Consumer Lending and Travel Loans In The Credit Union Industry

Travel loans are becoming more and more popular with credit union members. It isn’t hard to see why, either. With the current economic conditions, individuals have just enough funds to cover living expenses. Traveling and vacations are left to take a backseat. However, you can offer your credit union members a travel loan to give them the financial comfort and convenience they need while they are away.

What is a Travel Loan?
Travel loans are a different type of personal loan when it comes to consumer lending. It is easy to overlook travel loans as a regular product offering, but the market is very economically viable. Having travel funds on hand reassures members that their financial needs are met while they are away. This type of loan was designed to act as a supplement, or to be used in place of funds normally used for daily living. They can be easily repaid in monthly installments. Presenting travel loans this way shows members how easy and affordable it can be to take that dream vacation they have always wanted to.

Funds from a travel loan help members plan adequately for vacation. Another benefit is that it is very convenient for members to use a credit union while traveling. Especially if the credit union is connected and/or affiliated with a national network. The convenience of having cash in hand while on vacation makes a travel loan a very tempting option for members.
