Your car finance options

We have a range of car finance options to suit you. You can borrow money over 1-5 years to spread your repayments out, or even look for a long term rental through our new Car Leasing option. Eligible customers, with an existing current account, can get a personalised quote by logging on to Internet Banking. Getting an online quote won't affect your credit score. This means you can get a few quotes with different amounts or terms to help you find your ideal car.

How is HP and PCP different to a loan?

With a loan, money is sent to your current account and you pay the dealer, seller or current finance provider yourself. You can choose the amount and term you want to borrow the money over. You’ll own the car as soon as you pay the dealer/seller.

With HP and PCP car finance, the money’s sent directly to the dealer, or the company you have your existing agreement with, rather than your current account. You can’t borrow more than you need for the car or finance settlement amount. You don’t own the car until you’ve finished repaying the finance.
