Swift loans - Fast, affordable short-term loans

Swift loans offer short-term loans to our clients that are fast and easy to obtain. We know that lending money can sometimes be very stressful, especially if you are applying for a loan from the bank.

They ask you all sorts of embarrassing questions and make you jump through all sorts of hoops to get them to grant you a loan. You need to visit the bank branch and sit in queues for hours wasting your time and your money.  After all that they decline your application and you need to start the entire process all over again.

At Swift loans, we realize that when you need a loan you need the money as quickly as possible with as little fuss as possible. Our entire short term loan application process can be completed online from your car, office or home anywhere that you have an internet connection and we will give you a decision within a few minutes if your application form is approved or declined so that you don’t need to sit around and wait for the outcome.

What if my bank isn’t listed on the login page?

Our application process is 100% online that means that we do not accept bank statements that are faxed or e-mailed to us. If your bank is not listed, please contact us so that we can add it to the list. Our team is constantly adding new banks to the website for your added convenience.

Credit check

Swift loans are a responsible lender and so to ensure that you are able to afford the loan, we will run a credit check in some instances. If your credit score is not ideal that does not mean that your loan application will be declined. By thinking differently, we are able to judge each case on its own individual circumstances so in some cases, you could still qualify for one of our bad credit loans even if you have a poor credit record and have been declined a loan from the bank.

Declined loans

If your loan application is declined, we will put you in contact with another ASIC licensed lender to assist you if at all possible. Visit the government’s website www.moneysmart.gov.au for more ideas on how to save money and what to do if you fall into financial difficulty.
