Applying for a Short Term Loan

Man looking happily at his phone in the city

If you are considering applying for a short-term loan, then MoneyBoat may be able to help you. We are a safe, transparent and flexible direct lender, offering short term loans at an interest rate of 0.7% a day as opposed to the more common 0.8% imposed by other lenders (which is the price cap set by the FCA). Additionally, we have UK-based support available for all of our customers and we allow you to repay your loan in numerous instalments, to help make repaying that little bit easier for you.

How Does the Loan Application Process Work?

When you apply for a personal unsecured loan such as a payday loan, Instalment loan or otherwise with MoneyBoat.co.uk, the application is completed online. Your application is then passed onto our underwriting team who are available to consider your application and process your loan during the weekday hours of 8:30am to 5:30pm. All applicants are credit checked before being approved and we assess applications against our Responsible Lending Policy and lending criteria.

How Much Money Can I Borrow?

With MoneyBoat.co.uk, you can borrow any amount from £200 to £800 or up to £1,500 if you are a returning customer - subject to passing our credit and affordability checks. Furthermore, you do not necessarily have to repay the full loan amount in one single repayment as we are flexible with borrowers, and do allow a number of scheduled repayments.

How Long Until I Receive My Funds?

Funds are usually deposited in your bank account within 24 hours, keeping in mind applications and loans are only processed on weekdays, 8:30am to 5:30pm.
