Personal Loans for Bad Credit

Personal Loans FAQs


Do Personal Loans Have a High APR Like Payday Loans?

You may find that personal payday loans often have a higher APR than a lot of other types of loan. The personal loans that we offer at LoanPig are a type of short term loan, with most loans typically being borrowed between 3 to 6 months. This means that the interest you will see on your personal loan after 3 months won’t be as high as the APR might make you first think. As we work to FCA guidelines, we make sure you will never be asked to pay back more than double the amount of your personal loan, no matter how long you have it or how high the APR is. Use our loan payment calculator to determine how much the interest will be on the amount and terms you choose.


How Soon Can I Access My Personal Loan Funds?

Many of the lenders on our panel have different pay-out times and the limitations of your bank can also influence the time it takes to receive your funds. However, we aim to get you your personal payday loans as fast as possible. If you apply for your short term personal loans before 3 PM, Monday to Friday, there is a good possibility you will be able to get your funds on the same day. Otherwise, we will do our best to make sure that your personal loan gets to you with 24 hours (on a working day).


Will A Bad Credit Score Affect My Personal Loan Application?

While we and our lenders do our best to protect our customers from receiving personal loans that they can’t afford, a bad credit score won’t always influence our decision. When you apply for emergency personal loans through LoanPig, credit and affordability checks are performed not only to check your eligibility, but also to ensure that no one is trying to take a loan out with your information other than yourself. We have a high acceptance rate and the flexibility that we offer with our loans means that we can help you find a personal loan that is affordable and meets your needs.


What Should I Do If I Can’t Make A Repayment on my Personal Loan?

If you can’t make a repayment for any reason, the first thing you should do is talk to your lender. If you miss your loan repayment date without making a repayment, you could face a £15 fine and until you make the payment, the interest on your loan will increase by 8% daily. If before the repayment date you advise the lender, however, they may be able to defer the repayment or discuss putting together an affordable payment plan. You should always check the repayment schedule as detailed in your credit agreement and ensure enough funds are clear in your bank account to avoid this happening.
