To find out roughly how much your monthly repayments would be and how much the loan would cost you in total you can use the Tesco Bank loan calculator. However remember the APR you are given if you chose to apply is not necessarily the same as the one the calculator uses, yours may be affected when the lender takes your personal financial circumstances into account such as; your credit score, how much you earn and if you have any existing credit commitments. Your financial circumstances will also influence how much a lender is willing to loan you, just because the maximum that can be borrowed with this plan is £25,000 it does not guarantee that anyone can borrow that much.
When taking out a loan of any amount you want to make sure you get the best deal, remember Tesco personal loans are just one option of many, shopping around before you commit to a plan could save you money. You can use the calculator on this website to compare over 200 different loans from over 20 different providers, to help you evaluate your options.
As taking out a loan is an important decision you should think if you have any other options before taking one out. If you have any savings it might be beneficial to use these instead, it may be that the interest you pay on a loan will be higher than any interest you earn in your savings.
There are other types of borrowing than personal and home owner loans such as authorised overdrafts and credit cards you might wish to consider.
