Your application will be assessed based on various factors including eligibility, credit history and affordability. Following an online application, the result is available within a few minutes.
In a very few cases, your application may be referred to a lender for manual underwriting. In such cases you’ll be notified of the credit decision within 24 hours. If finance is not approved this may be for variety of reasons. You may wish to obtain a copy of your credit file for more info.
How to apply
After your consultation a treatment plan will be drawn up and a document produced showing the full cost of your recommended treatment. If you wish to proceed, the application can be made at the centre with a member of our finance team or over the phone, then emailed to you for completion. In both cases, the application is made to our lender who will notify both you and the centre once the application is approved. This usually takes a few minutes. Once approved, you’ll receive the terms and conditions directly from our lender.
Finance is not available for amounts below £500 so your first consultation costing £150 will not be covered.
The finance provided is for your fertility treatment, whether successful or otherwise, the loan will need to be repaid.
Repaying your loan
If your application is successful, your deposit will be requested before you start treatment and your first monthly direct debit payment will be taken approximately 25 days after you’ve started treatment. You have the right to repay all or part of the loan early at any time.
There is a 14-day cooling off period where you can withdraw from the credit agreement after signing your documents. If you wish to do this just contact us and we’ll cancel your application and refund your deposit. We’ll also make you aware of any outstanding balance if applicable.
