The DAP involves converting your accommodation cost into an ongoing daily payment that is billed monthly. The daily payment is charged periodically at the Maximum Permissible Interest Rate (MPIR) as set by the Australian Government. The RAD is a one-off, lump sum accommodation payment that is fully refundable at the end of your stay - less any amounts you agree to have deducted Use this helpful tool to calculate your desired combination payment. Changing the RAD amount will automatically adjust the DAP. Combination payments involve making a one-off, lump-sum payment that is less than your total room price (RAD) and then making smaller ongoing DAP payments.
