How much will a £20,000 loan cost?


The cost of your £20,000 loan will depend on a range of things:

  • The interest rate or APR on your loan – this will be set by your lender and will be based on your individual circumstances and credit score

  • How long you borrow the money – you can specify this when you make your application

The longer the loan term the cheaper your monthly repayment – but you’ll pay more interest overall, so it will be more expensive. 

Use our loan calculator to work out the cost of a £20,000 loan.

Can I get a £20,000 loan with bad credit?

If you’ve had debt problems in the past and you have a low credit score, it’s likely to be more difficult to get a £20,000 loan.

But you may be able to:

  • Borrow a smaller loan amount
  • Use specialist lenders who can offer bad credit loan deals

Expect to be offered higher interest rates if you have got a less than perfect credit history.

With a pre-approved loan, the deal you see is the deal you get

When you apply for a loan, it’s not always clear what deal you’ll be offered or whether you’ll be accepted. But when you’re pre-approved for a loan, you know the deal you see is the deal you’ll get – you’ll know where you stand, with information that will help you make the right choice.

APR stands for annual percentage rate, and it basically means the interest rate at which you’ll pay back the £10,000. It includes the main interest rate of the loan, but also takes any other fees and charges into account so you get a better picture of the loan’s total cost.

When you see a representative APR advertised on a loan, it means this rate must be offered to at least 51% of applicants – you won’t be guaranteed to get this rate yourself, as this will be based on your personal circumstances.


A soft search is how we find out where you stand in terms of getting a loan without affecting your credit report, so you can 
find a loan you’ll be eligible for without damaging your chances of being successful when you apply.


For an unsecured personal loan of £20,000 you’re likely to need a strong credit score to be eligible. Other loan options could be available if your credit score is lower, such as secured loans, but you may not be able to borrow as much as £20,000. 


When you take out a secured loan you must put up a valuable asset, usually your home, as security against the debt. This means if you struggle to repay your home is at risk as the lender can force a sale of the property to recoup its losses. In contrast, with an unsecured loan you don’t need to put up any collateral or asset as security on your borrowing. Find out more about the differences between the two loan types in our guide to secured and unsecured loans.
