What are Short Term Loans Used for? 

Short term loans can be used for a variety of purposes. This can include paying off household bills, weddings, car payments, business expenses, debt consolidation, holidays and more.

With loans starting from £100 up to £25,000, the purpose of short term loans can range from paying off emergency bills to lifestyle purchases. These could be items such as a new car or to cover costs for moving home.

Short term loans can essentially fill the gap for people who are not being offered credit by mainstream banks and credit card companies. They can allow you to borrow money and pay back on terms that better suit you.

Being short term, you know that you are not tied in for a long period of time. You always have the option to clear your account sooner and will often save money for doing so.

How Much Can I Borrow with a Short Term Loan?

Customers can apply to borrow up to £25,000 repaid over a maximum of 60 months (5 years). The amount you can borrow is based on your income, affordability and credit status. Typically, the higher your income, the lower your expenses and less debt you have outstanding will help you borrow the maximum amount.

A good credit rating is key to maximising the amount you can borrow. If you have a history of paying off similar loans, credit cards and other financial commitments on time, it will help strengthen your loan application.

Can I Get a Short Term Loan with Bad Credit?

Yes, it is possible to get short term loans for people with bad credit.  Some lenders are willing to take a view on people with recent defaults, CCJs and similar.

The lenders we work with at Badger Loans will usually run a credit check during the application. If you have bad credit, they will still consider your application if you have paid off recent loans and your credit score is improving.

Equally, the lender may just charge a slightly higher interest rate. Or they could lower the amount you can borrow, just to manage their risk.

In some cases, you may be required to provide extra security such as getting a loan with a guarantor. You could also use a valuable asset such as car, property or similar item as collateral.

  • Over 18 years of age
  • Full-time UK resident
  • No guarantor required
  • Employed with a stable income
