Santander Personal Loan
Competitive interest rates similar to the other banks - simple online application form and 24 hour decision
They will try to push Payment Protection Insurance on you, you can probably find it cheaper elsewhere
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
