Unsecured personal loans usually allow you to borrow between £1,000 and £25,000. This type of loan tends to be on a fixed rate of interest, and will be over a set term – so you’ll know exactly what you’ll have to pay every month.
If you’re thinking of applying for a loan, make sure you think about the following:
Remember that a “Representative APR” is just that – you may pay a different rate of interest depending on your credit rating. Read our guide about APRs for more information.
When you take out a loan, your lender may offer you the option to defer (or not make) payments for a couple of months at the start of the term.
Sounds great doesn’t it? However, while you’re not making payments interest will be mounting up, making both the monthly repayment and the total amount you repay larger.
Some lenders can make an instant payment into your current account, so you have access to your loan straight away. But think about whether you need this speedy access to the money as there’ll often be a fee for having a same day transfer.
