You’ve worked hard across decades. Now that you’re in your retirement, it’s time to take a load off and relax.
Perhaps you want to join the 1.7 million Australian over 60s taking overseas holidays each year. Whether you’ve been dreaming of a bucket list escape, an Australian caravanning adventure or taking a trip to see the grandkids, there is now nothing holding you back from your trip of a lifetime. Except money.
Finding the spare cash for an overseas holiday to that dream destination or to simply travel more domestically can be difficult, particularly when competing with more immediate priorities such as utilities and other everyday bills, home maintenance and medical expenses.
Faced with only personal loans or credit cards to finance a trip, many seniors simply miss out on travelling during retirement.
Travel or visit your relatives with a Heartland Reverse Mortgage
A Heartland Reverse Mortgage could fund your next holiday – more than one in five of our customers use their reverse mortgage to pay for a trip. A leading benefit of a Heartland Reverse Mortgage is that its interest rate is often lower than many of the credit cards or personal loans in the market.
Accessing the funds in your property with a Heartland Reverse Mortgage could provide you with a cost effective and flexible alternative to help you travel sooner.
One of the benefits of using a reverse mortgage to fund travel is that regular loan repayments are not required. The interest is calculated on the balance outstanding and added monthly to your loan. Voluntary repayments can be made at any time if you choose, which reduces the balance and interest charged. At the end of the term of your loan, when you move permanently from your home, the total interest charged, together with the amounts drawn, will be payable.
Not having regular loan repayments can reduce stress and free up cash flow, giving you the peace of mind to live a more comfortable retirement.
