If you find things aren't going to plan, a bit of financial flexibility can really help. We can give you some time out from your loan with a one month repayment holiday. You can ask for up to two repayment holidays every 12 months.
How to take a loan repayment holiday
Before you request a repayment holiday you will need to:
have made at least one repayment, and have a direct debit in place
be up to date with your loan repayments
not be in the process of making a loan protection insurance claim
have at least 30 days remaining on your loan term
other factors may also be taken into account
Please note that interest will be charged if you take a break from your repayments or defer your payments, so you will pay more interest overall.
We pride ourselves on being a responsible lender

Things to think about
Taking a repayment holiday will extend the length of your loan and we will continue to charge you interest on your outstanding loan balance. We will advise you of the additional interest that will apply when you call.
Interest will be charged if you take a break from your repayment or defer your payments, so you will pay more interest overall. Repayment holidays are available if you meet certain conditions and are subject to our approval.
