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.

      Hi Chaitee,

      You can use this borrowing power calculator to get a rough guide – add in any expected rent you would get on the investment property, and add your current home loan to the field that requests “other loans”.

      This will give you a general guide, but if you want a more accurate assessment, your best bet is to reach out to a bank or mortgage broker to see what your options are.

      Hope this helps!

      Hi Pam,

      Depending on your situation, you may be eligible for a 0% interest loan from Good Shepherd.

      Alternatively, these short-term finance loans may be helpful, although keep in mind the interest rates can be very high.

      One last thing is to be aware that there are a huge number of scams at the moment, so make sure any money you are sending is going to a trusted source. Generally, you shouldn’t have to send money to “unlock” any money coming your way.

      Hope this helps!
