Broken down car? Dog’s gotten sick? Maybe spilt a cheeky glass of red all over your laptop? No one likes having to fork out expenses for those unexpected incidents. At Nifty, we know just how expensive emergencies can be. So when they do happen, and you find yourself falling short on funds to pay for it – that’s where our emergency loans come in!
Our emergency cash loans are designed for when these nasty incidents pop up. Did we mention they are 100% online, paperless and quick – all the ingredients for when you need money fast! Now let’s get to work helping you cover those nasty expenses!
Before we delve further into our emergency loans, we thought we’d introduce ourselves first. We are Nifty Loans, an award-winning online lending company that more Ausies are turning to for a reliable and affordable loan service.
At Nifty, we know there’s a pretty bad stigma associated with our industry. That’s why we’re here to change that for the better by acting as a reliable and trustworthy lender to help you move forward with your life. We use honesty, transparency and great service to prove that we are the right lender for you.
Emergency loans are personal loans provided for a specific need. What specific needs? You guessed it – financial emergencies! We know, not only are financial emergencies not fun to experience, they’re not very fun to talk about either. But the reality is that most of us will experience them at some point in our lives, and unfortunately, they can occur when you’re not exactly flushed with cash.
Emergency loans can provide that much needed leg up, so you can get your life back on track. Nifty can approve personal loans for emergencies. Not only that, but we can give you an outcome in 60 minutes!* We understand that when you need money for an emergency, you need it fast!
If you apply within AEST business hours, our team of loan specialists can offer you an emergency loan and approve your application on the same day. Some applicants receive a yes or no answer from Nifty Loans within 60 minutes of completing their application.
Yes! We offer emergency loans to those who have bad credit. At Nifty Loans, we view your credit history as just that – history! We focus on the bigger picture by reviewing your current finances to see how you’re going to repay the loan. So, if you’ve got bad credit, you could still be approved for a personal loan with Nifty.
Yes. Nifty are committed to responsible lending, which is why we conduct credit checks on all assessments. However, your credit score isn’t the sole basis for approval. We are more focused on your current relationship with your finances. This is why we ask for a copy of your most recent bank statements.
Our team will obtain a read-only copy of your bank statements to get a better idea of your spending habits, income and existing financial commitments in order to determine whether or not you will be able to repay a loan. If we can see you have been receiving a regular income for at least three months, and have been keeping up with any other repayments you may have, you could still be approved for a loan.
Yes! At Nifty, we believe you shouldn’t be penalised for being on Centrelink. We consider Centrelink as a regular source of income. If your loan repayments will comfortably fit with your Centrelink income, you could stand every chance of being considered for approval.
Our team will assess your application and do their best to match you with a loan that suits your financial situation. This doesn’t mean you’re guaranteed to get a loan. However, we can guarantee we will always give you a fair and just assessment.
Repaying your emergency loan couldn’t be easier! Our repayments work by setting up a direct debit, so that your repayments will come out of your account automatically. We will ask you to select a day to deduct repayments. They can be set up to come out of your account on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis – it is entirely up to you.
Typically, we’ll align your repayments with your pay cycle. Selecting the right payment structure ensures that you always have enough money in your account. So, as long as you have enough cash in your account to cover the payments, they will just come out automatically. No need to set reminders only to forget to make the payment. Just make sure you don’t spend your entire paycheck the moment you get paid!
We have a list of eligibility criteria that you’ll need to meet before you apply. To be eligible you need to:

No one can predict the possibility of running into a financial emergency. Which is why it’s important you have a solid action plan for when such instances arise. To help with this, we’ve listed some of the most common emergencies that could be helped with an emergency loan:
Whether you’ve been made redundant or need to resign, sudden loss of employment can be financially devastating. If you don’t have a healthy annual leave or termination payment, you could very easily land in some hot water when it comes to your ongoing bills. Nifty can provide emergency cash loans to people who receive Centrelink benefits.
If you or a loved one require immediate or long-term medical attention, treatment expenses can be tough to handle. Although Medicare covers most healthcare costs, there are some treatments that are completely out of pocket, such as ongoing therapy (physio/speech/podiatry etc.), dental treatments and home nursing.
Unexpected car expenses strike without warning and can be a big blow to your finances if you’re dependent on your vehicle. Cars are already a large drain on your pocket with their regular running costs, but throw engine failure into the mix and it could lead to a financial disaster. This is even worse if you are involved in an accident.
We’re hoping you now have all the information you need to make an informed decision about whether or not an emergency loan is the right thing for you. If you still have more questions, check out our FAQ page or send us a message, here.
