The APR on the loans is currently around 49.4%.

Amigo Loans

One of the most high-profile lenders in the market thanks to their significant television presence,

Amigo’s aim is to "return to good old-fashioned lending values". With over 65,000 customers they are a solid and dependable lender. It is possible to borrow between £500 and £5000 for up to five years.

There are several payment methods available including at ‘PayPoint’ approved shops and their payment hotline is available 24 hours a day.

There is no fee for overpayment and with regular feedback being given to the three major credit agencies your credit score will improve over the term of the loan.

Interest is charged daily so regular overpayment will help reduce the overall cost of the loan and with so many payment options this should be manageable.

Your application must be supported by a UK homeowner aged between 18 and 75 with a good credit history and not financially dependent on you.

UK Credit Loans

Lenders since 2010, UK Credit offer two different types of loan; one to homeowners and one to tenants. A homeowner can borrow a maximum of £7500 for up to five years while a non-homeowner can borrow up to £3000 for a maximum term of 36 months.

The interest rate is fixed for the duration of the borrowing period so applicants know exactly how much will need to be paid back each month. Both loans require someone, usually a friend or family member, to act as the ‘backer’; someone who will pay off any debts should the borrower fail to make the repayments.

For this reason the backer will need to have a good credit history but it is not essential that they are a homeowner.

Trustpilot, the consumer review website, recently awarded UK Credit Loans top ranking and their team have a wealth of experience in the financial market.

The customer services team can be contacted 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday and on Saturday mornings.
