ALMOST all of us at some stage want (or need!) to get away from it all and go on a holiday break. Be it just for a few days, a week, a fortnight or even a whole month. That special time away from all the daily routines can be just what you need to recharge the batteries and reduce stress. Whether you’re looking for THE ‘I can’t wait to see their faces’ ONCE-IN- A-LIFETIME FAMILY HOLIDAY LOAN, or THE ‘I think I might break if I don’t get away soon’ SHORT BREAK LOAN, come and talk to your local credit union.

Our philosophy has always been to look at things differently. We understand the difference a holiday loan can make to your life – creating memories and high points to look forward to, so we always look at your whole story to make sure you arrive at the perfect destination. We only propose holiday loans with realistic terms, which you can pay back in a way that works best for you. Letterkenny Credit Union was established over 50 years ago and is here to try and help you make your holiday a reality.


If you need a holiday loan your credit union can help you settle on an amount that is realistic for your circumstances and on a realistic term that won’t mean paying off your annual holiday over many years. The great thing about a holiday loan at Letterkenny Credit Union is that there are no hidden fees or transaction charges and credit union interest rates are fair and reasonable and are capped by law.

Repayments are calculated on your reducing balance, so you pay less interest with each repayment. Your credit union loan is also insured in the event of your death – subject to terms and conditions – at no direct cost to you. Other lenders charge for this. You can pay off your loan early, make additional lump sum repayments or increase your regular repayments all without a penalty. Remember, in your local credit union, you are not a customer, you are a valued member.

Don’t forget to talk to your credit union about some of the great holiday insurance options available to members at great costs. Holiday Insurance is a website based product.
