Santander Personal Loan

Summary

Good:
Competitive interest rates similar to the other banks - simple online application form and 24 hour decision

Bad:
They will try to push Payment Protection Insurance on you, you can probably find it cheaper elsewhere

Verdict:
Santander has a very bad reputation for their customer service - unable to carry out simple tasks and customers being passed from one representative to the next

Santander are offering personal loans between £1,000 and £20,000 for up to 5 years. You can use the loan for almost any purpose. Santander offer PPI but you are not obliged to take it.

You can apply online within minutes and they will give you a decision within 24 hours. Santander's interest rate is very similar to other high street banks which makes it a cheap option.

You can apply online using their online application form which only takes a few minutes. Within 3 working days of submitting your application, they will send you a letter explaining whether your application has been successful or not. If you have been successful, they will send you a credit agreement which you need to sign and return in the freepost envelope (along with any other documents they may ask you to provide). Payment is instant once they have received your final documents.

You can also apply by calling them on 0800 028 4055 and they will run through an application with you. Another way of applying is by going into your local branch. If you do visit your local branch, make sure you take with you: Proof of ID, Income information (wage slips and bank statement), monthly outgoings information (mortgage, rent, utility bills, etc), bank details of where you want the money to go into, bank details of where you want the money to come out of, up to 3 years address history, details of you employers (name, time been there, address of), details of all your bank statements and credit cards.
