Westpac Flexi Loan
Why choose a Flexi Loan?
With a Westpac Flexi Loan, you can:
- Withdraw funds whenever you need them, without reapplying
- Pay interest only on what you've used – not your whole credit limit
- Repay what you like each month, over the monthly minimum repayment
- Transfer funds from your Flexi Loan account to a transaction account or pay bills directly using BPAY®.
How does Flexi Loan work?
A Westpac Flexi Loan is a line of credit that gives you:
- A dedicated account with a credit limit of $4,000-$50,000
- An interest rate of 16.49% p.a. on the funds you use
- Term plans to help you plan to repay what you borrow
- A flexible way to access credit that’s ready when you are.
Please note: You need a higher level of discipline to pay off the loan principal on a Flexi Loan than with other loan types. Use our Personal Loan selector to check that Westpac Flexi Loan suits your needs.
