The Bank of England introduced polymer banknotes to replace existing paper currency back in 2016, citing polymer’s durability, recyclability and increased security as primary reasons for the switch.

Whether you’re an advocate for polymer banknotes or not, we know that there are times when you may experience a financial shortfall and could be considering taking out a loan.
