Loan.Me is a broker, not a lender, and works with an exclusive range of lenders in return for a commission fee. We don’t directly offer loans. We allow customers to access our network of UK short term and installment lenders through our online form. We match customers with lenders in our network.
There are a variety of loans available for consumers. It’s important to understand the differences between them to see which one best suits your individual needs. Guarantor loans include an additional person on the loan, such as a friend or family member, who agree to repay the loan should the borrower miss a payment. Short term loans are small (usually under £1,000), no-collateral cash advances that are backed by future income. Personal unsecured loans are loans that are not secured against your assets, meaning they don’t require any form of collateral. Instalment loans can range up to several months and payments are spread out over the term of the loan.
The online application takes a few minutes to complete. Loan.Me will then run your application through our network of lenders in an attempt to match you with a qualified lender. This process takes minutes. If your application is accepted, you will be forwarded to the lender’s completion page so that you can sign for your loan electronically.
In most cases, if you are accepted by a lender, the transfer into your bank account could happen as early as the next business day. This will vary depending upon your lender as well as your financial institution. If you have additional questions regarding the transfer time, please contact your lender.
The eligibility criteria varies by lender. There are, however, standard criteria requirements that you will be expected to meet in order to apply. This includes the fact that you must be aged 18 years or older, live in the UK, have an active bank account into which you can receive direct debits and have a regular source of income.
For a typical 30 day loan of £400, our Representative APR is 728.9%. Please note that your APR is likely to differ from this figure, as no two applicants are the same. No loan terms are truly typical or representative, and your credit profile might have an impact on the loan terms a lender offers you.
If you have any issues repaying your loan, please contact your lender directly. They will be able to discuss repayment options with you. If you have more serious concerns about managing your money, you may contact Money Advice Service (www.moneyadviceservice.org.uk). Money Advice Service offers free advice to those who need to manage their money more effectively.
