Tesco Bank has today announced it has reduced the interest rate on personal loans from £7,500 to £15,000, offering both new and existing customers the lowest loan rate currently available in the market, and the lowest rate ever offered by Tesco Bank.
The rate reduction will see customers offered a rate of 4.1%APR representative on borrowing between £7,500 and £15,000, a fall from the 4.5%APR representative previously available.
Tesco Bank loans are convenient* and have a transparent and straightforward application process. The loans have fixed monthly payments, so repayments will always be the same, no set-up charges, the ability to choose the repayment date and the option to apply for a payment break at the start of the loan (subject to eligibility)**.
David McCreadie, Managing Director of Banking at Tesco Bank, commented: “We constantly review our loan rates to ensure both new and existing customers are getting the best deal possible with Tesco Bank, and today's introduction of one of the most competitive rates in the market on loans from £7,500 to £15,000 demonstrates our commitment to achieving this.”
The new interest rate is effective from Thursday 3rd July. All loans are available online or over the phone. Customers should visit www.tescobank.com/loans for more information.
