What are Personal Loans?

Personal Loans are a great way to afford that extra special thing or pay off that one frustrating bill. They can be used for holidays, car, homeowners and more. Usually, they tend to range from £1,000 to £35,000 and have a lending period of between 1 year to 6 years giving you plenty of time for repayment, especially if your loan is on the larger side.

How do they work?

Once your application has submitted, looked at and approved, you will receive your money and from then, you will pay back the specified amount in fixed monthly payments including the interest.

Typically the longer you borrow for, the more you will repay due to the increase in interest.
