Hot tip! Don’t forget your travel insurance – with health cover

Holiday adventures can quickly become misadventures. You may want to consider taking out travel insurance with health cover before you depart, particularly if you’re travelling overseas. Some ANZ credit cards come with complimentary insurances, including travel insurance with health cover.

Why do people take out travel loans?

 

To get the best deals

The earlier you book flights and holiday deals the cheaper they often are. Secure your holiday with a personal loan and start paying it off before you go.

To cover a budget shortfall

You’ve booked your holiday, but you haven’t been able to save enough money before taking off. A personal loan can ensure your holiday plans aren’t disrupted.

To travel at short notice

Sometimes we may have to visit friends or family at short notice and don’t have the funds to do so. A personal loan can ensure you’re there when you’re needed most.

What’s better to take on holiday? A personal loan, credit card or both?

When it comes to funding your holiday, which is better? A personal loan, credit card or both? There is no simple answer; other than to say that it really depends on your circumstances.

Personal loans have lower interest rates

Personal loans generally have lower interest rates than credit cards and come with a set timeframe that you must repay the loan by. Some customers find it easier to meet their repayments when there’s a set repayment schedule, which is what a personal loan for travel offers.

Credit cards have interest-free periods

With a personal loan, you’ll be expected to start making repayments almost immediately, whereas some credit cards don’t require you to pay any interest on purchases for a set period-of-time. For example, all personal ANZ credit cards come with an interest-free period of up to 55 days on eligible purchases. However, once the interest-free period is over, credit cards will generally charge you a higher rate of interest than the average personal loan.

Credit cards incur cash advance fees

Most credit cards will charge you a cash advance fee when withdrawing cash. Given that you don’t want to be carrying around large sums of money, you might find yourself visiting ATMs more than you thought. A personal loan for travel, meanwhile, puts money directly into your bank account, which means you can use your debit card to withdraw money at ATMs and attract low, or no fees.

Know your fees please

Both credit cards and personal loans attract fees other than those already mentioned. Credit cards often come with annual fees, international transaction fees, over-the-limit fees, and direct debit dishonour fees. While personal loans can also come with fees, including administration, application and early/late repayment fees.

Travelling overseas? Here are some useful tips

If your holiday plans involve travelling overseas, here are some things to consider:

  • Make sure your passport is valid and you’ve investigated the visa requirements for the countries you plan on visiting
  • Not all countries are as “cashless” as Australia, so make sure you have a range of payment options such as cash, credit cards, debit cards and/or your smartphone to access your money
  • Make sure you know the expiry dates, withdrawal limits and credit limits for all your cards so that you don’t find yourself in a sticky situation
  • Register with the Federal Government website Smartraveller for travel advice, travel warnings and how to access emergency assistance
  • If you’re a customer of ours and plan on using your credit or debit card overseas, it’s important to let us know before you go so that our security feature ANZ FalconTM doesn’t stop any of your overseas transactions

Cashback offer

To receive the $500 cashback offer, a customer must:

(a) Apply for a new ANZ Personal Loan of $10,000 or more, or apply for an increase to their current ANZ Personal Loan which results in a total loan amount of $10,000 or more.

(b) Apply between May 15th 2024 and August 15th 2024.

(c) Draw down funds

There is a limit of one $500 cashback offer per eligible customer within an 18-month period. If a customer closes their ANZ Personal Loan account or nominated transaction account before the cashback payment is paid, they will be ineligible for this offer.


A customer can only receive one cashback during any 18-month period. For joint applications, only one cashback payment will be paid in total for the application and will be paid to the first listed applicant.

Customers can apply in branch, over the phone or online (www.anz.com.au/anzpersonalloan). For joint applications, customers must apply in branch.

The cashback amount will be paid into the transaction account in which the loan funds are disbursed within 120 days from the date of draw down.

If we do not have details for an appropriate account, the customer will be contacted via an outbound call.

Travel loans

A personal loan for travel can be used for purchases before you leave, such as flights, travel insurance and pre-booking accommodation, but it can also be used for purchases while you’re away, such as tours, food and drink and of course spending money.

All personal loans require you to start making regular repayments straight away. However, you can choose a repayment schedule that suits you best, such as weekly, fortnightly, or monthly.

General

ANZ Fixed Rate Personal Loans and ANZ Variable Rate Personal Loans are unsecured. This means you do not have to use an asset like your car or home as security to get a loan.

  

If you have an ANZ Variable Rate Personal Loan, you can pay off your loan early by making early or extra repayments without additional costs. This could help you to save on the interest you pay over the life of the loan. 

With an ANZ Fixed Rate Personal Loan, early repayment fees and charges, which may be significant, may apply if you make early or additional repayments or repay your loan early. Refer to Early Repayment Charges (PDF) and  ANZ Consumer Lending Terms and Conditions booklet (PDF).

  

ANZ Fixed Rate Personal Loan

An ANZ Fixed Rate Personal Loan gives you the certainty of fixed repayments for the term of your loan. This means if interest rates increase your repayments stay the same.

However, if you're looking to pay off your loan early, make extra repayments or increase your loan amount, early repayment fees and charges may apply. See Early Repayment Charges (PDF) and ANZ Consumer Lending Terms and Conditions booklet (PDF) for further information. You also do not have access to any early repayments made to the loan.

ANZ Variable Rate Personal Loan

With an ANZ Variable Rate Personal Loan, your interest rate may increase or decrease during the loan term, and so may your repayments. You can make early or extra repayments to pay off the loan faster (and save on interest charges), and redraw any extra money you’ve paid on your loan, without additional costs.

Applying for a personal loan

Yes, you can apply but your application for an ANZ Personal Loan will be subject to ANZ’s credit assessment criteria.

Your liabilities and other financial commitments, such as an existing personal loan with another lender, will be taken into account when we assess your application for an ANZ Personal Loan.

  

You'll need to provide information on:

  • your income amount and frequency
  • your assets
  • what existing financial commitments you have with ANZ and other financial institutions, such as personal loans, home loans or credit cards
  • your expenses, such as how much you spend on gas, electricity, insurances, food, transport and lifestyle expenses

We ask for this information so that we can verify your financial circumstances and assess your ability to repay an ANZ Personal Loan without substantial hardship. You can explore which ANZ Personal Loan may suit your needs by using our tools and calculators. 

  

If you’re not a permanent Australian resident, you may still be eligible to apply for an ANZ personal loan. You will be required to meet specific visa and income verification requirements. Valid visas include a range of working visas and business visas.  

Working visas

Includes all temporary visa subclasses that allow an individual to work in Australia. This typically includes holders of skilled category visas but can also include some family category visas.

Working holiday visas are not acceptable.

Business visas

Includes all temporary/provisional business visa subclasses that allow business people to establish or manage a new or existing business or invest in Australia. This generally includes holders of business owner, senior executive or investor category visas.

For more details please visit an ANZ branch or call 1800 339 410 to discuss your application. You can also find out what a particular visa entitles the holder to by visiting Department of Home Affairs website.

  

You don’t have to pay stamp duty on any of our personal loans.

But if you’re buying a car, you may need to pay stamp duty to the state or territory government to register it and to transfer its registration. The amount of stamp duty varies between states and territories, and also depending on the type of vehicle.

Remember that this money doesn’t go to us, but to the relevant state or territory government.

We tailor your interest rate based on our assessment of your credit score.

Where your credit history isn’t as long, or as good, or you have made many applications in a short period of time, this may negatively impact your credit score and you may be offered a rate at the higher end of the range.
