Loan for buying a car
Benefits of a loan for buying a car
Buying a car can be a big commitment. That’s why it’s worth taking the time to find a model with the space, comfort and performance you need. It’s just as important to find the right finance, and a loan is one option available to you.
Keep in mind
- You can apply for our Personal Loan if you have held a Bank of Scotland Current Account for at least one month.
- How much we lend and the rate available are subject to our assessment of your personal circumstances, and the amount and period you wish to borrow over.
- In certain circumstances, we may be able to offer you a payment holiday. This would result in you paying more interest over a longer period and increase the overall cost of the car loan.
- We will charge up to 58 days' interest if you decide to settle your Personal Loan early.
Other forms of car finance are still worth thinking about. Hire PurchaseHire Purchase or a Personal Contract PurchasePersonal Contract Purchase offer specific benefits that might work for you.
Budgeting is important to make sure a Personal Loan is right for you, so don’t forget to consider other costs associated with owning a car to consider, such as insurance, servicing, MOT, fuel and breakdown cover.
We want you to find a product that’s right for your circumstances, which is why we adhere to the Standards of Lending Practice, which are monitored and enforced by the Lending Standards Board.
