Bridgecrest services all DriveTime auto loans. There are several ways to make your car payments to Bridgecrest, including automatic withdrawal, online, by text message, in person or via phone by calling 1-888-418-1212. In the past, you could make one-time online payments using your bank account for a $4.50 fee with Western Union through their Speedpay service. Now, you can do so through with no fees.

Bridgecrest highly recommends setting up automatic payments so you can avoid accidentally missing or being late on a payment. You can setup automatic payments by calling 888-418-1212.

Depending on payment method, please make your payment several days before your due date to avoid incurring any late charges or fees.

Adding or removing someone from a loan sounds like a simple task, but it actually requires modifying the loan which can change the terms of your loan. We cannot remove buyers from your loan but if you would like to add someone to your loan, you can begin the process by visiting your local dealership or giving us a call at 888-418-1212.
You can view your loan balance and other account details by logging into your personal account at or you can call the Bridgecrest customer service line at 888-418-1212 .
Payments are applied just like any other installment loan. Your bi-weekly or monthly payment is first applied to the interest owed, then all additional funds are applied to the principle balance. We will also apply your payments to any late fees or penalties for non-sufficient funds.
We understand that situations arise where it can be challenging – or even impossible to make your vehicle payment. Please call Bridgecrest immediately at 888-418-1212 so they can review your account and find a solution.
