As a responsible lender and lending referrer, we aim to offer our readers clear and accurate information. We aim to provide articles and resources to help customers make a lending decision that is best for them and doesn’t lead to undue financial stress. 

Understanding the different types of short-term and personal loans and deciding on a lender can be overwhelming.

Our editorial team work to simplify and clarify:

  • The different types of short-term loans available and their fee structures
  • What to expect and how to choose a loan amount right for you and your individual circumstances
  • Understanding the total cost of a loan, estimated repayment amounts and schedule, and the likelihood of being approved for a loan
  • The best types of loans to consider in special circumstances, such as:
    • Applicants with a bad credit rating or who would like a no credit check loan
    • Centrelink income or other government benefits
    • Applicants with part-time employment
    • Emergencies where cash needs to be paid quickly, such as that same day
