Ways to borrow money
A loan, credit card, overdraft or Buy Now Pay Later? Take a look at your lending options below.
A personal loan allows you to borrow a fixed amount over a fixed period of time. It's suitable for short, medium and longer term borrowing.
- Know how much you'll pay each month and when you'll finish repaying
- Consolidate debt or fund larger one-off purchases such as a new car or home improvements
You can make overpayments or pay off your loan early, subject to early repayment charges.
A credit card lets you buy things up to an agreed limit and pay for them later.
- Spread the cost of purchases
- Consolidate credit or store credit balances with other lenders
Credit cards come with monthly interest and can incur late payment fees. If you just make the minimum monthly repayment, this can be an expensive form of borrowing.
An arranged overdraft is when we agree to a limit that lets you spend a bit more money than you have in your current account.
This could help you manage your money if:
- you have to cover short-term expenses
- your income or outgoings vary from month to month
There’s no cost to set up an arranged overdraft on your account. Interest charges only apply for the days you use your overdraft.
