Rex, from Altona, Victoria, needed to get a small personal loan to help him pay for a trip to New Zealand. He wanted less than $5,000 but didn’t want the risks attached to a credit card, so he focused on looking for a small personal loan.

Fair Go Finance came to the top of his list for a finance provider that could do small personal loans for holiday expenses.

Rex completed the online application and was more than happy to use his car as security for the loan. Before he knew it, the loan was conditionally approved and it allowed Rex to feel confident he could get the money, after providing a few documents via fax.

“Thanks for the excellent service, it was very efficient and quick!” said Rex when we asked him what he thought of the loan process.

Fair Go Finance provides small personal loans from $500 – $10,000 for a range of personal purposes such as holidays, consolidating debts, cars, outstanding bills, furniture and tenant bonds.

The Benefits of a small online personal loan with Fair Go Finance are:

  • Once you complete the easy online application, you’ll know if your tracking successfully or not by a prompt screen.
  • You don’t have to fax or manually sign any paperwork;
  • You’ll be able to provide all your documents during the online application, including your ID details, bank statements and payslip;
