Low Value Loans up to £2,000
Many of our members are looking for affordable low value loans under £2,000, and we specialise in offering these type of loans, which prevents having to use more expensive options, which can include overdrafts, credit or store cards, home lenders and payday lenders.
Our loans calculator above can be used to show how much you can save by borrowing from us for a low value loan.
Higher Value Loans Over £2,000
For those looking for loans for a larger amount, for example for home improvements, cars or a wedding, and are not eligible for our platinum loan (see criteria above), we offer competitve loans up to the value of £15,000 in excess of the savings a member holds with us. So, for example, if you have £2,000 of savings, you can apply for a £17,000 loan. The table below gives some illustrative examples:
|Loan Value & APR%||Monthly Repayments||Total Repayable|
|£5,500 (12.7% APR)||£258.91 per month
for 24 months
|£8,000 (12.7% APR)||£265.72 per month
for 36 months
|£10,000 (12.7% APR)||£276.51 per month
for 48 months
Please note that the final monthly repayment will differ to the amount shown above. These are standard rates for illustration purposes only: applicants may be entitled to a loyalty or promotional rate which will reduce the monthly repayments and total amount repayable.
Loans to Consolidate Credit
If you currently have outstanding credit with overdrafts, credit cards, store cards or loans etc, you may be making a number of repayments througout the month at different interest rates. A loan to consolidate your credit would allow you to make one monthly repayment at a fixed rate. Our credit consolidation loan is offered at 41.2% APR for loans up to £1,000, and 18.9% APR for higher value loans.
When considering debt consolidation, it's important to consider what you want to achieve and what is most important to you, for example:
- including all your existing credit repayments in one monthly payment for convenience
- reducing the overall cost of borrowing
- reducing monthly repayments
We cannot guarantee that these options will reduce the overall cost of borrowing - this will depend on the on the interest rates you currently pay on your outstanding credit. We strongly recommend that you compare these with the the cost of our credit consolidation loan before deciding if this product is right for you.
Please note that if you have an existing loan with us, and apply for a top-up loan, the loan offered to you will be at the credit consolidation rate if either your existing loan or new loan application is for this purpose. We would therefore recommend repaying any standard existing loans with us first before applying for this product.
Please talk to us about whether consolidating your debt with us could save you money and help you clear your outstanding balances.
