When it comes to the types of fast personal loans available, there are a few terms you’re going to want to get your head around.
- Secured fast personal loans: Secured fast personal loans are loans that are ‘secured’ by equity, such as a car, caravan, bike or boat. At Jacaranda, we require security for all loans above $2,000. Secured fast personal loans are also referred to as medium secured personal loans or large secured personal loans.
- Unsecured fast personal loans: Unsecured fast personal loans are typically smaller loans that don’t require security. The lender, however, assumes more risk for an unsecured loan, so the interest rates are higher. Jacaranda’s unsecured fast personal loans are available for any amount between $300 and $2,000.
- Fixed rate personal loans: A fixed rate loan refers to a fixed, agreed upon interest rate that will remain the same throughout the personal loan term.
- Variable rate personal loans: The interest rates for a variable rate personal loan increase and decrease throughout the personal loan term, depending on the economy.
Our fast personal loans range from $300 to $10,000 over a 12 to 24 month term. The name fast personal loans refers to our efficient loan application process and our quick approval time. We aim to approve any fast personal loan within 60 minutes. However, if we require more information or you have applied outside of business hours it will take longer.

You may be wondering; can I still apply for a fast personal loan with bad credit? Well, wonder no more. At Jacaranda Finance we are able to look at both your credit score and your current relationship with money to determine your eligibility for a loan. When you provide your details, our smart system obtains a read-only copy of your bank statements so we can take a closer look at your income and expenditure from the last 90 days. Therefore, if you’re after a fast approval personal loan no credit check you’re welcome to apply with us.

Bad credit unsecured personal loans are simply loans under $2,000 that are taken out in an effort to fix your credit score. If you do have bad credit, sometimes it can be tricky trying to get approved for an unsecured loan. This is because there is no security attached to the loan so the lender is taking a greater risk in lending to a borrower with bad creidit. Sometiomes it can be easier to get approved for secured loans over $2,000.
To help you understand your credit history, you can request a bad credit report from a company like Equifax that details the following information:
- Name, date of birth and address history
- Details of credit card inquiries you’ve made
- Court judgements
- Consumer credit accounts such as credit cards
- The length of your credit history
It’s important to note that your credit history file would expire if you have no activity over 5 years. This means not having applied for any credit or had any defaults.
Once positive credit reporting kicks in, lenders in Australia will start to report the good that you do to help lift your credit score. An example of this would be making your repayments on time, without having any defaults added to your loan account.
Whether your credit history is good, bad or nowhere, complete our simple, fast loan application as per usual and feel free to contact us if you have any questions about your bad credit loans. We will answer your enquiry each time you contact us between 8 am to 4 pm Monday to Friday. If you have a query outside of these times – simply send the team an email and we will get back to you the next business day.
