Which type of loan works for you?


Personal loan

A personal loan, also known as an unsecured loan, doesn’t require you to put up something you own as collateral. You’ll be more likely to be accepted for a personal loan if you have a good credit score and a credit history that shows lenders you can manage credit sensibly.


Secured loans

With a secured loan or a homeowner loan, you need to put up an asset you own as a guarantee you’ll pay back what you’ve borrowed. It's important that you make the loan repayments on time—not doing so means that you could lose your home.


Guarantor loans

If you have a low credit score, a guarantor loan may be suitable for you. With this type of loan, you need a guarantor, who promises to make your repayments for you if you can’t keep up with them. People usually ask a family member, but your guarantor doesn’t have to be a relative.


Debt consolidation loans

This type of loan is an option if you have several debts with personal loans, credit cards or store cards. A debt consolidation loan allows you to move the balances on your debts into one loan. By having one monthly repayment instead of several, you might find makes it easier to manage paying off your debt.

How can I get a loan if I have a bad credit score?

If you have a low credit score, there could still be a personal loan for you.

You may need to pay more interest - the average APR is 56% - or you may have to offer security, such as a house, car or savings account.

But if you make your payments on time and in full, this can help you grow your credit score and unlock better offers.

What is a soft and hard credit search?

A soft search will occur when a lender assesses your eligibility for a product. Only you can see the soft searches on your credit report, and they have no impact on your credit score. A hard search is conducted by the lender after you apply for a credit product, which will leave a record on your report. It’s common for a hard search to affect your credit score, but as long as you borrow responsibly the impact should be short term.
