Borrowers can now “push for a better deal” thanks to a new website that will let Australians check their credit score.
GetCreditScore.com.au was launched yesterday by Veda and peer-to-peer lending platform SocietyOne.
The website allows Australians to access their VedaScore by visiting the website and providing their name, address, date of birth, email and driver’s licence number or passport number.
It is being promoted as a way for people to negotiate better terms from lenders.
GetCreditScore spokesperson Christopher Zinn said the website would empower borrowers.
"Credit scores are becoming increasingly important for Australians, yet most people would not know their score,” he said.
“It is time now for consumers to get informed, find out their score and start pushing for a better deal. GetCreditScore.com.au puts the power back in your hands."
