The latest offer in the mortgage market comes from Lloyds TSB which has introduced a new Airmiles mortgage. The Lloyds TSB mortgage is not as novel as it sounds, the Airmiles being provided for taking out the mortgage, customers are not able to pay it off using them. The three tear fixed rate offer gives customers 50 Airmiles when signing up plus a further 6,000 when it is completed. The interest rate on the mortgage begins at 5.89 percent depending on applicant circumstances. As a spokeswoman from Lloyds TSB said, this new mortgage combines a good rate of interest, a decent length fixed term and also a practical and useful reward that customers can use.
Esure are reminding the new students headed for university this year that home insurance cover is something that should not be overlooked. The typical student will have around GBP1,500 worth of items they take with them when they go to university and without proper home insurance cover this could all be lost. Parents often help out with student insurance cover, though Esure found nearly a quarter of them had not thought about the matter. Cover can be arranged quite easily for most students, sometimes having their own policy or alternatively using existing home insurance that their parents have. A number of insurers will include separate cover for students accommodation on the main home policy said Esure.
