Now I am in control and can sleep at night knowing I can afford my repayments and live a normal life, start saving again to repay the loan faster and be debt free sooner with no stress. Harmony approved me and the money was in my bank account the same day! All done on my phone in my lunch break. Simply amazing!

Common debt consolidation questions

View more
What is debt consolidation?

Debt consolidation is wrapping up multiple loans into a single loan with one regular repayment. Consolidating debt can help to make your life easier, as well as give you the chance to lower your interest payments and avoid penalties for missed payments.

Why do you need to know my goal when I go for a debt consolidation loan?

Knowing what your financial goals are means we can help you to meet them.

A debt consolidation loan from Harmoney could help you achieve one or more of the following:

  • pay less interest
  • make smaller repayments each month
  • simplify your debts with one easy-to-manage loan
Can I repay my debt consolidation loan early?

Yes. You can choose to pay back your debt consolidation loan early if you want to, with no early repayment fees. We encourage borrowers to pay off their loans sooner if they can, so they can save on interest costs and enjoy freedom from debt.

How many debts can I consolidate?

You can consolidate as many debts as you want to with a debt consolidation loan, as long as these are covered by the maximum loan amount. Each borrower’s loan limit will be based on their individual circumstances.

Should I use my mortgage to consolidate debt?

Taking advantage of a low mortgage rate can be appealing and is an option worth considering. However, any benefit a low rate may provide could be lost if the amount borrowed is paid back over a longer term with more interest payments. Consolidating debt using a home loan but continuing to make the minimum mortgage repayment could mean you end up paying a lot more for the privilege.

What is the difference between debt consolidation and refinancing?

Debt consolidation and refinancing are very similar, as in both cases, existing debt is transferred into a new debt so the borrower can take advantage of things like a better interest rate, lower repayments or a more flexible loan term.

This is usually referred to as refinancing if only one debt is involved, such as a property loan or other high value asset. Debt consolidation normally refers to multiple loans being refinanced, but this isn’t always the case – borrowers may also use a Harmoney debt consolidation loan to “refinance” a single debt.

About debt consolidation loans

Debt consolidation is useful for many people, but no financial option has a one-size-fits-all benefit.

Debt consolidation loans offer a more manageable option for people with multiple debts – from loans, credit cards or elsewhere – that helps them reduce stress and typically repay their debt more quickly and efficiently.

What is a debt consolidation loan?

Debt consolidation is a way to take multiple debts and combine them into a single loan. Although this combined loan will be bigger, you’ll only have one repayment date to remember and can sometimes attract a smaller interest rate.

For example, having multiple credit cards can be tricky to manage. They’ll likely have different interest rates and fees, and any the interest free periods may vary. On top of that, there’s the monthly repayments, which may have different due dates, and it may be difficult to understand how long it will take to pay off the debt.

Combining those credit cards into a single debt consolidation loan is easier to manage. And if you’re trying to get rid of debt, you’ll know when your last repayment is due. Just remember - if your goal with debt consolidation is to reduce debt it can help to reduce access to credit after consolidating - it might be time to cut up those cards, or reduce their limit to cover emergencies only.

How does debt consolidation work?

A debt consolidation loan provides money to pay off existing loans. So instead of having to meet multiple repayment dates throughout the month with various interest rates, you just have to make one monthly repayment.

Once debt is consolidated into one loan it can look daunting, but in reality it’s the same amount of debt - it’s just in one place. This can make things easier to manage, with fewer fees to pay.

Debt consolidation doesn’t remove debt, but it can help make it easier to manage.

If being debt-free is a goal, reducing access to credit after consolidating debt - by retiring credit cards or closing credit accounts - can be a good move.

How does a Harmoney debt consolidation loan work?

Like all personal loans on Harmoney, we look at your financial and personal situation when assessing your quote or loan application.

Part of the process involves us asking for details of all your existing loans. Should you approve Harmoney’s quote (including interest rate and repayment terms), we’ll then pay off the loans and debts listed in your loan agreement. This may be all your debts, or only some of them - it depends on the approved maximum loan limit.

