The website quote is an estimated value range generated by our pricing algorithm based on some broad parameters like car make and model, variant, odometer reading and other details that you enter on the website. The final price quote offered also takes into consideration the physical condition of your vehicle as evaluated during the inspection process and market conditions.

Transaction Guidelines

I did not get the full amount as promised at the branch, why did that happen?

There are different reasons why that may have happened. CARS24 may levy certain deductions to facilitate the transaction or in case of non-fulfillment of requirements by the seller. These include deductions for the delay in car delivery, hypothecation removal, existing challans on the vehicle, missing duplicate key, expired insurance, non-availability of original RC, etc. These deductions are non-refundable.

In some cases, some amount may be held back which is released once you comply with the requirements. These include:

1. Bank Loan NOC: In the event that your car was financed by a bank, the NOC from the bank must be presented stating that the loan amount has been paid off. In case the NOC isn’t available, some amount is held back till the NOC is submitted. This amount varies depending on the final price offered for your car.

2. Party Peshi: The RTOs of certain states require the presence of the vehicle owner in order to initiate the transfer of RC. In this case, an amount of Rs 10000 is held back until you comply with the process.

3. Inter-State Transfer: In case the vehicle is to be cleared for inter-state migration, an amount of Rs 10000 is held back and released within 21 Days provided there is no transfer document discrepancy.

What happens if I cancel the deal after signing the documents?

We strive to offer a hassle-free experience to our customers as well as our channel partners.

This charge is to compensate for the overhead cost of the entire transaction and any monetary loss that our channel partner who booked this car incurred due to this cancellation. Please remember, no cancellation is possible once the delivery amount has been paid.

What if I don't get the amount within the stipulated time?

We make sure to process the total amount once all the documentation is complete. Please note that some amount could be held back if all the requirements are not met. If you wish to understand any hold back amount on your invoice, please reach out to us at 1800 258 5656.

You can have the car fully financed by applying for the Zero Down Payment facility! The exact amount of financing that you are eligible for will be confirmed by our team once you submit all the relevant documents for loan approval.

What are the interest rates applicable?

This will depend on certain factors like the specific car you intend to buy and your credit score.

Of course! But you may find the process easier with our financing options. The loans offered here are quick, hassle-free, and paperless, and come with Zero Down Payment, flexible EMI options, and easy foreclosure options.

What if I take a loan but want to return my car within 7 days?
