Our review of Clydesdale Bank Loans

Unlike some other banks, it’s not essential to hold a current account, card or other form of personal finance with Clydesdale to be able to apply for their loans. You will need to have good credit history though, so if you’ve had a CCJ or default recently then steer clear and find a lender that would be better suited to your circumstances.

If you're pushed for time and looking for a quick injection of cash, then Clydesdale will not be the best option for you. Once approved customers must send back their completed documentation – after that it can take up to five working days for the loan to be credited into the chosen account.

On Choose Wisely reviews about Clydesdale are mixed. Their process is said to be detailed and they ask a lot of questions, but this is to be expected when applying for finance from this type of lender, especially if you’re asking for amounts towards the higher end of the scale. On the plus side, you can also choose to make repayments weekly which is a real bonus for customers that get paid weekly rather than monthly.

Overall verdict: Clydesdale offer a similar offering to the other banks and are a solid lender worth researching if you have good credit. If your credit history isn't great you'll be better off checking out our bad credit loans comparison table

About Clydesdale Bank Loans

Clydesdale Bank offer fixed rate personal loans from £1,000 to £35,000 paid back monthly over a period of one to five years. Representative APRs vary in accordance with the amount borrowed; £1,000 - £2,999 is 20.9%, but this decreases when larger loans are requested and may change during the application process due to your personal financial circumstances.

You don’t need to have a bankaccount with them, but you will need a good credit history to apply to Clydesdale Bank, so if there are a few blemishes on your record then this loan may not be suitable for you.

There are no arrangement fees to pay, however early repayment of the loan incurs a charge of up to 58 days’ interest on the amount that you’re repaying.
