Planesaver Credit Union

How we helped a fellow serviceman save £254 on monthly loan repayments.

Military personnel sometimes have limited access to financial services and particularly affordable credit, leaving them a potential target for high cost credit providers such as payday lenders and loan sharks.

We were recently approached by a serviceman who found himself in a spiral of debt, with a series of high interest Credit Card and Payday loans, with monthly repayments over £555 at an average interest rate of 244% APR.

We were able to lend to the individual responsibly, consolidating his existing debt into one manageable repayment straight from his pay.

We paid off all his existing borrowing, leaving the member with a new monthly repayment of £301 at a more favourable interest rate, meaning he could get back on track with his finances.

The serviceman said "Plane Saver guided me into making better financial decisions, this has made me more aware of how expensive some loans can be. Seeking help from the credit union helped me nearly halve my outgoings on debt. Thank you Plane Saver".
