Michael plans a special trip thanks to a Personal Loan for travel from Finance One.

Oct 18, 2021 | Client Success

Perth’s Michael Christie and his wife are set for a wonderful honeymoon thanks to a Personal Loan from Finance One.

Michael Christie has now been married to his wife for 2 years, but the associated costs, together with being a fly in/fly out worker made scheduling their honeymoon tricky when they got married, so they ended up postponing it.

Never-the-less, Michael now has the funds that he needs and is ready to go when the time is right. Based in Perth, Michael planned a special honeymoon to Broome with his wife, which is one of Western Australia’s most highly recommended holiday destinations. Planning this trip meant the world to Michael and his wife, and so he wants to make this much awaited trip a special one.

Finance One was Michael’s first preference when he decided to apply for a Personal Loan. “It made sense; I had a car loan approved with them with no stress,” Michael said.

“It all came about after I was shopping for a motorbike,” Michael explains. “I ended up buying a car instead, with the funding coming quickly from Finance One.”

Michael’s experience was so good with Finance One the first time around, that he got back in touch to enquire about the money he wanted for his honeymoon, without any hesitation.

“I’d honestly say, they’re probably one of the best finance companies I’ve dealt with in regard to great customer service. They are always there to help you. If you have a problem, you can jump on the phone and ring them, and you don’t have to worry about whether it is a good idea or not. I can’t think of anything negative to say about Finance One as I am more than happy,” Michael says.


Michael has been in touch with Finance One via phone and email and has always found the response times to be very quick. While he has had issues with bad credit in the past due to a single overdue payment, he is now more aware of maintaining a good credit score and understands that paying off his loans for his car and honeymoon plans, in accordance with his loan agreements, may also help with his credit rating.

“Once Finance One had the information they needed, including bank slips and details of my job and employment history, getting approved for the loan and receiving the funds took around a week. And the repayments are easy enough,” says Michael, who has since referred one of his friends to Finance One.

“I have spoken to a few different people at Finance One and they are always friendly. Rebekah suggested I plan the honeymoon trip to the Kimberly, and it was indeed a great suggestion,” Michael adds.

As for the final honeymoon destination, in light of travel restrictions, Broome is one of the safest choices for Michael and his wife because it is within their home state. There is also so much to do in the area, and now Michael and his wife have the funds to enjoy the holiday of a lifetime.
