Alternative Finance Solutions

It’s not “one size fits all” when it comes to loans. If you’re self-employed, have bad credit or need money quicker than most lenders can review your application, there are options available for you.

Other forms of credit you can compare

Loans for your wedding

A wedding loan is an innovative type of loan that allows you to fund different aspects of your wedding. Weddings can cost in upwards of $50,000, so having a personal loan to help finance some or all of your special day can come in handy. These type of loans usually come in the form of an unsecured personal loan or line of credit.

How to use a boat loan

If you’re looking to purchase a boat you can secure financing through a boat loan. These loans work similarly to car loans in that you can choose to attach your newly-purchased boat as a guarantee to enjoy lower rates, or you can take out an unsecured personal loan so its less of a risk on your part.

Loans for cosmetic surgery

Cosmetic surgery is becoming more commonplace these days, but it is still an expensive endeavour for the majority of people. Cosmetic surgery loans are usually unsecured personal loans or specially-designed loans from medical lenders. You can use the loan amount to finance the surgery, plane tickets to and from your hospital destination, or to help tide you over while you are in recovery.

Pay for your next holiday away

Holiday loans are another financing option you have available to you. If you find your savings insufficient to fund your next holiday, you can look at a holiday loan to purchase your ticket, book your hotel, or even just have some extra spending money. Holiday loans are available as fixed or variable rate loans, with some offering repayment terms of up to seven years.

Get a loan for a jetski

If you’ve ever dreamed of getting a jet ski, you probably weren’t dreaming about the price tag. Jet skis can cost anywhere between $10,000 and $15,000, so some people choose to take out a jet ski loan to help them make their purchase. Jet ski loans are, again, similar to car loans and can be in secured or unsecured, fixed or variable, all depending on your preferences and needs.

What is dealer finance?

This is a type of loan that is offered directly through the car dealership where you purchase your vehicle. You may find the interest on these loans to be higher or lower than other personal or car loans depending on the residual balloon payment you’ll be paying at the end of the term.

    Hey, I have a couple defaults as I missed a payment and then it gets hard to catch up. I want to catch up, maybe debt consolidation is a possibility? Also, if I can get approved for a debt consolidation loan am I able to get a little loan on top of that to help me get on my two feet again with one easy payment.

      Hi Steph,

      Thanks for reaching out.

      Yes, debt consolidation might help you keep abreast with your loan payments but that will entirely depend on your financial situation. You may check this page and compare your debt consolidation loan options. As for getting a loan on top of the debt consolidation, that would entirely depend on the lender as to how much you can borrow. They will most likely base it on your ability to pay off the loan and your overall financial position.

      Moreover, our guide here will give you some idea on what steps to take to get of debt. You may also reach out to the associations listed on this page for free financial management advice.

      Just a friendly note, please make sure to check the lender’s eligibility criteria before you submit your application, as rejected loan applications can have a negative impact on your credit score.

      I hope this has helped.

      Kind regards,
      Liezl

      If you are looking to apply for a personal loan, you can compare your options on this page. Please do note that most unsecured loans have a maximum limit of up to $50,000 while the secured loans may allow you to borrow more than $50K.

    I have existing personal loan, I need to borrow another 10k what will I do?

    • Staff
      ElizabethSeptember 23, 2016Staff

      Hi Ram,

      You have the option of getting in contact with your current lender and asking for a “loan top-up”. Keep in mind this involves applying for another loan and repaying your existing loan with the approved funds. You can also apply for an unsecured loan with another lender and consolidating your debt into one account.

      I hope this helps,

      Elizabeth

      Hi Relma,

      I can’t recommend a specific lender as it depends more on your specific financial situation (your assets, debts, credit history, etc.). You can compare your car loan options on this page, and if you want to find out some more information on any lenders you can click through to the review pages by selecting the name of the lender. If you find a lender you want to apply with you can click “Go to Site” to submit your application.

      I hope this helps,

      Elizabeth

      BelindaFebruary 11, 2016Staff

      Hi Amar,

      Thanks for reaching out.

      If you’d like to estimate how much you can afford to borrow based on your income, you can use our borrowing power calculator.

      It’s also advised that you speak to a mortgage broker to discuss your borrowing capacity and your ability to qualify for a home loan based on your earning potential as well as your assets, credit history, and any existing debts that you have, among other factors.

      Thanks,
      Belinda

      Hi Tammy,

      Thanks for getting in touch. You can compare a range of lenders who offer secured personal loans for bad credit. These lenders will require you to put up some form of asset as collateral on your loan amount.

      If you applying for a joint account, there are other criteria you’ll need to meet.

      Cheers
      Matt

      Thanks for your question.

      You’ll need to get in touch with the lender you applied with in order to see the status of your loan. As a financial comparison site we cannot see any personal details of your accounts.

      Sorry I couldn’t be of more assistance.
