What are 18-month loans?

There are times in life when you need financial help. Your car may need urgent repairs that you haven’t planned for, or perhaps you need to replace the broken boiler in your home.

The last thing you want is to get into debt just to try to make ends meet. This is one reason why 118 118 Money offers unsecured personal loans from £1,000 to £5,000 over various loan periods from one to two years.

Our 18-month loans are based on a fixed interest rate, making your monthly repayments more affordable and unlike variable rates, these repayments will not vary, helping you to manage your finances more easily. As long as you pay each instalment on time, you can rest easy that there are no added fees or hidden small print to contend with later.

We offer 18-month unsecured loans, which means you are not at risk of losing an asset such as your home or car if you miss your repayments.
