Can anyone apply for a holiday loan?

To apply for a travel loan in Australia, you need to:

  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Be an Australian citizen, Permanent Resident or New Zealand citizen
  • Have full-time or permanent part-time employment
  • Have photo ID documents available, e.g. your passport or Australian driver’s licence
  • Not have defaults, judgments or bankruptcies recorded on your credit report

To apply for a travel loan in New Zealand, you need to:

  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Be a New Zealand citizen or Permanent Resident
  • Have a stable income

Applying for a travel expenses loan is no different from most types of personal loans on Harmoney, and the process is fully online.

What expenses can a holiday loan cover?

A holiday loan can pay for as much of your trip as you need it to, up to your borrowing limit. This can include flights, accommodation, tours, food and drink, accessories, travel insurance and, of course, spending money. Let us know how much you need for your loan when you apply.

Can I start repaying my loan after my holiday?

You’re required to start making regular repayments on your travel loan right away, so this can’t be delayed until after your holiday. But you can choose the repayment schedule that best suits you - weekly, fortnightly, or monthly.

Can I cancel my loan if my holiday is cancelled?

Harmoney loans can be cancelled within a “cooling-off” period of 7 days of the loan starting. You must notify us that you want to cancel and pay back your borrowed amount in full. We’ll refund your establishment fee if you’re still in the cooling-off period.

If it’s been longer than 7 days since your loan was started, you can choose to make an early repayment and pay back your remaining balance in full (including any interest owing at that time). We won’t charge for early loan repayment, but we can’t refund any fees or interest.

What if I need to borrow more?

If you ended up spending more on your trip than you’d planned, you may be eligible for a Harmoney loan top-up to consolidate debt if you’ve been making repayments on your current loan for at least 6 months and you have good credit.

Can I pay back my loan early?

Yes. We encourage borrowers to get out of debt sooner by not charging any fees for early loan repayment. Some people who borrow money to book flights and other expenses in advance start paying back their loan before their holiday even starts so they can enjoy their travels with less debt.

About holiday loans

If you’ve been dreaming of a holiday and the only thing holding you back from booking is the cost, a travel expenses loan can get you travel ready.

Everything from flights and hotels to food and drinks can be covered up to your loan limit. Before you book, here are some important factors to consider when choosing a holiday loan.

Unsecured holiday loan

An unsecured loan does not require collateral, such as a vehicle or property, to secure the loan. If you are unable to make the repayments on your unsecured holiday loan, you will pay extra fees but won’t have your assets seized, making them a safer option.

All Harmoney loans are unsecured.

Secured holiday loan

A secured loan requires collateral as security for the loan. This type of loan often has a lower interest rate, however if you default on the loan the provider can then repossess the asset you put up as security to recover the cost of the loan.

We do not offer secure loans at Harmoney,

Holiday package loans

You may find some travel agents who offer holiday package loans to seal the deal. Make sure to check all the details of the offer – such as loan term, interest rates and any fees – to make sure you’re getting a good deal.

Fixed or variable interest

A vital factor to consider when choosing a holiday loan is the type of interest rate. Interest rates can either be variable or fixed rate. A variable interest rate changes according to the market rate, meaning your repayments on the loan could be different from month to month. A fixed rate meanwhile remains the same regardless of external changes, meaning you’ll pay the same rate each month.

Harmoney loans are always fixed rate, we do not offer variable interest rates as we prefer our borrowers to have certainty.
