Decide how long to borrow for
A small change to your loan term could make a difference to the rate we offer. You could try getting a quote for a slightly different term (for example – 37 months instead of 36) to see if it changes your rate.
Before you apply for a loan, think carefully about what you can afford to pay back each month.
Increase or decrease your loan amount
We have different rates for different loan amounts. In some cases, borrowing more could mean you pay back less.
It’s worth checking whether you could get a better rate by increasing or reducing the amount you borrow.
Depending on the rates you're offered, for a 4 year loan, you could borrow:
- £4,950 at 9.9% per annum and pay back £5,967, or
- £5,000 at 3.9% per annum and pay back £5,401
In this example, you’d save £566 by borrowing £50 more.
Interest rate ranges
|Loan amount||Interest rate per annum|
|£1,000 to £2,999||13.9% to 24.9%|
|£3,000 to £4,999||9.9% to 24.9%|
|£5,000 to £7,499||3.9% to 24.9%|
|£7,500 to £25,000||2.9% to 24.9%|
