Boots Hearing Aids
Boots hearing aids prices
The average price of hearing aids at Boots is £2,645 although the complete range spans from £985 to £3,695 for two. Their prices include free aftercare and a number of other benefits.
Boots has a wide range of hearing aids on offer from their Digital Value selection which is lower in cost, to their Premium range at a higher price.
The price range depends on the level of sophistication of the hearing aid. The more technical features, the higher the price. Of course, needing a hearing aid for each ear will also cost double than only needing one.
Do Boots offer finance?
Boots offer interest-free payment plans to help you spread the cost of your hearing aid over 12, 18, 24 months. This may ease the financial burden of your hearing loss and free up your choice of hearing aid to meet your exact needs.
Their plans start at £27 a month and are interest free. The shorter the plan, the more you can repay each month. The more expensive the hearing aid, the longer it may take to repay.
As a guide, if you were to finance two of their most expensive hearing aids at an overall cost of £3,695, on a 24 month plan, you would repay £138.56 a month. With all payment plans, it’s important to read and understand all the terms and conditions.
