Tesco Bank launches new personal loan range

Tesco Bank is today launching a simplified range of personal loans offering customers some of the most competitive rates on the market. The personal loans are available for both Clubcard and non-Clubcard customers and apply to the following loan amounts:                                              

Loan Amount Representative APR
£5,000 - £9,999 3.3% for loan terms of 1-7 years
£10,000 - £25,000 3.1% for loan terms of 1-7 years

Tesco Loans have a straightforward application process1, 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 loan2.

David McCreadie, Managing Director at Tesco Bank, said: “We know that for some customers a personal loan is the most cost efficient approach to managing their money or to finance a car or home improvement. Our new range of personal loan products offer customers some of the most competitive rates on the market and I’m delighted that they are available to apply for from today.”   

The simplified loan range is available now and customers should visit for more information.
