    You can apply to borrow more in one of two ways:

    Top up your existing Tesco Bank Loan

    • When you top up a loan, we don't actually add money to it. We set up a new loan for the remaining balance of your existing loan, plus the extra amount you want to borrow.
    • If accepted, your new loan will replace your existing loan term, rate and monthly repayments.
    • An early settlement fee of 28 days’ interest will be added to your new loan balance.
    • If you cancel your loan within the 14-day cooling-off period, you won’t be able to re-instate your old one and will be due to pay the full balance.

    Take out a second Tesco Bank Loan

    • If accepted, you'll have an additional loan account with us.
    • Your new additional loan will have separate monthly payments, with a separate rate and term.
    • Your existing loan will stay as it is, so the same rate, term and monthly payments.
    • A second loan is only for single and not joint applicants, so if you have an existing Tesco Bank Loan, you can only apply for the second loan by yourself.

        Tesco Bank Loans: PO Box 27014, Glasgow, G2 9FE

          We offer unsecured personal loans

          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.

            Available repayment periods

            You can apply for a loan term from 12 to 120 months depending on the loan amount and purpose. Just remember that the maximum repayment period might be lower for certain loan purposes.

              Borrow exactly what you need

              We offer loans to cover costs big and small and you can be specific about the amount you need, down to the pound.

                How interest is charged

                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.

                  Getting your loan

                  How soon can I get my loan?

                  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.

                    Making repayment

                    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.

                      You'll always know what you have to pay

                      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.

                        We'll charge £12 each time a loan payment is late and £12 when a default notice is issued.

                          Can I pay my loan back early?

                          Yes. But you will be charged up to two months' interest if you choose to settle your loan early.

                            Credit checks during application

                            Credit checks during application

                            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.

                                APR and annual rate of interest

                                What do we mean by Annual Percentage Rate (APR) and annual rate of interest?

                                The APR is the total cost of borrowing, as a percentage of the amount you owe, over a year. The APR is calculated from the annual rate of interest plus any upfront fees. It gives you a way to compare the cost of different loan and credit offers.

                                The annual rate of interest is the amount of interest that will be charged on your loan, as a percentage of the amount you owe, over a year.
