We’ve had to follow Government directions throughout 2020 to keep us all safe from COVID-19. Lockdown rulings, restrictions, border closures, venue capacity limitations – Federal, state and territory Governments put it out there, and for the most part we obliged. But now there is a new ‘direction‘ from the Federal Government that is still related to coronavirus but represents something far more appealing and acceptable – the want us to go on holiday for the sake of the economy!
Oh yes, bring it on! Tourism Australia has a campaign entitled ‘Holiday Here This Year’ which is designed to inspire (who needs inspiration to holiday after months of lockdown) Aussies to get out into our regions and support the tourism and other businesses that have been seriously affected by the coronavirus pandemic. With international travel, both incoming and outgoing, on the never never timetable for now, holidaying in Australia is the way to go.
The new campaign features comedian Hamish Blake and his partner Zoe Foster-Blake and highlights places, destinations, experiences and adventures in each state of Australia. Tourism Australia MD, Phillipa Harrison said the goal of the campaign is to urge Australians to provide a boost to areas that have been impacted by both the bushfires of 2019/20 and of course by the coronavirus pandemic travel restrictions.
The campaign was originally launched in early 2020 but revised and re-launched in October 2020 to reflect the changed scenario.
While Simon Birmingham, Federal Tourism Minister, is encouraging people to travel by air to these destinations, we know that our Jade Finance customers might like to holiday their way – by boat, caravan, car or even motorbike. So we’re making that a possibility with great loan offers on car loans, boat loans, motorbike loans and caravan finance.
Many of the suggested destinations and experiences included in the Holiday Here This Year campaign can be accessed by road and some by water so you can plan your personalised itinerary.
Holiday Here Destinations
The campaign website https://www.australia.com/en/facts-and-planning/useful-tips/coronavirus-travel-safety.html has a section for road trips and self-drive holidays which is an ideal planning port for car, caravan and motorbike travellers. Owners of trailer boats can also join in the action.
Some of the suggestions include:-
- Huon Valley in Tasmania – abundant food and magnificent wines.
- Yass Valley in Victoria – another area with loads of local food production and wine to sample and purchase.
- Hunter Valley in NSW – more wine and more food in another state. Why not put this one together with Huon, Yass and Adelaide Hills and do a national food and wine tour?
- Avon Valley in WA – while we’re covering valley holidays, this one takes you just an hour from Perth but to a wonderful world of country escapism.
- Canberra and the Snowy Mountains – getaway from Sydney and visit the national capital and head on to the Snowies. Whilst in Canberra, view the latest exhibition at the National Gallery of Australia and the recent extensions to the National War Memorial.
- The Whitsundays including Airlie Beach – idyllic and abundant, there is so much to do and see in this area of Queensland. Drive yourself, take your boat to launch and explore the reefs and fishing and enjoy!
Getaway Loan Offers
To make your getaway a reality you’ll need that car, caravan, boat or motorbike. That’s where we come in with cheap car loans, caravan, bike or boat finance to allow you to follow the Government directive and holiday!
For consumer goods purchases, the most popular form of loan we offer is the Secured Loan. Jade Finance Secured Loans follow a standard and widely accepted format for personal consumer loans. The goods are offered as security against the loan and the borrower repays the loan in equal monthly repayments over the term of the loan.
Unlike the sometimes distant and generalised loans offered by some banks and finance companies, Jade Finance offers a highly personalised loan service. You are assigned a consultant who brokers your loan to best suit your requirements.
Your consultant sources the best interest rate from our large lender panel which then forms the basis for us to structure you the cheapest loan possible. The interest rate is fixed so you don’t have to worry about reviewing and revising your loan as the official cash rate changes as per the RBA’s decisions. The repayments are fixed and in equal instalments so you can budget ahead to allow funds for experiences while you holiday.
Making Holiday Plans
Jade Finance acts quickly in response to your request for a loan and can provide quick quotes, fast loan approvals and prompt loan settlement. So if you want to move quickly with buying that car for your road trip or other goods, we can assist.
With that new car, boat or a Cheap Caravan Finance, you can enjoy great holidays across Australia for years to come, supporting the hard-hit regions and having a great time on the way.
