Unsecured loans FAQs
Published on 06 May 2021
How do I pay the loan back?
All loan repayments must be made by Direct Debit, so you will need a bank account.
How often will I make payments?
You can choose weekly, 2-weekly or 4-weekly. Please select the date/day you wish to pay on in the 'next payment date' section and we will set up your repayments accordingly.
How do I make a card payment?
You can log on to your account and click the 'make payment' button. Alternatively please call us on 01772 666100.
What happens if I want to pay my loan back early?
No problem! You can do this at any time - although we may need to ask you more about where the funds have come from.
I can't make my repayments - what can I do?
Please ring us to discuss your situation. We are understanding and willing to discuss this with you. We would prefer you to make a token payment towards your loan rather than stop paying. If you don't talk to us we can't help you, and may have to take action to recover the loan.
