                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.

                      The loans calculator will give you an example of what it might cost you based on the loan amount and term you want. However, the interest rate we offer may be higher depending on your individual circumstances.

                        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.

                          Payment break

                          Take a payment break

                          Sometimes it can really take the pressure off when 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 stating your monthly loan repayments.

                          Paying your loan

                          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).

                            You'll always know what you have to pay

                            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.

                              What happens if a payment is late?

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

                                Can I make additional payments to my loan?

                                Yes, you can do this at any time at no extra cost. It may help pay off your loan faster, reducing the amount of interest you pay which would save you money overall. You can learn all about what this means for your loan on our page about additional payments.

                                  Can I pay off my loan early?

                                  You can do this at any time which could save you money on interest charges. Remember to factor in a two-month interest fee when you settle early though. For more on early settlement figures visit our page on paying your loan off 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.

                                        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.
