Alternatives to personal loans
If you are a homeowner looking to borrow more than £15,000 you could consider looking into homeowner loans. This type of loan is similar to a mortgage in that it is secured on your home, because of this security lenders are often willing to loan you more.
Argos does offer homeowner loans between £7,500 and £200,000, as with a personal loan this money can be used however you like.
Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage or any other debt secured on it. If you are at all unsure of the suitability of a particular product for your circumstances you should seek independent financial advice.
Similarly to personal loans Argos is just one lender of many, the diverse ranges of financial products out there mean you should shop around to make sure you get the right loan for you.
If you have been considering taking out a loan to pay for a vocational course you may actually qualify for a ‘Professional and Career Development Loan’
this is a special type of loan to pay for courses or training that will help you with your career or to get into work.

- Be 18 or over
- Have been living in the UK for at least 3 years before your course starts
- Be planning to work in the UK, European Union or European Economic Area after the course
- Be planning on attending a course provided by an organisation on the professional career and development loan register.
This type of loan lets you borrow from £300 to £10,000 which you do not need to start repaying until after your course finishes.
