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.
- 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 below $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 $4,600 over a 12 to 24 month term. The name fast personal loans refers to our efficient loan application process and our quick approval time.

You may be wondering; can I still apply for a fast personal loan with bad credit. Well, wonder no more, at Jacaranda we are able to look at both bad credit and your current relationship with money, as long as you have at least 90 days of banking history. If you’re after a fast approval personal loan no credit check you’re welcome to apply with us. While we’ll do a credit check, we’ll also take a look at how you manage money at the moment, so don’t let past mistakes stop you from investing in your future.
A bad credit loan can damage your ability to receive a loan from some speciality lenders. Jacaranda’s bad credit loans service your financial needs even with a bad credit.
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 you 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 8am to 6pm 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.
Can I still apply if I receive Centrelink payments?
Yes! We access our loans on affordability and suitability, so we don’t automatically discount you because you are receiving government benefits.
Are there any restrictions on loan amount for my first personal loan?
Applicants who receive Centrelink as their sole source of income will be restricted to no more than a $1,000 loan for their first loan.
Do you require documents when applying for fast personal loans?
Most of the time, no! At Jacaranda, we utilise the latest and safest banking and identification technology that can obtain 90 days of bank statements online in seconds and confirm your identity online. Outstanding circumstances may require you to supply a hard copy of these documents.
