Information is correct as at 1st December 2020.

Lending criteria, underwriting, terms & conditions apply. The KBC Personal Loan is subject to repayment capacity, financial status and is not available to persons under 18 years of age. APR means Annual Percentage Rate.

All information, prices and rates are for guidance only and do not form part of a legal contract, agreement or understanding.

  • *See bonkers.ie for verification. Market refers to the banking market only. Offer rate of 6.30% APR (6.13% Fixed) on loans over €10,000. Max loan amount €50,000. Discount offer is available with respect to new Personal Loan applications only and is subject to availability. To avail of the optional discounted rate, you must repay the loan from your KBC current account by direct debit. The discounted rate is a discount on the standard personal loan rate which equates to a 1% discount on the Annual Percentage Rate (“APR”), which may vary.

    Before being bound by a credit agreement, we are obliged to provide you with a standardised information document called the Standard European Consumer Credit Information (‘SECCI’) form. It is designed to give you the best overview of the key information and terms and conditions of any credit agreement you consider, allowing you to compare the offers of different credit providers and select the credit offer that works best for you. The SECCI contains important details such as: the type of credit, amount and costs of credit, the Annual Percentage Rate (APR), the number and frequency of payments, as well as a note on important legal aspects.

    Discounted Rate

    Loan Discount offer is available with respect to new Personal Loan applications only and is subject to availability. To avail of the optional discounted rate, you must repay the loan from your KBC current account by direct debit. If you cease paying your KBC Personal Loan by direct debit from your KBC current account, you will lose the discount. The discounted rate is a discount on the standard personal loan rate which equates to a 1% discount on the Annual Percentage Rate (“APR”), which may vary.

    Please note that you are not obliged to avail of the “Discounted Personal Loan Rate” and you can open a KBC Personal Loan and a KBC Current Account without availing of the Discounted Personal Loan Rate. Fees and Charges and Terms and Conditions are applicable to the KBC Current Account.

    Please note there are no additional fees applicable for the Discounted Personal Loan Rate however there are fees and charges applicable in connection with the Personal Loan account, details of which will be set out in the Personal Loan Terms and Conditions that will be issued to you if your application is approved

    Flexible Terms

    Personal loans for home improvement and certain other purposes will be considered for terms up to 10 years, subject to borrowing amount.

    For more information about our longer term options please contact us.

    Control - You can repay your loan early

    There is no early repayment charge if the total amount repaid early is less than €10,000. For amounts of €10,000 or more, you will be obliged to pay a charge. The charge will be 1% of the amount repaid early if more than one year of the term of the loan remains. If one year or less of the term remains, the charge will be 0.5% of the amount repaid early

  • Handy representative example:

    €10,000 fixed rate loan over 5 years (60 months).
    Monthly repayments of €193.93.
    Rate of interest 6.13% p.a. fixed.
    Representative Annual Percentage Rate (APR) 6.30%.

    Total cost of credit would be €1,635.98.
    Total amount repayable would be €11,635.98.

    This represents a saving of over €265 compared to the equivalent standard KBC Personal Loan. Example is based on the KBC Current Account discounted rate and adhering to the terms and conditions. 

    Repayments must be made from a KBC Current Account.
