3.3% APR 3.3% (fixed) £135.61 £636.60 £8,136.60

Our Price Promise

The majority of our customers receive the advertised rate. However, if you complete an application directly via the Hitachi Personal Finance website and are given a higher APR, we guarantee that you'll never pay more than £188.16 per month with our maximum 18.9% APR Representative when you borrow £7,500 over 5 years*.

And remember - if you apply for a shorter term and are offered a higher rate you will be able to increase the number of months you use to repay the loan to reduce your monthly payments to suit your budget. 

Just one of the reasons we’ve been voted the UK’s Best Direct Loan Provider by Your Money for the last four years.
