Did someone say personal loan interest rate cuts? That’s right! While COVID restrictions might have Aussies locked down at home, personal loan rates have been moving.

Since June 2021, we’ve seen a number of different lenders slash personal loan variable interest rates by as much as 4.1%.

St George, Bank SA, Bank of Melbourne and Community First Credit Union were among some of the lenders that made changes to personal loan products in the June - August 2021 period.

St George took 4.1% off its Unsecured Personal Loan, while Bank SA and Bank of Melbourne also took 4.1% from their Bank SA Personal Loan and Bank of Melbourne Unsecured Personal Loan respectively.

Community First Credit Union dropped the rates on both its Home Improvement Loan by 4% and its Green Loan  by 4%, bringing both rates to 3.99% p.a. (4.99% p.a. comparison rate) - one of the most competitive in the Mozo database.

Also in the green personal loan space, Illawarra Credit Union reduced its Green Loan rate 2%, matching Community First Credit Union’s competitive 3.99% p.a. rate (5.15% p.a. comparison rate).

* WARNING: The Comparison Rate combines the lender's interest rate, fees and charges into a single rate to show the true cost of a personal loan. The comparison rates displayed are calculated based on a loan of $30,000 for a term of 5 years or a loan of $10,000 for a term of 3 years as indicated, based on monthly principal and interest repayments, on a secured basis for secured loans and an unsecured basis for unsecured loans. This comparison rate applies only to the example or examples given. 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.
