Services to Borrowers
Coastal Credit Union members can borrow between £50 and £7,500 (subject to conditions) at very competitive rates, using a flexible repayment plan normally linked to a savings plan.
These low-cost loans are offered exclusively to members. By arranging a savings plan alongside the loan, members not only learn to budget sensibly and repay regularly, they are able to improve their credit rating and build up a bonus pot of money for themselves.
Support and guidance to help borrowers budget is also part of the package from Coastal Credit Union. Many of our previous borrowers are now enthusiastic savers, pleased to be able to manage their money and pay their own bills and not rely on short term high interest rate loans.
Benefits to borrowers include:
- • Low interest rates – current Annual Percentage Rate [APR*] of 26.8%
• No set up or exit fees
• No hidden charges
• No early repayment penalties
• Interest charged daily, on a reducing basis, so the quicker the loan is repaid, the less interest is due
• Simple loan application form
• Savings pot grows alongside repayments made to loan
• Free life insurance for loans up to £5,000, subject to conditions, which would repay the loan on death of the member
*APR stands for the Annual Percentage Rate of charge. You can use it to compare different credit and loan offers.
Applications are decided on your ability to repay and willingness to save. Applicants must be aged eighteen or over. Terms and conditions apply.
