The challenging times we’re all experiencing means we’re getting a lot more calls than usual and our call times are longer. So we can support people in the most vulnerable situations, we ask that you only call us if your enquiry is urgent. You can still use our online and mobile banking services and our automated service.

 

Three car finance options, one careful provider.

When it comes to financing your next car, we give you three options to match your needs. You can choose from a Personal Loan, Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) or Hire Purchase (HP), all with the expertise and experience you expect from your bank.

Why a Personal Loan

With a Personal Loan, you can choose to buy your car from a dealer or private seller, and you may even have some money left over afterwards.

Why Personal Contract Purchase (PCP)

Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) can give you the flexibility to switch to a new car more often. At the end of the agreement, you can either pay the optional final lump sum to own the car, exchange it for a new one (subject to settling your existing agreement, new agreements are subject to status) or you simply hand the car back and walk away (return conditions apply).

Additionally, if you choose PCP, we cover most UK dealers, and if you have any problems with the quality of your car, our dedicated team will be on hand to help you.

Why Hire Purchase (HP)

With Hire Purchase (HP) , you benefit from equal monthly payments, no mileage limits, and at the end of the agreement, you own the car.

Additionally, if you choose HP, we cover most UK dealers, and if you have any problems with the quality of your car, our dedicated team will be on hand to help you.

Personal Loan

Have you decided that a personal loan is the right option for you? Some key points to remember are:

  • loans are available from 1 to 7 years
  • you can use the money for other purchases than just your new car
  • funds are sent direct to your bank account.

PCP or HP

You have decided that car finance is the way to fund your next car purchase. Lloyds Bank gives you:

  • an agreement of up to 5 years
  • two different choices of plan (PCP or HP)
