Customers to benefit from market-leading rate for large loans

Tesco Bank is expanding its range of personal loans by now offering loans of more than £25,000 up to a limit of £35,000 at a market-leading rate of 6.9%APR representative1 for Clubcard customers on terms of less than 8 years.

The Bank is launching these loans in response to demand from customers who are increasingly looking to borrow larger amounts particularly to carry out improvements or alterations to their home.

Tesco Loans have a straightforward application process2 and, helpfully, customers can have their loan funds transferred to their bank account within 24 hours of their application being accepted3. Customers can make fixed monthly payments and there are no set-up charges. Eligible customers also have the option to apply for a payment break at the start of the loan.

David McCreadie, Managing Director, Banking at Tesco Bank, said: “With spending on home alterations and improvements increasing by over 35% in past few years4, we want to widen the options available to customers who are looking to update or improve their home. We are delighted to increase the borrowing options available to customers, and meet the growing demand for larger loan amounts.”

Tesco Loans are available between one and ten years, depending on the loan amount and purpose of the loan. Customers should visit http://www.tescobank.com/loans/ for more information.
