  • Line of credit or overdraft

A personal overdraft or line of credit is a small funding option that is usually offered by banks to their existing customers. Overdrafts are attached to your transaction account and allow you to overdraw up to a limit, which you then repay at a variable rate, whereas a line of credit works in the same way but sits in a separate account. Both can usually be organised by your bank within the hour.

Lenders that offer this type of loan: Westpac offers a Flexi Loan that allows you to access up a line of credit 24/7. The interest is paid on the outstanding balance and is charged at a variable rate.

  • In-branch applications

Some lenders offer automatic approval and provide same-day funding to customers who apply in a branch. You will generally need to bring a form of identification, bank statements and details of your finances including your income, assets, credit accounts and debts. The bank can then verify your documents in person.

Lenders that offer this type of loan: MyState offers instant decisions and same-day loan facilities for people who drop into a MyState branch. This includes secured personal loans, unsecured personal loans and overdrafts.

  • Same-day loans with personal assets as security

This is quite a unique type of personal loan, with lenders allowing you to use a valuable asset as security. Types of assets can include jewellery, gold, watches, antiques, luxury boats, luxury cars and fine wine collections. The lender usually requires a valuation of the product and then offers a loan amount based on the valued amount. These type of loans usually have a quick turnaround time, with some lenders offering the loan amount on the same day.

Lenders that offer this type of loan: Assetline is a lender that specialises in these type of loans and offers same-day funding after an ID check has been completed and your valuables appraised. Assetline offers loans of varying amounts for up to three months.

Short-term loans that offer same-day approval

If you have weighed up your options and are considering a same day personal loan, but don't have perfect credit history, a short-term loan might be an option. Compare loans below.

Warning about Borrowing

payday-warningDo you really need a loan today?*

It can be expensive to borrow small amounts of money and borrowing may not solve your money problems.

Check your options before you borrow:

  • For information about other options for managing bills and debts, ring 1800 007 007 from anywhere in Australia to talk to a free and independent financial counsellor
  • Talk to your electricity, gas, phone or water provider to see if you can work out a payment plan
  • If you are on government benefits, ask if you can receive an advance from Centrelink: Phone: 13 17 94

The Government's MoneySmart website shows you how small amount loans work and suggests other options that may help you.

* This statement is an Australian Government requirement under the National Consumer Credit Protection Act 2009.

Things to consider

Same-day personal loans can seem like a quick and convenient option to access money, but their fast turnaround time does not mean that you should give these loans any less consideration than you would other loans. You need to think about your personal financial situation and your ability to pay back the loan before you apply. You should also consider the features of the loan, such as if it has a fixed or variable rate and your repayment options, to see if the loan meets your borrowing needs.

It may also be worthwhile to consider other forms of credit as possible options. For example, would it be cheaper to put this expense on your credit card or to take out a personal loan?

How to apply

To apply for any of the same-day personal loans offered on this page, simply follow the secure link to the lender’s website. The eligibility conditions will differ between lenders but generally you will need to be over the age of 18, a permanent resident and have a good credit rating.

      Unfortunately the lenders on this page can only lend in Australian dollars and you’ll only be eligible if you’re currently residing in Australia.

    I would like to consolidate my loans into one personal loan and my problem is I have too many enquiries on my Credit file.
    I don’t have any default but instead of making $1000 a week payment I would like to stretch it for min 2 years. My problem is no one wants to help as I am making heavy payments but the creditors are looking from different angle.
    I earn $2500 a week and I would like to have a peace of mind instead of worrying about making payment every week. Is there anyone who can help me please let me know.

      Hi Andrew,

      Thanks for your question.

      You can compare a range of debt consolidation loans on this page, though you may want to wait 3-6 months before you apply again. Lenders see borrowers who have too many inquiries on their credit file as risky.

      You may want consider free financial counselling, if you would like this option you can call the Financial Counsellors hotline on 1800 007 007. It is open from 9:30am to 4pm, Monday to Friday.
