Personal loans explained

At the AA we offer unsecured loans, which are usually referred to as a 'personal loan'. An unsecured personal loan is an advance of money that is not secured by collateral such as your home.

A credit scoring will be undertaken to analyse whether you'll be accepted for an unsecured personal loan and will determine the amount of interest you will pay. The amount of interest you pay depends on your past history of meeting debts and repayments. Normally the better your credit rating, the lower your interest rate will be.

Typical unsecured personal loan amounts vary, but most will be between £1,000 and £25,000, and are repaid over one to five years. You can use an unsecured personal loan to buy a car or pay for home improvements, for special events like weddings and holidays, or to consolidate your existing debt.

Some common loan terms are described in more detail below and can help you understand the application process.

Arrangement fee

Some lenders will charge a fee for arranging a loan, usually a one-off payment. An AA Loan has no arrangement fee.

CCJs

CCJ stands for County Court Judgement. These are usually issued if you have defaulted on payments of previous debt. Having a CCJ will usually affect your credit score and ability to borrow money in the future.

Credit reference agencies and your credit rating

When borrowing money you agree that the lender can check your credit rating. Your credit history will be held by a credit reference agency such as Experian or Equifax. You can access your credit history by visiting a credit reference agency's website.

Debt consolidation

If you have outstanding debt spread across a number of other loans, credit cards or store cards, you can combine these into one loan with one fixed payment. This is called 'debt consolidation'.

Fixed repayments

This is a regular fixed monthly repayment amount payable for the duration of your loan.

Fixed interest rate loans

These are fixed and can't be changed by the lender or the customer for the term agreed. Even if the Bank of England change the base rate, your loan rate will remain unchanged, giving you added peace of mind.

Loan

A loan is a sum of money which is borrowed and paid back, usually with interest over a period of time.

Member loan

This is a special rate loan to AA members. An AA member is defined as a holder of a current, valid breakdown policy purchased directly from the AA, or holder of a Member Rewards card through your insurance or other AA policy.

Payday loan

Payday loans are usually smaller amounts repaid over 30 days, and carry a higher interest rate. These loans typically cover your expenses until you receive your monthly salary. Amounts are typically between £100 and £1,000, and interest rates can be high. We don’t currently offer payday loans at the AA.

Representative APR

The 'representative APR' (annual percentage rate) is the interest rate we charge to the majority of our customers who apply for a particular loan amount. We may offer a different APR based on your personal circumstances and the amount that you want to borrow.

Secured loans

Secured loans or homeowner loans are larger amounts – between £15,000 and £200,000. They are secured on your property – either a property you own or have a mortgage on. So if you can't meet repayments, you risk losing your property. We don’t currently offer secured loans at the AA.

Settlement figure

You may repay all or part of your loan early at any time. If you repay part of your loan early your monthly repayments will be reduced but the duration of the loan period will remain the same. If you settle the loan early in full, you may have to pay interest on the amount repaid or the amount of interest that may be payable depending on the length of your loan.

Term

This is the period of time over which the loan has been taken.

Using the information you have provided, together with details from a credit reference agency, we assess your application and give it a score. This score is then matched alongside our 'acceptance' score, which is based upon detailed analysis of our experience with previous applicants.

If your application reaches the 'acceptance' score, your application is accepted. If it does not reach this score, it is refused. Credit scoring evaluates the risks attached to an application. This doesn't mean that a refused applicant is a bad payer, but simply means that our acceptance requirements haven't been met.
