What is debt consolidation?
Debt consolidation rolls all of your outstanding credit cards, hire purchases, and other debts into a single loan. No more hassle. No more stress. Just a single, easy-to-manage repayment, often with a lower interest rate. The sooner you consolidate your debts, the sooner you could start saving money.
Looking to apply? At Unity we don’t just focus on how the numbers look on paper, we listen to you. We can take the stress out of your debt by reducing monthly repayments and helping you to pay it off quicker. With your debts sorted, you'll be free to invest, save, or just relax and live your best financial life.
When applying for a loan it's important to consider all of the costs involved. Below is an example of the total costs included over the term of a secured vehicle loan:
Set up over a term of 7 years (366 weeks) at 9.90% p.a. interest = weekly repayments of $77.26
This example is calculated using a floating [secured] rate of 9.90% p.a. over a 7 year term. Total cost of borrowing over loan term would be $28,122.22 (indicative only). This example is not an offer from Unity. How much you can borrow and repayments depend on your personal circumstances. Secured floating interest rates from 9.90% - 18.90%. T&Cs apply. $200 approval fee + other fees apply. View a full list of rates and fees.
