Personal Loan

Exclusive to Bank of Scotland Internet Banking customers

Our Personal Loan gives you:

  • 3.9% APR representative on loans from £7,500 to £25,000 over 1 to 5 years
  • Wide range of borrowing options: choose to borrow £1,000 to £50,000 over 1 to 7 years
  • Apply for and manage your loan online
  • Instant decision when you apply online
  • 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.

If you’re an existing Bank of Scotland customer with a Bank of Scotland bank account (excluding Easycash) held for at least 1 month, you can get a personalised quote and apply online.

How much we lend and the rate available are subject to our assessment of your circumstances.

If you’re looking to borrow money, it’s important that you make the right choice for your circumstances. Bank of Scotland also have other borrowing options that may be suitable for your needs.
