What’s the difference between a fixed and variable rate loan?

A fixed rate loan has an interest rate that’s fixed for the term of your loan.  It will not change – helping you plan your finances around set repayments.

A variable rate loan has an interest rate that’s variable – i.e. it could go up or down over the course of the loan term.

Our variable loan also has a redraw feature, which means if you need access to cash, you can withdraw any extra repayment amounts you’ve made at any time1.

~Repayment calculator & assumptions: Any calculations made by you using this calculator is intended as a guide only.  It is for illustrative purposes only and is based on the accuracy of the information provided.  The calculation is not an offer of credit. The amount you can borrow may vary once you complete a loan application and all the details relevant to our lending criteria are captured and verified.  The calculations should not be relied on for the purpose of making a decision whether to apply for a personal loan.

Weekly repayments are calculated by dividing $1000 by 4 and rounding up if required ($1000 ÷ 4 = $250).
