Our Happy Customers

What can I use my emergency loan for?

Our fast cash loans can be used for almost anything. Here are some of the common reasons people apply for a fast personal loan:

Medical fees

Got an upcoming surgery booked but struggling with how you’ll pay for it? An emergency loan can cover these costs and take the stress out of an already stressful situation.

Veterinary bills

Whether your furry friend is needing a routine check-up or facing an unexpected health issue, an emergency loan will assist in giving you peace of mind when it comes to your finances.

Rental fees

Moving house? If you’ve found yourself tight with cash and in need of a rental deposit or bond, try an emergency loan to cover these costs to ensure a smooth transition into your rental property.

Car-related costs

Whether you were in a motor accident, or suddenly found yourself out of pocket for car repairs, an emergency loan can help you out.

Frequently Asked

How quickly can I get an emergency loan?

If you apply for a personal loan with us during business hours, our loan specialists will work hard to bring a quick outcome and, if approved, get you the money you need on the same day. Applicants can usually expect a response from Nifty on the same day* of applying.

What are the fees and charges?

Before you enter into a loan agreement, you will receive a credit guide that outlines all applicable fees and charges. Some of these may include interest charges, establishment fees, monthly fees, and late fees (if applicable).

How do I make repayments?

Generally, your repayments are aligned with your pay cycle and can be made on a weekly, fortnightly, or monthly basis. All you need to do is make sure you have enough money in your account when your repayments are due.

Does Nifty offer emergency cash loans without a credit check?

As a responsible lender, we must make reasonable enquiries to ensure the suitability of a loan for our customers. In line with this, we may conduct a credit check. However, we’re also an inclusive lender and believe that bad credit scores aren’t the be-all and end-all of your financial situation. Our team at Nifty considers the bigger picture by assessing your current relationship with money with read-only copies of your bank statements.
