Who is Premium Credit Ltd?
We offer our customers a convenient way to pay for their policy. Using our preferred provider, Premium Credit Limited (PCL), you have the option of setting up a Direct Debit facility. This means that you pay a deposit (if applicable) and pay the balance of your premium over equal monthly instalments.
About Premium Credit Limited (PCL)
We solely use PCL to provide finance to Endsleigh customers. We may receive a commission for introducing customers to them. Please note, any information we provide you with does not constitute advice or a personal recommendation. Your personal information and the bank details you provide to us will be passed to them and they will contact you via mail, email or text. Credit is subject to status and they may use a credit reference agency that leaves a record of the search, or other information about you, to carry out credit and anti-money laundering checks. PCL may also make credit assessments based upon any previous payment history you may have had with them.
1. Who is PCL?
PCL is Endsleigh’s chosen provider for its monthly payment facility. With more than 2 million customers, processing more than 25 million direct debits and £3.7 billion in advances through 4,000 intermediaries, PCL has been recognised as the number 1 Insurance Premium Finance Company in the UK and Ireland*. (*Source PCL website – December 2014)
2. Why do we have to deal with PCL – why not just Endsleigh?
Endsleigh’s expertise is in arranging insurance policies; we are not a premium financing company and therefore, we do not have “lending” permissions from the Financial Conduct Authority. This means that we cannot provide the financing to facilitate a Direct Debit payment plan, therefore we introduce our customers to PCL. For clarity of description PCL is “The Lender” whilst Endsleigh acts as a “Credit Broker”.
3. Can anyone make use of the monthly payment plan facility?
Credit is subject to status. To be eligible, customers must: - be 18 years old or over. - hold a UK bank account (capable of accepting Direct Debit instructions). - not have been declared bankrupt in the last 12 months. - not have entered into an Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA). - not had 2 or more unsatisfied County Court Judgments (CCJs)* against them in the last 12 months. - not had more than 3 unsatisfied County Court Judgments (CCJs)* in the last 2 years. * or any other judgment(s) in relation to debt
4. Why do I need to sign the PCL credit agreement?
It is important the loan agreement is signed. A fee of £10 may be charged where the agreement is not signed and returned to PCL within the specified period of time. Full details of the agreement will be supplied by PCL as part of the setting up of the credit agreement.
5. How do I sign the PCL credit agreement?
The easiest way to sign the credit agreement is online. By following the link www.uk.mypremiumcredit.com/ Account/Login, you will be able to register your account and sign the agreement. Once your account has been set up, you will be able to track and manage your payments, as well as update your personal details. Should you not sign the agreement online, a copy will be sent out to you in the post for you to sign and return.
6. What name will I see collecting payment on my bank statement?
