Newcastle Permanent Personal Loan (Fixed, Unsecured) personal loan review

Overall rating   7 / 10

Great customer service, good follow up

I found this bank is a little conservative when applying for a loan. If their computer program says you can't afford it, they don't approve you - even if you are changing to a lower interest rate and currently paying double the repayments!

Customer service comes first

I am very happy with the Newcastle Permanent Building Society as they were very helpful, excellent interest rate. The manager bent over backwards when we changed from another institution who didn't care about our situation.

It gets harder and harder these days to deal with human beings doing human being things, the Permanent knows exactly that the difference is connecting with people and make it pleasantly obvious they love to assist. I've had a number of different experiences over the last decade and I love dealing with humans. Personalities are hard to come by, that's what the Perm means to me!

Compare more personal loans

Look for a specific type of personal loan:

*The Comparison Rate combines the lender's interest rate, fees and charges into a single rate to show the true cost of a personal loan. The comparison rates displayed are for the amounts and terms quoted, based on monthly principal and interest repayments, on a secured basis for secured loans and an unsecured basis for unsecured loans, and apply only to these examples. Different amounts and terms will result in different comparison rates. Full comparison rate schedules are available from lenders. Costs such as redraw fees or early repayment fees, and savings such as fee waivers, are not included in the comparison rate but may influence the cost of the loan.
