Here are just some of the benefits of getting a bicycle loan from Novuna Personal Finance...

How does a bike loan work?
A bike loan is a type of unsecured loan that allows you to choose how much you want to borrow and over how long. As you’ll be effectively a cash buyer, you can get the bike or motorcycle of your choice from anywhere, including private sellers or dealerships. No restrictions.
It’s simpler than you might think to use a personal loan to buy a bike:
- Apply online in minutes and get an instant decision on your application
- If accepted, read and sign your credit agreement
- The money you need will be with you in just two working days so you can start looking for your new wheels
- Pay back your loan in fixed-rate instalments, with the option to make overpayments or settle your loan early free of charge
What can I use a bike loan for?
A personal loan can be used to fund the bike that suits your lifestyle best. Whether you’re into endurance cycling or seek laid-back rides with your friends or family beside you, you can take out a loan to fund any bike or biking accessories.
Improve your fitness, make your commute more convenient or simply take off on new adventures with a road bike.
Our road bike loans, starting from just £1,000, are a great way to make the cost of a pushbike more manageable.
An e-bike is a great way to get around, whether you’re swapping a stressful commute to cruise the city streets or want to enjoy low-impact exercise.
With an electric bike loan, you can borrow up to £35,000 and pay it back over a term to suit you.
Looking to challenge yourself on that new adrenaline-fuelled trail? A mountain bike is a must-have for fitness fanatics or biking enthusiasts.
With a mountain bike loan you can choose the best model for you, with no deposit required and no restrictions on where you buy your new bike from.
Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned rider adding to your collection, a motorbike loan can help you reach your destination much sooner.
Motorcycle finance allows you to spread the cost of your bike over more manageable monthly repayments.
Get a personal loan
With a personal loan, you’re in the saddle. Simply borrow the money you need and pay it back over a term that suits you. Our personal loans are unsecured, so you won’t need to put up your bike as collateral. Our lending decision will be based on your personal circumstances, credit history, loan amount and term.
There’s no deposit or balloon payment to worry about, and no restrictions on where you buy your bike from. Just fixed-rate monthly repayments that stay the same each month to help you manage your outgoings.
After the first month, you can even choose the date of the rest of your repayments. Simply login to your online account or the Novuna Personal Finance app to manage your loan.
Buy direct from a retailer
If you know exactly which bike you want and where you want to buy it from, you might find the retailer offers finance options. Like a personal loan, retail finance allows you to spread the cost of your purchase. Depending on the retailer you may be offered interest free finance, or you may be charged a fixed interest rate.
You may be faced with greater restrictions on how much you can borrow or how long you can borrow the money for. It’s unlikely you’d be given the option to spread the cost of your bike over 7 years, as you can using a personal loan.
If you do think retail finance is the best option for you, make sure you borrow from a consumer finance provider you can trust. Why not look out for Novuna Personal Finance at the checkout?
Consider bike finance
Bike finance works in an extremely similar way to car finance. When you choose personal contract purchase (PCP) or hire purchase (HP), you’ll be essentially hiring the bike until the end of your term. Then, you can either return it, replace it or pay a final balloon payment / fee to own your bike outright.
As you'll probably need to put down a deposit and there’s likely to be a balloon payment or fee left to pay at the end of your term, your monthly repayments may be lower compared to a loan as you'll ultimately be borrowing less.
That said, you may well end up paying a higher APR. Always look at the total amount repayable and total interest charges – not just your monthly payments – before making a final decision.
