Get Smart. Pay Smart.
Instalment Plan Option | Spread your bigger credit card purchases of €250 or more at a great low rate of 6.7% variable (6.9% Annual Percentage Rate).


What is an Instalment Plan?

  • The Instalment Plan option enables you to transfer a credit card purchase of €250 or more onto a lower rate of 6.7% variable (6.9% APR).
  • Spreads the cost of the purchase. You pay it off in either 6, 12 or 24 equal monthly instalments meaning you won’t have to pay full amount off at the next payment day.
  • It’s perfect for big spends or even unexpected costs that might pop up.

It's simple to set up

All you have to do is make your purchase of €250 or more in value and then contact us before your next payment is due to let us know which item you want to move to an instalment plan. You can let us know by completing an online Instalment Plan request form or by calling us on 0818 251 251. You can also set up an instalment plan at the point of sale in certain retailers where available.
