What Loantra can do for You

Small Loans Without Credit Checks

Do you need small loans without credit checks?

If you have a bad credit score, then it can sometimes feel like you contracted cooties. Suddenly, no lender wants to deal with you and you can find your custom being turned away everywhere you go. It’s certainly not a nice feeling and it can be particularly distressing if you badly need the money in order to afford reparations to your home, to run your vehicle or to keep up with your financial commitments.

Fortunately, there is always a way and with so many different financial products available you can almost always find a solution to suit your requirements. Let’s take a look at some of them…

Payday Loans

Payday loans are small loans that you take out over a short period of time and usually pay off in a single payment. These loans tend to come with very high APR, meaning that you are paying a lot of interest over the course of a year. But because the amount is so small and the duration is so short, this won’t usually be a problem.

When you take out a payday loan, you’ll normally be paying it off over a couple of weeks or maybe months and by choosing the duration and amount using an online tool, you should be able to get an accurate prediction for the total you’ll pay including fees. Because the loan is so small and the APR is so high, these companies can normally afford to offer their small loans without credit checks.


Installment Loans

If you need a little more money over a slightly longer period though, then installment loans may be a safer option. These are loans that are similar to payday loans except that you will pay them off in a series of small installments and the APR will likely be closer to 50%.

A great added advantage here is that by using installment loans, you are making multiple smaller payments and thereby demonstrating an ability to make repayments on time. This is great for your credit score and can fix the bad rating you had previously.

PayPal Loans

If you can’t find a loan you like online, another option is to try a PayPal loan. The fees here are actually relatively very high – possibly even comparable to some payday loans. However, because you are going through PayPal, your eligibility is based on your use of PayPal and not your general financial history. And failure to pay back the loan won’t result in any marks against you. Repayments also come out of payments you receive via PayPal!

Pawnbroker Loans

Another way to get small loans without credit checks is to go to a pawnbrokers and offer an item as collateral. They will assess the value of the item and then use this as a way to secure the loan.

There are more ways to get small loans without credit checks too, so keep looking and don’t give up. If you need the money, you should be able to find at least one option that will be suitable for your requirements.

Review of Natwest

My personal loan from NatWest was planned in advance because I like to do plenty of research before committing to something as important as a building extension. I wanted to make sure the loan would be possible and that it was at a competitive rate before I started employing architects and builders. I was in regular contact with our local branch’s loan adviser and they finally sorted out a very good loan for me and once that was agreed I got on to the job of planning this extension. We’d already had the go ahead from the local council so it was all systems go once that all important loan was finalised. Sometimes it’s best to deal with your own bank for such an important loan and I am pleased that I entrusted NatWest with my loan.

Review of U Switch

In our position your company treats us well. We have the income but unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control our credit rating is bad. Thank you Uswitch for giving us a chance.

Review of Wonga

Suprised at ease of application. Never wanted to use these kind of things but had a very tough month and needed a few pounds before payday. After checking different options I found the small amount to payback manageable and it’s all payed back 2 days after payday. Easy process with quick response.
