Loan advice

  • Ensure you know the full cost of your loan before commiting
    There is more than the interest rate to consider, some loans have an arrangement fee, a pre-payment penatly and more so ensure you know the *full* cost of repayments before signing on the dotted line.

  • How much and for how long?
    Simply put, borrow as little as possible and pay it back as quickly as possible. Beware of very long repayment periods, it will massively increase the interest you pay.

  • Are you thinking of getting payment protection?
    Be very, very wary of this option, most payment protection policies have many exclusions and get-out clauses, also, you can quite likely get it much cheaper elsewhere - shop around!
