What is a Consolidation Loan and how does it work?

A Debt Consolidation Loan can be used to settle a number of smaller debts that you have, such as store cards or other loans, into one loan. By consolidating debt and taking a loan over a longer term you could improve your cash flow.

If you’d like to streamline your finances, a Consolidation Loan may just be the perfect financial fit for you. It is designed to simplify your finances, instead of several creditors to manage you’ll have just one. You’ll find it easier to manage payments and will save on monthly service fees and debit order costs. Interest rates are fixed making it easier to budget too.

We’ll take your personal financial profile into consideration when you apply. If your loan is approved, it’ll be for an amount that you can comfortably afford. The success of your application is subject to credit approval.

When you take out a Debt Consolidation Loan, you’ll have a single monthly payment at a fixed interest rate – and, if you’re taking the loan over a longer term, your monthly repayment could be lower. In fact, most South Africans who have consolidated their accounts with DirectAxis, you’ll be pleased to know, increase their cash flow by an average of R1 900 every month!

How will DirectAxis settle my accounts?

After we have your permission, we’ll request settlement on your behalf and let you know how much your accounts will be settled for. When your accounts have been settled, it will be in your best interest not to re-open or continue to use these accounts.

When should I consider consolidating my accounts?

If you’re left with very little cash each month after all your retail or credit cards have been paid, by taking out a Consolidation Loan over a longer term you could lower your monthly repayments.

What other benefits can I expect?

After your Consolidation Loan has been used to settle your accounts, the remaining amount of the loan will be deposited into your bank account, to spend as you choose. You’ll also have the convenience of paying a single, fixed monthly payment and you won’t have to deal with multiple service fees and debit order costs. You’ll also have a Personal Protection Plan which settles your outstanding loan balance in the event of your death, permanent disability or certain dreaded diseases.
