If you want more in-depth info, simply click through to the type of loan you’re interested in, and you can find our detailed guides covering everything you need to know.
With so many different types of personal loans on the market, you are sure to find one that meets your needs. Thinking about doing a kitchen reno or putting a deck in the backyard? Maybe you’re planning the trip of a lifetime – or your big day?
Whatever you need funds for, you can find a personal loan to cover it.
How does it work? When you apply for a personal loan, you choose how much you want to borrow – and how long you will need to pay it back. Once approved, you sign a loan contract and receive your funds.
Over the period stated in your loan contract, you make regular repayments to pay off your loan, along with any agreed-upon interest and fees.
Fortunately, we’re here to help you combat each of those potential downsides. Our team can help guide you through the various options available, to match you with a loan that suits you. We can also offer guidance on how to keep costs to a minimum, while finding a repayment schedule that works within your budget.
Pros & Cons of Personal Loans
With the right personal loan, you can cover pretty much anything, from travel to home renovations to medical bills.
Offering a range of flexible features, personal loans can be adapted to your needs. Check out features that allow you to choose the frequency of your repayments, or to pay off your loan faster by making extra repayments.
Personal loans can offer a structured way to repay borrowed funds. Unlike credit cards, for example, personal loans have a repayment schedule that requires borrowers to pay off their debt in a timely manner.
Personal loans can also offer lower interest rates than other types of credit. This can help borrowers save on interest, to pay off their debt faster.
By making repayments on time, those who have personal loans can build their credit over time, making it easier to get approved for more credit in the future.
With so many variations and features, it can be hard to find the right personal loan to suit your needs.
It’s not always easy to compare options, taking into account the various costs in fees and interest.
If you choose a longer loan term to take advantage of lower repayments, you may end up paying over the odds in interest.
Personal loans can also be used to consolidate debt. These debt consolidation loans provide a popular way of either streamlining finances or paying down multiple debts. Well then, how do they work?
When you apply for a debt consolidation loan, you use that loan to pay off your other debts. Essentially, you roll all your debts into one. This can have any number of benefits.
- With just one repayment, instead of many, you only have to keep track of one repayment date. This can reduce stress associated with juggling multiple debts and multiple repayments.
- You can choose a repayment schedule that fits your budget. If your repayments are currently too much to handle, you could opt for a longer loan term, lowering your repayments to make them more manageable.
- Alternatively, your consolidation loan could help you lower the cost of your loan overall. If you have high interest debt, such as credit cards, you could save on interest by rolling them into a low interest consolidation loan.
Want to consolidate your debts? No matter your reason for consolidating, we can help you compare your options, so you can apply for a loan that will help you reach your goals.
After your home, your car is likely to be your largest purchase in life. But how are you going to cover the cost of that purchase if you don’t have the money you need upfront? A car loan, of course.
A car loan will most likely be secured against the car you buy. However, there are unsecured car loans out there too. You can opt for a new car loan – if you plan on buying a new car, typically up to two years old – or a used car loan. With a used car loan, the car may need to meet certain requirements in terms of both its age and condition.
If you’re unsure about what type of car loan will suit your needs, let us do the hard work for you. Simply tell us what you’re looking for in a loan, and we’ll do the hard work for you. From there, it’s a matter of comparing the options on offer, choosing and applying. Easy as that.
Car Loan Providers
While getting finance from the dealership might be convenient, it may not be the most cost effective way to choose a loan. Dealer finance may come with higher interest and fees – and a pushy salesperson.
With no bricks-and-mortar costs to cover, online providers can offer lower interest and fees, with a much faster application and approvals process.
As the more traditional option, banks offer a wide range of car loans. Depending on the bank, the application process might be somewhat longer than other options – such as online providers – and the costs may be higher too.
When it comes time to compare loans, it pays to know what to look for before you start your comparison. Whether you are comparing personal loans, consolidation loans, home loans or car loans, here are some of the most important factors to consider when making your choice.
What do you need the loan for?
Thinking about what you need to use the loan for should help you narrow your options. If you’re looking to buy a car, think about whether you want to secure your loan against the car – and whether you want to buy new or used. If you want a personal loan, think about what you will use the loan for. Home renovation? A holiday? Your big day?
How much do you need to borrow?
Once you fully understand the purpose of the loan, you can work out how much you’ll need to borrow. If you’re borrowing to buy a car, look at the various models you’re interested in. If you’re borrowing to cover a home reno or a holiday, create a budget to find out how much it will cost overall.
How much can you afford to borrow?
Now you know how much you need to borrow, it’s time to take a step back and find out how much you can afford to borrow. To do this, you will need to create a budget to find out how much you can afford to pay back each month on your loan.
From there, you can use a loan calculator to see how much you can afford to borrow overall, keeping that ideal repayment amount in mind. This can be something of a chicken-and-egg scenario, so it can help to play around with options, increasing and decreasing the loan period and amount to find the sweet spot.

Top questions people ask us
In the world of personal loans, there are secured personal loans and unsecured personal loans. So, how do they work? And what’s the difference between the two?
A secured personal loan is secured against an asset. Acting as collateral on the loan, this asset works to reduce risk for the lender, which provides a number of benefits to you as the borrower.
Secured personal loans can feature lower interest rates and fees than unsecured personal loans, making them a lower cost option in many cases.
Secured personal loans can be easier to get approved for, appealing to borrowers who are self-employed, who are employed part-time, or who have mediocre credit.
On the other hand, an unsecured personal loan is not secured against any type of asset. This can appeal to borrowers who perhaps don’t have an asset to use as collateral, or those who don’t want to risk losing their asset if they are unable to repay their loan.
What assets can you use to secure a personal loan? While this will depend on the lender, assets commonly used as collateral on this type of loan include new and used cars, property, high value assets such as jewellery and fine art, and monetary assets such as term deposits.
Lenders may also place limits on what you can and can’t use a secured personal loan for. You may choose to secure your loan against a new or used car you’re buying, or you could use your home as collateral to cover home renovations. Secured loans could also cover large purchases such as an engagement ring.

Step 1. You’ll need to provide some info, as required by the lender. This will likely include your personal and contact details, employment info, details of any assets or debts, as well as a snapshot of your regular income and outgoings.
Step 2. The lender will ask you to provide documentation to back up the information you have provided. This may include your passport or driver’s licence, and your payslips.
Step 3. With this information, the lender will assess your ability to repay the requested loan amount. The lender will also carry out a credit check to determine your creditworthiness. You may be asked to provide further documentation in certain circumstances, for example, if you are self-employed.
Step 4. As long as all is well with the application, the lender will send you confirmation of your approval. You will receive a loan contract, providing details of your repayment schedule, interest rate and fees.
Step 5. If you’re happy with the loan contract and all it offers, e-sign it and return it to the lender. The lender will then arrange for the funds to be drawn down.
