Whether it’s time to sort out your money, replace the family car or finally make a start on those home improvements, a personal loan could help.
There are many reasons why you might want to take out a personal loan.

Planning a big do, a smaller wedding, or something in between? A Tesco Bank loan could help pay for the perfect day
A loan gives you the money you need upfront and lets you spread the cost of paying it back. So whether it's a special holiday, a car or a new kitchen, a personal loan can make it more affordable.
Loans are available to UK residents aged 18 and over only. Rates will vary depending on loan amount and individual circumstances. Subject to status.

This means that if we decide to lend you money, it won't be secured on your home, car or other assets. You can then spend this money on the things you need.
You can apply for a loan term from 12 to 84 months depending on the loan amount and purpose. Just remember that the maximum repayment period might be lower for certain loan purposes.
We offer loans to cover costs big and small and you can be specific about the amount you need, down to the pound.
The interest rate is fixed for the life of the loan.
At the beginning of the loan we work out the interest you will pay over the whole length of your loan and add this to your loan amount. We calculate your interest charge by applying interest at a monthly rate based on the APR to the balance of your loan, as reduced by your monthly repayments. We add this to the loan amount and then divide this total by the number of monthly repayments.
The loans calculator will give you a representative example based on the loan amount and term you want. However, the interest rate we offer may be higher depending on your individual circumstances. The maximum APR we offer is 25.5%.
If you've been approved, you'll receive some important documents within five days, which you'll need to check, sign and return to us.
If you apply online, you’ll get an immediate decision and, if eligible, can digitally sign your loan agreement with us. We’ll then use Faster Payments to send the money directly to your bank account.
Once we're happy with the information you've sent, we'll fully approve your loan and pay the money into your bank account.
Sometimes it can really take the pressure off if you don’t have to start repaying your loan straight away, especially if you’ve got extra expenses to cover.
So when you apply for a loan, you might be eligible to apply for a payment break before starting your monthly loan repayments.
Your payment is made by monthly direct debit from the account the loan is paid into. Your first payment will be made one month after issue of the loan on the date you have chosen in your application, unless you apply for an initial payment break (see under Payment break tab).
All Tesco Bank Personal Loans are fixed rate. This means your monthly Direct Debit payments will be the same every month until your loan is paid off. Nice and simple.
We'll charge £12 each time a loan payment is late and £12 when a default notice is issued.
Yes. But you will be charged up to two months' interest if you choose to settle your loan early.
We'll carry out a credit reference search when you apply for a loan and a credit score will be calculated based on the information you enter and your credit reference information. This will help us make a decision on whether or not we're able to lend to you. We'll then let you know the decision and what the status of your application is.
