Some times you might want to pay out your full loan early. When that is the case we won’t charge you any cancellation fees.

Please note: There are fees associated with rescheduling or adjusting a payment and a weekly arrears management fee charged for each week the loan goes past its original scheduled finish date. If your account remains in arrears after 60 days, we may mark your credit file with a default.
