4.8 out of 5 stars
got a personal loan with shawbrook bank through rac loans. instant decision and a quick phone call to verify my details. money was in my bank three days later. great service.
One of the quickest turn around time in the industry. Very happy with their service.
The application process is simple straightforward and easy. The decision on the loan was sent back quickly and there was a followup call to make sure I understood and happy with the loan agreement.
Easy, helpful, kept in touch with whats happening all the way, fast service
I have been with the RAC for over 14 years and out of the blue I received an email about their loans. As I needed some extra funds I contacted them. Within a few days the money was in my bank account. I was impressed by their professionalism and speed of operation.
Our review of RAC Personal Finance
Breakdown cover powerhouse RAC offer personal loans between £1,000 and £35,000. Their loans are fulfilled by Shawbrook Bank. Customers must be employed with an income of £15,000 or more (or receiving a pension) and poor credit won’t be accepted.
The process seems to be fairly quick, the online application takes only around 10 minutes as long as you’ve got all the necessary information such as your address details for the last three years, employment details, annual income and your bank account details. If successful, then the RAC loan will be available in your account the next working day.
It’s quite difficult to find online reviews for RAC loans and at the time of writing there are none on Choose Wisely, but their OPTIOSCORE is relatively high at 79.2. This is mainly due to their features and consumer sentiment which are both at very good levels.
Overall verdict: RAC benefit from having their finance provided by Shawbrook. Both are good household names that should give customers confidence in them as a lender. If you are going to apply for a loan with RAC then make sure that you have good credit history otherwise you are going to be declined and that could harm your credit history in the long run.
