Kelly and Mark's Caravanning Adventure

About Kelly and Mark

Veterans Kelly and Mark dreamed of a grand tour of Australia. But bad credit stood in their way...

After their careers in the Defence Force, veterans Kelly and Mark were looking into taking a long holiday touring Australia. As their plans for a grand tour started to take shape, they began looking into caravans to make this dream a reality.

As discharged bankrupts, they knew that getting finance for a caravan might be tricky. “But surely that’s in the past?“ they told themselves. “We receive a steady income from our Vet Affairs Pension and are much better at managing our finances now.”

Despite positive thinking, the bank saw their loan application differently. The bank, wary of Kelly and Mark’s unemployment, were not willing to consider their application. With their dream adventure in jeopardy, Mark and Kelly called Rapid Finance. And they’re glad they did.
