TSB launches market-leading personal loans rate

TSB has reduced its personal loans rate for amounts between £5,000 and £7,499 to 3.3% APR representative. The market-leading rate is applicable for all loan terms between one and five years. The rate is dropping from 3.5%.

TSB is committed to helping people to ‘borrow well’, which means helping them to borrow money in a way that makes the best financial sense for them. It is essential that people not only borrow an amount they can afford to repay and at a competitive interest rate but understand the product’s features. This includes knowing whether they can take a payment holiday or if there are fees should they pay off the loan in full early.

Nick Smith, Head of Loans at TSB, says: “Our market-leading personal loans rate helps customers to borrow well, whether they’re consolidating other loans, planning home improvements or simply looking to finance a ‘big ticket’ purchase such as a car.

“What’s more, we don’t punish people for shopping around for a loan, as we offer personalised quotes on a TSB loan without affecting credit ratings.”

TSB’s personal loans for amounts between £7,500 and £25,000 over 1 to 5 years continue to be available at a competitive rate of 2.8% APR.

How to apply for a TSB loan

Customers can apply online at tsb.co.uk, by phone on 0345 835 3861 or in a TSB branch. Unlike with some personal loans providers, customers will receive a personalised quote instantly without affecting their credit rating. This means that customers will know the exact interest rate and monthly repayment they will pay on their loan before they choose to apply.

TSB current account customers could get the money in their account the same day, with other successful applicants getting their money as soon as the next day. TSB loans all offer the flexibility for customers to make overpayments, so they can reduce the term and amount of interest paid should they so wish.
