What is an instalment loan?

An instalment loan is like other personal loans in that you can pay it back over an agreed period through regular monthly payments. This usually includes interest too, based on the length of the repayment period and your own financial circumstances.

Instalment loans give you flexibility to choose the amount you want to borrow and the length of your repayments, over a series of months. This way you can pick a time frame that allows you to keep up with the repayments. Just bear in mind that the longer the loan term, the more it will cost overall.

Our loan calculator is here to help you get an idea of what repayments will look like on a month-to-month basis. Adjust the sliders for amount and term to see what works for you.

Is an instalment loan right for me?

Instalment loans allow you to spread the cost of your borrowing, which makes paying back your loan more manageable.

By regularly paying back the loan each month as agreed between you and your lender, you can also demonstrate that you are a reliable borrower, which may help your credit score improve over time. This can boost your chances of being accepted for other types of credit in the future, even if you’ve been rejected by other lenders previously.

However, late or missing payments can negatively impact your credit score. You should make sure you can comfortably meet the repayments, to avoid affecting your credit worthiness or losing your property, in the case of a secured loan.

Before applying for an instalment loan

Whether you choose to take out an unsecured or secured instalment loan, it’s important to consider the following before you apply:

Your income and expenses

Familiarise yourself with your regular incomings and outgoings in advance, to check you can meet the repayments each month. Lenders also tend to ask questions about this during your application, so it’s good to be prepared.

Your credit history

It’s also a good idea to run through your credit report, as lenders may want to see your credit history, including CCJs, to determine the interest rate of your instalment loan.

Loan purpose

Lenders usually ask about the purpose of your loan, so make sure you have a clear reason for your application.

Commonly asked questions

Have questions about long-term instalment loans? Find answers to some of the most common queries below.

Can I pay off a loan early?

It’s always possible to pay off your loan balance in full at any time. However, choosing to repay the debt in full may incur an Early Repayment Fee on top of what you owe. Always check the terms of your loan to help you understand early repayment fees.

Can I take a break from paying back my loan?

Some instalment loan lenders in the UK offer ‘payment holidays,’ which allow you to take a break from repayments. This might show up on your credit report, so check the terms before you sign up.
