Here are some common questions about loans
How do I pay?
You must have a monthly Direct Debit to pay off your loan. If you need to set one up or change it, please contact us.
You can pay extra, which could help you reduce your balance quicker and pay less interest.

How to complain
Yes. If you want to pay off your loan early, you can ask us for a settlement figure online. We will tell you how much it'll be to pay off your loan and when you need to pay by. You can also call us on 0344 856 5535 (Monday to Friday, 10am to 2pm).
The figure will include up to 58 days interest in line with the Consumer Credit (Early Settlement) Regulations 2004. This doesn't apply to interest-free credit loans.

Yes, see our ways to pay for more information. Remember, you’ll still pay your monthly Direct Debit until your loan is paid off. If you overpay, we’ll send you a refund.
If you’re being charged interest, paying more off earlier will mean you pay less interest overall. This is because interest on your loan is calculated daily on the remaining balance.
