Your loan quote

Getting a quote is quick and easy and won't impact your credit score.

You'll be able to:

  • Select how much you want to borrow - lending available from £1,000 - £50,000.
  • Decide how long the term will be - terms from 1 to 7 years.
  • How likely to be approved you'll be.

And see:

  • The monthly repayments - how much this will cost.
  • The total cost of the loan - overall cost of the loan, including interest.
  • Your personalised interest rate - fixed for the term of the loan.

Your personalised quote will depend on the loan amount, term you request and your personal circumstances.

If you're happy with the quote you can apply online. If you're approved between 9am and 08:30pm, you'll get your money the same day. Otherwise, you'll have your money before 9am the next working day.

Paying it back - what you need to know

Managing your loan - it's easy to keep track of your loan using Internet Banking or the Mobile Banking app. You can also phone us or visit us in branch.

Repayment holidays - you can apply for up to two repayment holidays of 1 month in a rolling 12-month period, if approved. Interest will still be charged for the months that you don’t make any payments. So you'll pay more interest overall and your original term will be extended.

Make further payments with no extra charge.

However, we can't offer a loan for any of these reasons.We will not lend for - speculative purchases, for example: gambling, investments and share purchases, any illegal purposes, business related purposes, purchase/lease of land or property, either full or part purchase (including deposit) or for timeshares/holiday clubs
