What is the cheapest way to borrow money fast?
The cheapest way to borrow money would be to get a low-interest credit card or an interest-free loan. As great as these sound, they do not really exist. However, you may have family and friends that you can ask for an interest-free loan. Remember, when you borrow money from family, they are not a lender; they trust you. Be careful not to abuse that trust – make sure to pay back the money when they expect it back. It’s not worth scaring relationships because of money.
Can I borrow money with bad credit?
There are many ways to borrow money, even if you have a bad credit score. The best way for you to borrow money will depend on how much money you need and what you want the money for. If you need a short term loan to fix an appliance or for an emergency and you have a bad credit score, a payday loan online from a direct lender will probably suit you best. Many of our customers have a bad credit score. As long as you are able to make the repayments, you can apply with us. Remember, do not be attempted to borrow a loan with no lending check from an online lender, even one that has a low interest rate, – as an FCA requirement, lenders must perform a responsible lending check on all applicants.

Will taking out a loan affect my credit report?
Applying for and taking out short term loans will affect your credit file and credit rating in some way. Most lenders will do a hard credit check on the applicant once they have applied for a loan. If you manage to pay your loan on time, it can build you a good credit rating. However, if you show you are having problems making the repayments, a poor credit history may develop on your credit file. Either way, applying for a loan or taking out a loan will always leave a credit footprint.
Note: It’s recommended to check your credit report for mistakes before taking out a loan. You can get this free yearly from leading Credit Reference Agencies in the UK.
What loans should I be cautious about when borrowing money?
What should I do if I can not meet the loan repayments on time?
Sometimes financial circumstances may change, and you may struggle with the repayment terms of money borrowed. It’s essential to contact your lender as soon as you think you will have problems with repayments. Most lenders will be understanding and may be able to offer you lower interest rates or an interest-free period. For help with debt problems or loan repayments, go to moneyhelper.org.uk.
How can I borrow money online safely?
Keeping safe online when applying for a loan is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your financial stability. When researching a potential lender, there are a few things you can look out for on their website which will show their legitimacy. Check if their full contact details are clearly written and if they are registered with the Financial Conduct Authority on the Financial Services Register. You should be able to click on the registration number, which will take you to the FCA website. Another safety measure you can take when looking to borrow money safely online is to look if the website has HTTPS (the secure connection).
