What are debt consolidation loans?
A debt consolidation loan is a way to merge all of your existing debts, including personal loans and credit card debt, into a single loan. By doing so, you won’t have multiple annual fees or interest charges, and you can manage everything with one regular repayment.
Advantages of a debt consolidation loan
There are a number of advantages to getting a debt consolidation loan:
- Having one recurring repayment is easier to manage than multiple repayments
- It can save you money by paying less interest and fewer fees
- You’ll have greater control of your finances and a better idea of when you’ll be debt free
- You can improve your credit score because you’ll be able to make on-time repayments
How our debt consolidation loans work
Having multiple debts can be stressful and overwhelming, but it’s also nothing to be ashamed of. According to the Bureau of Statistics, the average Australian household has a personal debt of $17,700 and that doesn’t even include credit cards. However, with more debt, comes more fees, charges and interest rates. That’s why a debt consolidation loan can help to simplify things.
Easy, regular payments
When you apply and get approved for a cash loan at Red Tree Finance, you can choose the way you pay to align with when your employer pays you. Whether that’s weekly, fortnightly or monthly, it’s no problem for us. And if you’re ready to pay your online loan off earlier, our customer care team can provide you with payout details and you won’t be charges any early exit fees.

Frequently Asked QuestionsSee All
If you’re struggling to juggle multiple debts, a debt consolidation loan can positively impact your credit score. Since you only have one loan to stay on top of, you’re more likely to pay on time and avoid missed payments. However, consolidating your debts doesn’t automatically improve your credit – and if you miss payments or default on the loan, your credit score could be harmed.
Not at all! At Red Tree Finance, you can apply for a debt consolidation loan in Australia within minutes. The application process is 100% online and you can have a decision within 2 hours.
There are a few downsides to consolidating your debt, such as:
- It doesn’t automatically improve your financial situation. You still have debts to pay.
- Your consolidated debt may take longer to repay, depending on the interest and loan term.
- Missing payments can negatively impact your credit score.
