What is holiday finance?

Holiday finance comes in the form of a personal loan that could help fund your next family or a solo trip, so you don’t have to worry about paying for a vacation in one go.

It’s important that you have a clear idea of your budget, so you know how much you can afford to borrow and repay each month. You can use this loan however you feel is best, from securing flights to booking accommodation.

Benefits of choosing to finance your holiday

A loan for a holiday can help cover the cost of your trip. They can be flexible, and you can often choose the period you wish to repay them over (usually between one and 30 years).

Once you’ve financed your next holiday, you’ll need to repay your loan through fixed, monthly payments. Holiday finance may also allow you to borrow more funds than other types of finance, such as credit cards, and usually come with lower interest rates.

Drawbacks of holidays on finance

When applying for a loan of any amount you must ensure you’re able to meet the repayments criteria. If you fail to do so you risk paying additional fees and negatively impacting your credit score.

Am I eligible for a holiday loan?

Your eligibility depends entirely on the requirements of the lender. Whether you have CCJs, are self-employed or even retired, we work with a wide panel of lenders who can help you find an affordable loan solution.

Frequently asked questions

To help you decide whether to apply, we’ve answered some of the most common questions we get asked about our loans.

What can I do if I can't afford a holiday?

Holidays are an alluring prospect but they can prove to be expensive. And while a personal loan for a holiday can be a great idea, remember it is a form of debt that will need to be repaid. Before applying for holiday loans online, you could consider scaling back your travel plans or your holiday budget.

Do travel loans affect your credit score?

Yes, like all other loans, travel loans affect your credit rating as they are a form of personal debt. Making payments on time can help you build up your credit history. But if you make payments late, you could damage your credit score.

What type of loan is a holiday on finance?

A holiday on finance can be in one of two forms. It can be a loan secured against your property, or an unsecured loan, where a lender loans you a fixed amount over a set time period. This would need to be paid off in monthly instalments, with added interest.

How much can I borrow?

Fund a trip with borrowing options of between £1,000 and £100,000 with Norton Finance or apply for a larger loan between £100,000 and £500,000. Your personal circumstances will affect your eligibility.

How long are the repayment terms?

Choose the best repayment package for you, at anything from one to 30 years.

What are the interest rates?

These vary per lender and largely depend on your financial history and current circumstances. Rates for homeowners start at 6.59%.

How long will it take?

We offer an instant decision in principle on your application, confirming whether you’re likely to be approved. Upon successful completion of the application, it may take 14 days to receive the funds, for a secured loan.

Are there any loan fees?

We get our commission from the lender, not the customer. There may be a broker fee of up to 12.5% of the amount you have borrowed, capped at £3,995 for secured loans. We don’t charge broker fees on unsecured loans.
