Extremely satisfied with the service, no surprises or hidden costs, of course, you always want a better interest rate but they listen when others don’t so well done. I’m impressed by the service.
The staff I dealt with were very helpful and professional. The administration costs were lower than other peer to peer lenders in the market. The interest rate was competitive and lower than I expected.
Approved and great rate matched with lender in 24 hours. Process was simple, feedback great with everything very well explained. Funds deposited in nominated account in less than 2 business days.
My experience with RateSetter has been exceptional. The whole process was simple, painless, speedy and efficient. Much less stressful than any other loan. I could not have asked for a better service.
It was a surprisingly easy process. RateSetter has helped me combine by debt into one manageable bill with one easy repayment. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking at consolidating.
I truly found this to be one of the easiest sites to navigate. It was so easy to apply and the response times were unreal. The rate was significantly better than minimum rates advertised by other lenders.

You’ve got questions we’ve got answers.
What is a wedding loan?
A wedding loan is a form of unsecured personal loan that you can use to finance your big day. It provides you with the cash you need to book a venue, hire a DJ, buy a dream bridal gown, hire caterers, and more.
According to Moneysmart, the average Australian wedding costs $36,200. CANSTAR puts the figure even higher, at $65,482. Either way, there’s no escaping the fact that hosting a wedding can be a very expensive exercise. However, with a low rate RateSetter loan you don’t need to give up on enjoying the wedding of your dreams just because you can’t pay for it all at once.
A wedding loan works just like a personal loan. That is, you borrow a specific amount of money and then pay it back with interest over an agreed term. To qualify for a loan, you must submit an application and agree to a credit check that takes into account your borrowing history, employment status, credit score, and other factors.
What can I use it loan for?
Your loan can be used to fund anything you need for your big day (and beyond). Borrow for:
- Wedding rings / engagement rings
- Wedding venue hire
- Flowers / decorations
- Hair and makeup
- Wedding catering
- Wedding dresses / bridesmaids dresses / formal wear
- Photography / videography
- Wedding car hire
- Wedding cakes
- Wedding music
How much does it cost?
A wedding loan generally has three components that that affect the total cost over the life of the loan:
- the interest rate (this may be fixed or variable)
- a one-time establishment fee
- ongoing fees (such as account maintenance fees, late payment fees, and other charges)
These costs may be displayed to you as a comparison rate that represents the total effective price of a loan. This allows you to compare different loans to find the one that best suits your needs.
See below for an overview of fees and charges (including interest rates) associated with RateSetter’s personal loans:
|Term||1 yr||2 yr||3 yr||4 yr||5 yr|
|Credit Assistance Fee||from|

Comparison rates for 1, 2 and 3 year loans are based on an unsecured personal loan of $10,000 over a 36 month term. Comparison rates for 4 and 5 year loans are based on an unsecured personal loan of $30,000 over a 60 month term. Comparison rates shown assume a customer with an excellent credit history. Rates current as at 4pm, 20 July 2019. Warning: This comparison rate applies only to the example or examples given. Different amounts and terms will result in different comparison rates. Costs such as redraw fees or early repayment fees, and cost savings such as fee waivers, are not included in the comparison rate but may influence the cost of the loan.
