      Wedding loans explained

      If you’re still deciding which loan is right for you, we’re here to help. Call us on 133 282 for a chat.

      What is a personalised interest rate?

      A personalised interest rate is an interest rate based on an assessment of your credit score. If you have an excellent credit score and a good history of repaying loans, credit cards and other bills, you’ll likely be offered a lower interest rate.

      When you apply for a personal loan, your individual situation and credit score will be considered when calculating your personalised interest rate.

      What is a comparison rate?

      A comparison rate is the interest rate, plus additional fees and charges you will be expected to pay over the loan term. As comparison rates indicate the true cost of a loan, they make it easier to decide which is best for you.

      Can I make repayments on a weekly or fortnightly basis?

      Yes. Your loan contract will be set up for monthly repayments initially, but if you prefer to pay in weekly or fortnightly installments simply call us on 133 282 or drop into a branch and we can arrange this for you.
