*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. WARNING: 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.

What personal loans do Credit Union SA offer?

Fixed rate car loan:

Are you after a car loan, and want the consistency that comes with having a fixed interest rate? Then check out Credit Union SA’s fixed rate car loan, with loan amounts ranging from $5k to $100k. Loan terms vary between one and seven years, and the vehicle you secure to the loan can be up to seven years old. Credit Union SA won’t penalise you for repaying the loan before the total amount is due, and extra repayments are fee-free. You’ll also have access to those additional repayments via a free redraw facility. While there are zero monthly fees, keep in mind an initial sign up cost applies when you take out the loan.

Secured personal loan:

If you need a personal loan and have an asset, you can tie it to this Credit Union SA loan as collateral in return for a competitive variable rate. Just like the Credit Union SA car loan there are several interest rate tiers dependant on the loan amount. Flexible features as the product mentioned above still apply including no early loan repayment penalty costs, and a free redraw facility to dip into any extra repayments you’ve made. A similar sign up fee is involved, but there are no monthly administration costs to consider.

Unsecured personal loan:

The Credit Union SA unsecured personal loan is suitable for those wanting a personal loan to finance a dream, but who don’t have an asset to offer as security. Just like the secured personal loan, the interest rate can change at any point during the loan term. Benefits of this loan include a free redraw facility, no early loan repayment costs, and zero ongoing fees. You’ll need to pay a one-off fee when you first sign on.
