Now Boarding! Take off Sooner with Our Low Rate Travel Finance

Aussies love to travel! Whether it’s a major overseas adventure or an interstate holiday, most Australians have dreams and/or plans to travel somewhere at some stage, sometime soon. But putting the plan into action, turning a dream into reality entails having the funds to cover expenses. Accumulating the savings to cover a great trip can take a long time.

We assist dreamers and planners to become travellers sooner with our affordable travel financing options. Enabling travellers to pay for expenses through loan options, individually sourced from across our vast lender base and including our signature best interest rates, flexible terms and workable repayment schedules.

Whether it’s a bucket-list adventure, seeing your favourite team in the Grand Final, experiencing an Open, World Cup, or Grand Prix, a concert or festival, a short-notice destination wedding, a spur-of-the-moment cruise decision, or you simply haven’t managed to save the full amount required by the departure date, speak with us about the options we can offer for funding your travel.

Experts to Handle Travel Loans Eligibility Criteria and Application Process

Funding your travel will entail taking on a personal loan. These types of loans are regulated by Consumer Credit laws in regard to eligibility criteria. This includes being over the age of 18, having a reliable source of income and employment and providing lenders with documents and details of assets, income debts and expenses.

Lenders also have varying criteria for approving applications and making offers. We know the matrix used by our lenders and can match each traveller with the right lender. Holiday loans are typically unsecured personal loans as the purpose of the funding is not tangible goods that can be used as security for the lenders. With no major assets or collateral required, the lender's assessment of your credit score and ability to repay the loan will determine approval, the interest rate and borrowing limit.

Your Jade consultant will be handling the application processing for you with the lender that is best suited to your profile and requirements. Applications can be made online or over the phone with many approvals received in 24 hours. Once approved, the money is transferred to your bank account for you to use for your travel expenses.

Open Up Possibilities with Our Travel Finance Opportunities

The concept of paying for travel through financing options is not new. Most travellers will use credit cards to cover some of their expenses and pay off the balance over time on their return. However, with a greater awareness of interest rates and the emergence of new lending products, there is a growing trend for travellers to consider vacation loans.

Compare Jade Travel Finance with Other Payment Options

Accessing an Unsecured Personal Loan through Jade can compare extremely favourably with other options available to fund travel plans. The alternatives are typically saving, using credit cards, travel provider funding or short-term payday-type loans. Saving can take considerable time, and savings accounts attract modest interest earnings. Credit cards can attract higher interest rates than personal loans. Short-term payday-type loans can have higher rates and shorter repayment terms. Some travel providers may offer interest-free periods, but after that period has expired, a much higher interest rate than with an unsecured personal loan may apply.

Practical Tips for Paying for Travel through Financing Options

Funding your travel with a personal loan can make travel more accessible and sooner. However, with the interest charged on the loan, the overall outlay may be higher than using savings. Taking a responsible approach to planning the travel and the holiday loan may result in finalising the commitment and starting plans for the next travel experience sooner.

  • Consider earmarking what you have been allocating for saving for travel for the loan repayments.
  • Be confident of handling repayments on return. The first monthly loan repayment is scheduled one month after settlement.
  • Make additional repayments to pay off the loan sooner and reduce the total interest on the loan.
  • Budget the trip, seeking cost-effective options where possible.
  • Source the best deals on tickets and accommodation, taking advantage of package discounts.
  • If travelling overseas, take exchange rates into consideration.
  • Use the most cost-effective credit or debit card while travelling to avoid high foreign transaction fees.
