      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’s the difference between a fixed rate and a variable rate loan?

      The main difference is in the interest rate. With a fixed rate loan the interest rate stays the same throughout the loan term. You’ll have the same repayment amount each month and it’s great if you want repayment certainty and stability in your budget.

      An Unsecured Variable Personal Loan charges an interest rate that is subject to change. This means you could enjoy a lower rate, should the lending rates change. However, you could incur a higher interest rate if the lending rates increase.

      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.
