case you choose to buy a used car. For more information/ clarifications you may contact any branch of Hellenic Bank.
What is the discount on motor insurance offered through this scheme?
By choosing green car financing through our bank, you can benefit from a 15% discount on the annual motor insurance premium from Pancyprian Insurance.
For the discount, terms and conditions are determined by Pancyprian Insurance. Pancyprian Insurance reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to withdraw/amend this offer at any time. Hellenic Bank Public Company Ltd, Pancyprian Insurance Ltd and Hellenic Life Ltd, can in their absolute discretion, reject an application according to their policy at any given time.
What collaterals are required for car financing?
Financial leasing requires co-ownership of the financed car, as well as assignment to the bank of full comprehensive motor insurance.
The granting of the hire purchase is subject to the Bank obtaining satisfactory guarantees/securities. The Bank reserves the right to request for additional collaterals according to its lending policy at the time.
Can I repay part or the full balance of my loan earlier?
Yes, you can repay your loan at any time, partially or in full, without any charge.
What are the differences between fixed interest rate and variable interest rate?
At a fixed rate, the interest rate remains unchanged throughout the duration of the loan. This means that both your instalment and total cost will also remain unchanged, unless the agreed repayment schedule is not followed.
 
The variable interest rate varies since it consists of the Hellenic Bank Main base rate plus margin. The margin remains fixed throughout the term of the loan; however the total interest rate fluctuates according to the methodology for calculating Hellenic Bank Base Rates which can be found here
How can I pay my monthly instalment?
For your convenience we recommend that your monthly instalment be paid through a standing order from your account each month. Alternatively, you can pay your monthly instalment via Online banking.
What happens if I don’t pay my instalment on time?
If you delay in paying your monthly instalment, the total cost of your loan may increase, due to additional charges, as per your agreement with the bank.
If you are experiencing financial difficulties and cannot pay you instalment in accordance to the terms of your contract with the bank, please contact us as soon as possible in order to agree on a new repayment schedule that will meet your new financial conditions.
What fees do I have to pay upon the granting of the loan?
For green car financing, we do not charge any arrangement or documentation fees.
At the settlement of the loan, the car ownership is transferred solely in your name, and you are required to pay €30.50 to the bank as an option fee. The option fee is added to the amount of your final instalment.
Any other bank fees are always charged based on the terms of your contract/ agreement with the bank.
How is the maximum amount I can borrow determined?
Once you submit the necessary information and after evaluation by the bank, the amount of loan that the bank considers that you can serve is determined, based on the cost of living, your income and expenses.
Do I have a right of withdrawal?
You do not have the right of withdrawal, after signing the financial leasing agreement.
What does Annual Percentage Rate (APR) mean?

The APR is the total cost of the loan to the customer expressed in terms of interest rate.
It is considered the best tool for comparing the actual cost of borrowing, as it includes all loan expenses (payments and expenses paid by the customer to the Bank but also to third parties, e.g. government expenses, valuation costs, insurance, etc.).
The APR helps you form a complete picture and compare with different schemes of the bank or schemes offered by other banks.
