Features and benefits of our Personal Loan:

  • Apply for and manage your loan online
  • Instant decision when you apply online
  • In the majority of cases we’ll tell you how much you could borrow and if you’re likely to be approved when you get your quote. This wont impact your credit score
  • Flexibility to make additional payments and apply for a repayment holiday*

* Repayment holidays are available if you meet certain conditions. Interest will be charged if you take a repayment holiday, so you will pay more interest overall and your original term will be extended.

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