What are weekend loans Australia?

Weekend loans are a form of personal loan specifically designed for weekend use. Nifty Loans offers personal loans for a variety of expenses, falling into two categories: medium loans and large loans.

Loan type Loan amount Repayment terms
Medium loan $2,500 to $4,600 9 to 24 months
Large loan $5,000 to $10,000 9 to 24 months

Our large loans are our secured loan option. This means that an asset, which may include a car, motorbike or caravan, must be attached to the loan as security. This allows us to continue to offer competitive rates on our loans. Our medium loans can be secured or unsecured, while our small loans are unsecured. If you have more questions, please refer to our costs page.

Weekend cash loans with bad credit

Nifty Loans is an online lender which not only allows us to be speedy lenders, we are also able to be more lenient in our credit lending requirements than traditional lenders. We pride ourselves on financial inclusivity and provide bad credit loans to Australians in need of credit that have a bad credit history. We use bank statements to conduct a thorough financial assessment; this is to ensure that each applicant can reasonably manage their requested loan. If we find that an applicant can reasonably manage to repay their loan, even if they have bad credit, we may be able to offer them a loan.

We are responsible lenders; we follow the responsible lending guidelines set by ASIC. We must conduct credit checks on every loan applicant as part of our commitment to responsible lending. However, a bad credit score is not the only factor that will be considered in your application.


What are the fees and charges?

The fees and charges will vary depending on your individual circumstances. If you have a bad credit score, you will likely be offered a higher interest rate than an applicant with good credit. Additionally, each loan option has different fees, which may include interest or monthly fees. Your loan contract will include all fees associated with your loan.

How much can I borrow?

You can apply to borrow any amount from $2,500 to $10,000. Your repayments will vary depending on your loan terms and how much you borrow.

Do you provide weekend loans unemployed?

We can provide loans to unemployed people up to $10,000 for unemployed Australians currently receiving Centrelink benefits. As long as you have been receiving your government benefits for at least 90 days and meet the rest of our eligibility criteria, we may be able to provide you with a same day loan.