When managing their Harmoney loan, borrowers can log onto the borrower portal, to see their total debt balance as well as their next repayment dates and totals.

Things to consider if you’re looking at consolidating debt

What are your current monthly repayments?

By working out how much you’re currently paying, you can compare your current situation with the quote Harmoney provides to see which is more favourable to you.

How much interest are you paying and what are the fees?

As well as how much you’re paying back, you should consider the interest charged on your loan. You may find a debt consolidation loan reduces your payments over time.

What is your credit like?

With a Harmoney loan, approved borrowers with an excellent credit history are generally offered lower interest rates. So it’s a good idea to develop or maintain good credit behaviour - reduce unused available credit, be selective about applying for credit, and keep up to date with all bill payments.

What income is available to service a loan?

It’s important to show you have enough income to service a loan, above and beyond other outgoings you have. Therefore, it can help to reduce any outgoings that aren’t necessary. Not only will it leave more in your pocket, it will be available to help service a loan should you need one.

Debt consolidation vs refinancing

Debt consolidation and refinancing are very similar – they’re both ways to assess current debt levels and to restructure that in your favour.

In most cases, refinancing refers to just a single debt – like your mortgage – while debt consolidation is about combining multiple debts into one loan.

Debt consolidation options

There are different ways to consolidate debt. Here are three of the most popular:

Debt consolidation personal loan

A personal debt consolidation loan means you take out a new loan to replace your existing debt.

On Harmoney, all loans are unsecured (meaning you don’t risk any of your assets when you take one out) and you can choose between repayments over three or five years.

When looking at debt consolidation loans, be vigilant with terms and conditions. Among these, you want to make sure you understand the interest rate, any fees and what your repayments will look like.

Refinancing by putting the debt on your mortgage

Because mortgage rates tend to be lower than other loans, some people like to increase their mortgage to pay off other debts.

As always, the devil is in the detail. Even though a mortgage may have a lower interest rate than a personal loan, because the loan term is much longer, you may end up paying a lot more in interest fees.

Credit card balance transfer

Many credit cards offer a low-interest or even an interest-free introductory offer, which entices some people to move their debt to a new card.

However, once that offer is over, the interest rates on credit card debt are some of the highest on the market and, if the debt isn’t paid off quickly, it can quickly become very expensive.

What kind of debt can be consolidated?

Almost any kind of debt can be consolidated into a personal loan on Harmoney.

Some of the most common debts include personal loans, credit cards, car financing and buy-now-pay-later balances.

When applying for a debt consolidation loan on Harmoney, you’ll be asked to list the debts you want to include in your loan. These will be reviewed and you’ll be told which can and can’t be included.

How to get the best from a debt consolidation loan

Reduce your monthly repayments

When you have multiple loans and credit cards, it’s likely that you have lots of repayment dates. The more admin you have to take care of, the easier it is to miss a repayment and face a late fee.

With a debt consolidation loan, you place all of your debt into one loan. It’s a lot more manageable for many people because there’s just one monthly repayment to make.

Pay it off sooner and save

Debt consolidation loans are normally paid off quicker than multiple loans, for two reasons.

One is that there is a fixed end date. You’ll know that so long as you meet all your repayments, a loan through Harmoney will be paid off within three or five years. With a credit card, there is no end date attached to debt, so repayments and interest accrual can continue indefinitely.

As well as that, with just one payment to make, it’s easier to chip away at your debt and even pay it off ahead of schedule. Without having to hold anything back for other debts, you can add a little bit onto your monthly payment or put a lump sum towards reducing the total.

Reduce your credit limits

Each credit card you own adds to the amount of total credit you can access. This can work against you when applying for loans or mortgages – even if the balance on all of them is zero.

Reducing the amount of credit you can access (by retiring credit cards, for example) or taking out a debt consolidation loan, could go towards building an even stronger credit history and opening the doors to more financial products and service in future.
