Your consolidation options
Westpac offers two kinds of debt consolidation loans depending on their individual needs.
If you have more than one debt to pay off every month it can be very frustrating. This is the time to consider a debt consolidation loan – by putting all your debts into one account and then paying off one account every month.
Usually the interest rate is lower and the repayment amount is more manageable. This can be used for all kinds of debt, whether it is store cards or credit cards.
There is an unsecured personal loan, or what is called a credit card balance transfer:
- Credit Card Balance Transfer: means you transfer the money into another credit card account attracting 0% interest for a certain period of time which is discussed and set when you take the loan out;
Unsecured Personal Loan: is a Loan which allows you to borrow money without any security. The interest rate is lower than that of a credit card.

A host of great products
Besides debt consolidation loans, Westpac likes to keep their clients happy with a range of products and they have many ways in which they do that, including looking after their clients in a disaster situation or helping them learn more about how to save money or teaching them how to trade with shares and other investments.
If you have bad credit then you still have options available to you. Most debt consolidation loans require you to have a good credit score in order to qualify. Our loans give those with bad credit a second chance at a stable financial future.
We are willing to take a chance on you regardless of your credit score, combine your existing debt into one easy to manage loan. Save money on interest and other charges and pay one lower monthly instalment.
Consider peer-to-peer lending
Peer-to-peer lending is another good option for those that have a bad credit score. This process allows you to borrow money from an individual investor. They will consider your application and if they decide that they want to assist you then you could end up saving a lot of money and only need to make one simple repayment per month.
Transfer your balance to a new credit card
The easiest way to save money is to open a new zero per cent balance credit card and transfer your existing credit card debt onto the new credit card. This will allow you to repay your debt back at a much lower interest rate by combining all your balances.
Use your home as equity
If you own your home you will be able to use the equity from your property. You may be able to borrow up to 80% of your home's equity and use this to consolidate your debt and lower your monthly instalments. Another option is to apply for a second mortgage on your loan.
