Minimise Fees

How to minimise personal loan fees and interest charges

Do you have the right personal loan for your needs?

Consider your loan requirements and then find the loan that suits your needs. Our range of personal loans offer flexibility of loan term, competitive interest rate, and a choice of repayment options.

Compare all Bank of Melbourne personal loans.

Fixed or variable – which is better suited to your needs?

A fixed rate loan gives you the security of knowing what your repayments are and protects you against interest rate rises for the life of the loan.

A variable rate loan gives you flexibility, as you make extra payments and you can apply to redraw those funds if you need them. The interest rate is not fixed, so it may vary over the term of the loan.

A loan discharge fee applies to both fixed and variable personal loans if the loan is fully repaid before the end of the loan term. Refer to the Personal Loans Fees and Charges for more information.

Make repayments automatically

Making loan repayments automatically via direct debit could save you the hassle of having to make manual payments on time and can help avoid fees for missed or late payments.

When you have a direct debit set up you can avoid fees for missed or late payments by ensuring that you have enough money in the account that is being debited when the repayment is due. You can organise for your loan repayments to be made from your nominated account on the same day your salary is credited to your account.

Monitor your personal loan
