What is Consumer Hire Purchase?

Hire Purchase, also known as Car Finance, is a credit agreement allowing you to purchase your vehicle through payment of regular fixed instalments.

Our Consumer Hire Purchase Loan offers you:

  • Minimum loan amount €5,000

  • Fixed interest rate
  • 10% deposit/equity required
  • The vehicle is owned by Permanent TSB Asset Finance until you have paid all regular fixed instalments and the purchase instalment of €63.33. You will then automatically own the vehicle.
