Why travel with an Unsecured Personal Loan?

Set an end-date
Every repayment reduces what you owe and gets you closer to paying off the cost of your trip.
Borrow up to $40,000
Borrow $2,000–$40,000, then use the funds to confirm the details of your itinerary.
Flexible loan repayments
Choose a term of 1-7 years, make weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayments and repay early without incurring break costs (an early repayment fee will apply).
Redraw if you need to
Redraw money on variable rate loans from the amount you've repaid if you need to, provided you're $500 ahead on your repayments. Each request is subject to approval and a fee.

How could you use an Unsecured Personal Loan?

Purchase flights
Use funds to start joining the dots in your itinerary by booking flights, rail passes and bus tickets or be ready when you see a sale on airfares.
Book where you’ll stay
Stop researching and start booking the hotel rooms, apartments and hostels you want to stay in along the way.
Buy travel accessories
Whether you’re backpacking around India or doing the Tongariro crossing, an Unsecured Personal Loan could help you get the equipment you need.

^ Comparison rates help you understand the true cost of a loan. They usually include the annual interest rate plus most fees and charges. The above comparison rates are based on an unsecured personal loan of $30,000 over 5 years and are only true for this example. Interest rate ranges and representative examples are: Based on an unsecured loan of $30,000 borrowed for 5 years with the minimum interest rate of 12.49% p.a. (13.37% p.a. comparison rate), the estimated total amount payable including fees is $41,470; and with the maximum interest rate of 19.99% p.a. (21.02% p.a. comparison rate), the estimated total amount payable including fees is $48,709. WARNING: This comparison rate applies only to the example or examples given and may not include all fees and charges. Different amounts and terms will result in different comparison rates. Costs such as redraw fees or early repayment fees, and cost savings such as fee waivers, are not included in the comparison rate but may influence the cost of the loan..
