Key features

The Great Southern Bank fixed rate unsecured personal loan has a 9.39% fixed interest rate (9.64% comparison rate*) for a loan between $5,000 - $50,000 with a $175 application fee.

For this loan, you'll find yourself free of any ongoing fees, only needing to repay interest.

To help fit your repayments into your budget, you're able to choose between weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayments. Furthermore, you can choose to have your loan period be anywhere between 1-7 years.

There are no penalties for extra repayments, so if you come into some money down the line, you could pay off your loan a lot quicker and save on interest payments. But keep in mind that for any redraws of those extra repayments you make in-branch, a $200 minimum withdrawal amount applies.

Who is it good for

You must be over 18 and an Australian permanent resident to be eligible for this loan. So, it could be a suitable option for anyone who fits that criteria, doesn't have assets to secure a loan against, and is looking for a competitive unsecured personal loan with flexible features and minimal fees.

Any catches

Because this loan is unsecured, it does have a higher interest rate than a secured loan. 

While extra repayments are allowed and are free, there is a minimum withdrawal amount of $200 to use the free redraw option in-branch, should you wish to access that cash at a later point in time.

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.
