* 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 for the amounts and terms quoted, based on monthly principal and interest repayments, on a secured basis for secured loans and an unsecured basis for unsecured loans, and apply only to these examples. Different amounts and terms will result in different comparison rates. Full comparison rate schedules are available from lenders. Costs such as redraw fees or early repayment fees, and savings such as fee waivers, are not included in the comparison rate but may inﬂuence the cost of the loan.

If you prefer sticking to a routine and knowing where you stand with your repayments, you might find NAB’s fixed rate unsecured personal loan is the perfect pick for you. Loan amounts range from $5,000 to $55,000 and you can choose between a repayment term of one to seven years. But keep in mind this fixed rate loan doesn’t come with the flexible feature of a redraw facility. But then again, this could be a blessing in disguise as you won’t be tempted to dip into those extra repayments you’ve made. Best yet, unlike many other fixed rate loans, NAB’s comes with no break cost fee for repaying the loan before the agreed term comes to an end.
As with the fixed version, NAB’s variable rate unsecured loan lets you borrow between $5,000 to $55,000 and choose a repayment term from one to seven years. While the interest rate is lower than with the Fixed Rate Personal Loan, remember that NAB can lift the rates at any time, so you should factor rate changes into your budget for making repayments. Like NAB’s fixed rate personal loan, you can fast-track your repayments and pay it all off early without footing a break cost fee. The main bonus with having a variable rate personal loan is the redraw facility option, which you can use without extra cost so long as you make your adjusted loan repayments.
One handy feature that comes with NAB’s personal loans is that you get to choose how regularly you make your loan repayments, either weekly, fortnightly or monthly.
If you have extra cash to pump into your loan on top of the usual payments, both NAB’s fixed and variable rate loans allow you to bulk up your repayments and clear the loan early.
Whether it’s for a home makeover or to pay for unexpected bills, if you need to dip into the extra repayments you’ve already made on your loan, NAB’s variable rate unsecured loan will let you do just that.
Having no exit fees is a good incentive to make extra repayments. This is a big plus for NAB because some banks charge hefty break cost fees for paying off a fixed rate loan before the term ends.
NAB has teamed up with MLC insurance to give you the option of taking out an insurance policy to cover your loan repayments. This insurance comes into play if you fall ill or lose your job while you’re still paying off your personal loan.
