There are a variety of reasons why people take out secured (homeowner) or personal (unsecured) loans, ranging from a new car or home improvements to the need to consolidate existing debts.

Compare all sorts of loans from personal loans to debt consolidation loans.

Why compare loans?

With such a huge variety of loans on offer, it's important to get a loan comparison to find the right one for your needs.

Depending on which loans you want to compare there are a number of factors to be taken into account:

  • the interest charged on the loan

  • early repayment charges or penalties

  • personal circumstances that could affect your ability to pay

In addition, for secured loans we need to ask you some questions relating to your property and any borrowing against this property. This will produce a more accurate and tailored set of results.

Use our loan comparison service and we’ll use all these factors to find the best loans for your circumstances.
