At Moneyboat we believe that whatever your reasons for needing a loan, you should compare what’s available on the market and choose the best option for your circumstances.

What’s a quickquid all about?
Sometimes we all need access to cash, and fast. Some of us are lucky enough to be able to dip into savings when our car breaks down, while others may need to access a short term loan to help cover essential costs. QuickQuid was a popular lender of payday loans, but it also found itself in deep water when it came to irresponsible lending. Here at Moneyboat, we provide fair and affordable loans to borrowers who need fast cash to cover unexpected costs.
QuickQuid, like many other traditional payday lenders, collapsed as a result of the sheer number of their customers claiming compensation for being sold loans they could not afford to repay. As a responsible short-term lender, Moneyboat ensures that we carry out full affordability checks on our borrowers, only lending to those who have the financial means to meet the repayment plan agreed.
Looking for Quickquid or Quick Quid?
As mentioned before, chances are that you reached us by typing 'quid’, ‘quick quid’, or quickquid into your search bar while looking for a payday loan. It’s understandable that you would want to obtain a QuickQuid loan. It was one of the most advertised companies in the UK’s lending industry and was, therefore, a well-known brand name.
In light of QuickQuid's demise, it's time to reassess the kind of loan you want to take out. The truth is, QuickQuid is just one of the latest in a line of old-fashioned payday lenders who have fallen foul of pressure from the Financial Conduct Authority and the Financial Ombudsman to clean up the industry.
Payday lenders who expect total repayment of loans on your next payday are operating unsustainably and often unfairly. We can offer you a safer, fairer alternative when you need access to a quick quid.
We think it’s a good idea to have many QuickQuid alternatives available so you can compare and decide which one suits you best.

You talk, we listen
We understand that things can get a little tough. Sometimes your cash flow can reduce to no more than a trickle as payday approaches.

If you are struggling to repay your loan with us, speak to us as soon as possible so we can help you avoid a debt spiral.
What you need to know about credit
When you have bad credit, getting a loan, whether long term or short term, can be quite difficult. Your credit isn’t always bad because of things under your control. Sometimes, it may have been one bad incident that leads to another.
Of course, you will have plenty of options online from lenders that offer loans to borrowers with bad credit. However, this isn’t necessarily a good thing. For one, you’re probably not going to get good deals on these sites because of your bad credit.
At Moneyboat, we understand that there is a lot more to our customers than their credit history. We don’t judge solely based on the information on your credit report. We will take into consideration a lot of different factors when determining whether to approve you for a loan. This means that, even if you have bad credit, you could still be approved for a loan if you have a strong income or employment record, for example.
We won’t charge you to receive funds on the same day either. Coupled with our high rates of acceptance on our clients, this makes us a great QuickQuid alternative for you.
How safe is it to get a quick quid loan alternative from Moneyboat?
The terms of a loan from a responsible lender should be presented to you clearly on the company’s website. This is exactly what you get with Moneyboat. It's also a good idea, as the borrower, to have a clear idea of what you want. Ask yourself:
- How much can I afford to repay?
- How much do I need to borrow?
- Is my income secure?
- How long will I need to repay the loan?
- Are there cheaper alternatives I could consider, like borrowing from family or friends?
