At Debt Consolidation Australia, we offer hassle-free loans for all Australians wanting to pay multiple creditors. We can help untangle your complicated finances and reduce the stress of remembering who to pay and when. With over 20 years of finance experience, our team believes that everyone should have the chance to simplify life and have a sustainable financial future.
Debt consolidation is as simple as it sounds. It is the process of combining all of the money you owe into one single loan. Essentially, it is a form of refinancing. All of your existing financial commitments are combined together into a single, larger debt with different terms.
For example, you might have 4 debts (such as credit cards, store cards, car finance, personal loans) which amount to $40,000 in total, each with different (often high) interest rates. As an Australian, bank alternative lender we have debt consolidation loan products that can take all of these individual outstanding debts and combine them into one simple loan of $40,000. This debt consolidation loan would have new repayment terms.
If you combine your credit cards, store cards and/or finance into one new balance then usually, the new debt consolidation loan interest rate would be lower. This can mean you could save a significant amount of money each year. Additionally, the debt consolidation loan repayment length is established on terms you can manage sustainably. This will depend on how quickly you would like to pay the debt off and how much you want to pay regularly. As well as this, you will be free from your previous creditors. As such the new lender manages the entire amount for you, so you only have to refer to this lender and nobody else.
No more financial chaos, no more debt collectors chasing up repayments, no more arrears or defaults.
By gathering all of your existing debts together into one new package, you can gain greater financial control. Multiple debts can be confusing and stressful, but tidying these loans into one single repayment provides a much clearer picture moving forward.
The Debt Consolidation process is simple. You take out a new personal loan to cover your existing debts, and then repay the new loan back over a set term. This larger, single loan takes your current creditors out of the picture, often with a lower-interest-rate. This means no more hassle or confusion from managing multiple creditor payments and makes keeping on top of the repayments much easier.
A debt consolidation loan can also help with your household budgeting. Instead of having to make the minimum repayments as many people do on credit cards, leading to very high interest rates, you instead make set repayments that cover both the outstanding loan amount with interest, which you know will end at a certain date. This is a far clearer and easier way of making payments.
Let’s take your phone bill for example. You have a single, set amount to repay each month which you have to repay for an agreed amount of time.
It’s that simple!
Managing multiple credit cards can be a lot to keep up with, so coordinating your household cash flow ends up being very complicated. Additionally, if, like the example above, you have a credit card with a significantly high interest-rate, you could be paying a lot each month just to cover the interest, let alone chipping away at the outstanding balance. The result of this is that you’ll be paying off the balance, plus interest and not incurring late fees and penalties if you stick to the program.
All of your existing credit card and creditor balances can be combined into one, easy to manage loan, with a new rate (usually lower), all on your terms.
All of your current financial obligations, including outstanding interest, will be paid outright, so you can breathe a sigh of relief.
