About Low Credit Loans UK
When it comes to being approved for short term loans, your options can be somewhat limited if you don’t have the best credit score. This is due in part to the fact that credit scores are designed to reflect your previous borrowing behaviour – a low credit score can signal that you have missed payments on loans or other forms of credit in the past. However, a low score could also be due to simply not having much borrowing history either, which is not necessarily a negative thing.
Whatever the reason for your credit score being low, it will make finding a lender who can help you more difficult, and you will not be eligible for many mainstream loans with a low credit history. However, if you need help to cover emergency costs, a low credit score loan, also known as a bad credit loan, may be suitable as a short term solution.
Low credit loans are designed to help people with a poor credit score borrow money without having to put up collateral, or ask a friend or family member to act as a guarantor. It is important to note that low credit score loans are designed only to be used in an emergency. Low credit loans are an expensive form of borrowing, should not be used as debt consolidation loans, and are not a suitable option for those with long-term financial issues.
About Our Low Credit Score Loans
At QuidMarket, we believe that when you need loans with a low credit history, you should still get a good deal from a great lender. As a FCA authorised lender offering low credit loans in the UK, we always put the best interests of our customers first and follow responsible lending guidelines. We will not approve applications if we believe it could lead to further financial difficulties.
Our low credit loans in the UK are unsecured loans, meaning that we do not ask for collateral or a guarantor. With our short term loans, you can choose flexible repayments between 3 and 6 months to tailor the repayments to your upcoming budget. We do this so that the repayments are sustainably affordable for you. However, if your circumstances change during your loan term, contact QuidMarket immediately and we will try to help you avoid defaulting on the low credit loan by arranging an alternative payment solution.
How We Offer Loans with a Low Credit History
We don’t cut corners to offer low credit loans, nor do we expect our customers to take on disproportionate risks to be approved for loans with a low credit history. We are able to offer low credit score loans because we focus on whether the loan is sustainably affordable for each customer, on a case by case basis.
A big part of this is the fact that each application for low credit loans in the UK that we receive is manually checked by a fully trained member of our team. Sure, it takes a few minutes longer than if we were to automate the process, but we think it’s worth our time. Even with the extra effort we put in, we still strive to offer same day loans wherever possible, so that our customers can make the necessary payment without delay.

The application for loans with a low credit history doesn’t take long, but it’s important to complete it as accurately as possible.
