What are holiday loans?
Why use a holiday loan?
Everyone needs a holiday now and again – whether it’s to relax and unwind, or spend some quality time with your family. But holidays can be expensive, with most Aussies spending about $5,000 on average to take a holiday. If you’re a middle or low income earner, this means it can take some serious time to save up enough cash to afford a vacation. Instead, you can take out a small personal loan, go on the trip you’ve been dreaming of, and pay it back as you earn! It’s an easy way to pay for the following expenses in one go:
- Transport and car hires
- Spending money
- Travel insurance
How does a holiday loan work?
A holiday loan is pretty straightforward. All you need to do is figure out how much you need to borrow, apply online and you could have the money in your account that very same day. In most cases, funds arrive within one hour of approval.
Applications reviewed within 2 hours
At Red Tree Finance, we don’t let computers do the work – instead, we have an experienced team of assessors that personally review each application. They are trained to ensure you can comfortably pay off the loan you’re applying for, so we’ll never recommend a loan amount that isn’t within your means.
Once a decision has been made, you’ll be notified immediately. So whether you’re an avid holiday planner or more of a leave-it-to-the-last-minute kind of person, you can rest assured you’ll have the money you need in time.
Apply on weekends
Want to take a short intestate flight or a spur of the moment road trip and need some extra cash, fast? Our team is here to help. You can apply online for a cash loan on the weekend and have an outcome within a few hours.
Because our application process is 100% online, you can apply from any device and any location in Australia – as long as you have an internet connection.
Pay your way
No matter how you prefer to make your repayments, you can do it in a way that suits you – be it weekly, fortnightly or monthly.
We’re flexible about repayment schedules so that you can make your repayments to us once you’ve been paid by your employer. So there’s less stress all round.
Commitment to responsible lending
At Red Tree Finance we take our lending responsibilities seriously and are committed to lending responsibly.
We have no interest in providing a loan that cannot be repaid. Our Australia-based assessment team takes careful note of each customer’s individual circumstances before recommending a loan amount to ensure we don’t lend customers more than they can afford to repay.

This ultimately depends on your individual circumstances and financial situation. If you already have some debts you need to pay off, you might want to prioritise them first through a debt consolidation loan. You will also want to make sure you’re applying for a loan you can comfortably afford, because if you default on your loan or miss repayments, your credit score can be negatively impacted.
Typically a holiday loan with Red Tree Finance is set up with repayments over 12 months, however, this can vary between 12 and 24 months.
Absolutely you can! At Red Tree Finance, you can borrow up to $5,000. You could use this to fund your entire holiday or just cover your accommodation, flights or transport if you already have some money saved up.
