Why choose an Unsecured Personal Loan?

Additional funds

Let us know where you want them to go, and we’ll take care of it from there.

Adjust your repayment terms

Choose from 1-7 years, with your regular repayments at the level you’re most comfortable with.

A lower interest rate

That 1% p.a. interest rate discount could help. What’s more, you won’t be charged early repayment fees on your current loan, or an establishment fee on your new one.


How refinancing works

Refinancing means taking out a new loan to replace your current one. That means you’ll need to apply for a new Unsecured Personal Loan, with a credit check as part of the loan approval.

 

You’ll still get all this

Set an end-date for your loan

Every repayment reduces what you owe and gets you closer to paying off your loan.

Borrow between $2k-$50k

Choose a loan size that suits you based on the amount of debt you need to consolidate.

Flexible loan repayments

Choose a loan term of 1-7 years to suit your circumstances and make weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayments.

Borrow without an asset as security

With an Unsecured Personal Loan, you don't have to offer your car as security for your loan.

Redraw facility on variable rate loans

Redraw money from the amount you've repaid if you need to, provided you're at least $500 ahead on your repayments. Each request is subject to approval and a fee.1

Internet banking access

Viewing and tracking your loan is convenient – it’s all in the one place on the mobile banking app.

Our variable rate Unsecured Personal Loans have a standard term of 1 to 7 years. There is a $150 early repayment fee if you fully repay the new loan within the first 12 months (you will also have to pay break costs on early repayment of a fixed rate loan); or a $100 early repayment fee if you fully repay the loan after the first 12 months and before the end of the new loan’s term (you will also have to pay break costs on early repayment of a fixed rate loan). This early repayment fee is waived if you pay out your personal loan by refinancing to another Bank of Melbourne personal loan.
