Why a personal loan?


A personal loan is often used to consolidate debts into 
a single repayment or pay for expenses like holidays, weddings and cars that would be difficult to pay off within the interest free period on a credit card.

Unlike a mortgage, our personal loans are “unsecured” which means you don’t need to provide a deposit or collateral (like your home or car).

Unsecured loans are also paid off over a shorter period 
(2–5 years), so you can get to your goal of paying the debt 
off sooner.

Frequently Asked Questions

Things to Consider Before Getting a Personal Loan

What are the interest rates?

Fixed interest rate
Your interest rate doesn't change during the life of your loan. Your repayments are always the same, making it easier to budget.

from 6.99% p.a*

Comparison rate
This takes into account the interest rate plus standard fees and charges, making it easier to understand the complete cost of the personal loan and compare products.

from 6.99% p.a*

Are there any fees?

Establishment fee
No up-front payments, just a one-off fee included in your total loan amount and paid over the life of the loan.

from 3% with a min fee of $300

Late Repayment Fee
If your loan repayment is unable to be processed and the payment remains outstanding, a late fee is payable at 5, 14, 21 & 30 days after the payment date.

$35 per late payment

Direct Debit Dishonour Fee
It’s important to ensure there are enough funds in your account to cover each of your repayments to avoid dishonour fees. This fee is payable if we are unable to process a direct debit from your account.

$15 per dishonour

Early repayment fee
Some lenders charge you for paying your loan out early. We don't!

$0

Are there any certain amounts or terms I should be aware of?

Loan amount limits
The minimum & maximum amount you are able to borrow

$5,000 to $50,000

Loan terms
Your repayments are split over your loan term. A shorter term means less interest is paid over the life of the loan, while loans with longer terms will have lower regular repayments.

2 years, 3 years and 5 years

Is a credit check mandatory in order to apply for a personal loan?

Yes, we use this to calculate your interest rate & reward borrowers who have maintained good credit scores.

Can I apply for a personal loan if I am currently unemployed?

To apply for our personal loan you need to be earning more than $30,000 per annum, although Centrelink can be used as a supporting income stream.

What’s the difference between a secured personal loan & an unsecured personal loan?

A secured personal loan is secured against an asset that you own, most commonly your house or car, as a form of collateral. An unsecured personal loan requires no security which can mean a stricter lending criteria but far more flexibility for those who are eligible.

What happens if I can’t meet my loan repayments?

If you need short-term or medium-term assistance with your repayments please get in touch with us immediately. Our customer service team can discuss options with you that can include flexibility with instalments due, time extensions & other hardship solutions depending on your circumstances.

How is the interest rate of my loan calculated?

Our interest rates are personalised for each customer and are determined based upon factors such as your credit score - the higher your score, the lower your rate.

Are there any additional fees or charges on top of my loan repayments?

We charge a one-off establishment fee that is included in your total loan amount. There are no monthly fees or early repayment fees. You can learn more about how our rates and fees work here.

How much can I borrow?

Our personal loans range from $5,000 to $50,000 with flexible loan terms of 2, 3 or 5 years. We suggest borrowing an amount that best suits your situation, making sure you will be comfortable paying off each instalment.

What loan terms can I choose from and can I pay my loan off early?

We offer 2, 3 and 5 year loan terms. You also have the freedom to pay out your loan early in full or make additional lump sum payments during the life of your loan with no extra fees or penalties.

What repayment options are available?

Repayments can be made in either fortnightly or monthly instalments by direct debit. Personal loan repayments are calculated depending on your choice of 2, 3 or 5 year loan terms, and whether you have chosen fortnightly or monthly repayments along with the interest rate you receive on approval of your loan.

How long will it take for me to receive my funds?

Once you're approved the funds will be transferred to your bank account, usually within 24 hours.
