Car refinance

Refinancing your car with Bank of Scotland could help you lower your monthly repayments or spread the cost of a final lump sum.

What is car refinancing?

Car refinancing is the process of taking out a new finance agreement to pay off the outstanding balance on an existing car finance agreement, usually with a new lender.

Why refinance your car with Bank of Scotland?

Bank of Scotland customers can switch their current HP or PCP car finance from elsewhere to us with no credit checks required.

Customers can then choose to switch to either Fixed Car Finance (HP) or Flex Car Finance (PCP) with us.
