£300 Loan Direct Lender With A Difference

Being able to resolve emergency payments without delay can make a huge difference. If you need a £300 loan today, you can be confident that we’ll do our very best to ensure that your loan application is as quick and straightforward as possible. We’re able to offer same day loans to many of our customers because we’ve streamlined our process in many ways.

One area that we do spend a little extra time on, however, is looking over your loan application. Every application is manually checked carefully so that we can offer loans that are sustainable for our customers. Whilst it takes a few minutes longer than if we were to automate the process, it allows us to offer loans for £300 that are tailored to your financial situation. We cannot approve every application we receive, but for those we can help, you will have an affordable option tailored to you.

£300 Loans That Consider Bad Credit

It may seem difficult to get loan approval if you have a low credit score. As your credit rating can drop due to reasons including arrears payments or even defaulting on loans, some lenders may see you as a risk when assessing your finances. However, there are many other reasons you could have a low credit score, and it takes time to rebuild it.

At QuidMarket, there are no false promises with our loans. We prioritise responsible lending over guaranteed approval, so we will consider £300 loans for bad credit if the repayments are sustainable, meaning we cannot approve every customer with a poor credit history, but we won’t automatically disqualify you either. When making lending decisions for our loans, we look at your finances and essential outgoings – if you can sustainably afford the repayments on a loan between 3 – 6 months, we may be able to provide the help you need that suits your budget.

  • 01 Emergency expenses

    Pay for unexpected or emergency expenses such as car repairs, medical bills, or home repairs. An urgent £300 loan can help resolve these issues with affordable repayments.

  • 02 Credit repair

    Sustaining a bad credit loan can help improve your credit score, making it easier to access credit in the future.

  • 03 Cash flow issues

£300 Loan FAQs

Our £300 loans are designed for individuals in need of emergency cash, looking to repay over 3 – 6 months. These payday loans can be used in urgent situations, such as for unexpected bills or expenses that cannot wait until your next payday. However, as they are a type of emergency loan, you should only apply if you have exhausted all other options such as emergency savings. At QuidMarket, we make it simple for you to decide if our loans are the best option for you by stating our costs and processes upfront, ensuring complete transparency. You should spend some time deciding on an affordable repayment term and apply if this is the best option for you and your finances.

We aim to help people in all circumstances overcome financial emergencies, including those with bad credit where possible. Our underwriters review manually whether you can sustainably afford the repayments you’ve chosen. In some circumstances, we can look to support those with a poor credit history, but this cannot be guaranteed. We will review your monthly income, essential spending, and other financial commitments to ensure that you will not be left in further financial difficulties. Your credit rating is not the sole deciding factor, so whether you have a history of defaults or arrears, we may be able to provide a tailored loan to suit your finances.

You can use our loan calculator to see how much you will be repaying each month on your chosen loan amount before you apply. As responsible lenders, we follow FCA guidelines on costs, which means you will never pay more than 100% of the original loan amount (including interest). We are fully transparent with our loans and there are no hidden fees, so you can see exactly what the loan will cost overall. You will be able to review your pre-contract agreement to see the full details of your loan before proceeding.

We offer short term loans between £300 and £600 for new customers, meaning we cannot offer loans for a smaller amount than this. The minimum loan amount ensures the repayments you choose are affordable for the loan terms available. Applying for a loan is a significant financial decision, even for small amounts, so it is essential to consider what you can afford and how much you will be repaying overall. Consider other options first if a £300 cash loan is more than you currently need, such as emergency savings or help from friends and family.

Yes, you can apply for up to a £600 loan as a new customer. If you successfully repay your first loan with us, you may be eligible to apply for a loan of up to £1,500 as a returning customer. We need to ensure your first loan is sustainable, so once this has been settled in full, you are welcome to apply again in future if you need to. Please note, we cannot guarantee approval, and you should only apply for the loan amount you need rather than the maximum available.
