Our review of NatWest Bank Loans
NatWest offer unsecured personal loans between £1,000 and £50,000 to be repaid over one to five years with a representative APR of 3.4% for loans between £7.500 and £19,950. You will need to have good credit history to apply with NatWest, as you do with most of the big high street banks and if you have online banking with them then you can apply online, otherwise you will need to pop into a branch or call their customer service team.
Their online quote process is personalised to each customer and takes into account personal circumstance before giving an indication of how likely it is that the applicant will be approved. This is a handy tool as it means that if you are given an unlikely rating then you know not to apply and there will be no footprint left on your credit file.
Looking at reviews online doesn’t give a real representation of NatWest’s loans. Their TrustPilot rating is ‘bad’, however this takes into account all of the products they provide, not just their loans and scanning through the reviews the bulk of dissatisfaction is about bank charges and impersonal service. On Choose Wisely there are arguments for both good and bad; on the negative side customers don’t like having to pay early settlement charges and have had to make multiple calls or visits to branch. However, on the positive side, customers have found the process simple, efficient and have received their loans quickly.
Overall verdict: NatWest seem to have similar problems to other high street banks in the market – they can sometimes have impersonal service, they charge for early settlement and you have to have an account to get a loan with them. However, if you bank with NatWest and have had a positive experience then don’t let this put you off, make use of their personalised online quote and see if it’s worth applying.
