Why choose MoneyBoat for payday loans?
As an FCA Authorised lender, our loan products are designed to be provided rapidly upon approval and debts can be cleared quickly with regular repayments. We offer an alternative to payday loans, with greater levels of repayment flexibility. Some additional benefits of choosing Moneyboat are:

What does short term mean when it comes to loans?
Firstly, term loans is a phrase used to describe loans that are repaid in instalments over a period of time, usually agreed at the beginning of the loan term. Term loans can take the form of a long term personal loan, or shorter term loans, like payday loans or instalment loans.
Shorter term loans are cash allowances that are scheduled to be repaid within 6 months. They are usually for smaller amounts than mortgages and can be approved on the same day of application. Shorter term loan repayments are made in manageable instalments within the contract period and include a fixed interest rate, included in our terms. They could be used to meet an unexpected cost, provide funds before payday or cover emergency appliance repairs.

Will I be guaranteed approval when borrowing from Moneyboat?
While we pride ourselves on offering flexible loan agreements over a short term period, we cannot guarantee that every applicant will be approved. Check that you meet our minimum shorter term loans requirements prior to application to avoid disappointment. Our loans decision will be based on whether we feel you can make the required payment when the instalments are due and throughout the entire term of the loan.
Can I choose to get a short loan with no guarantor?
Yes – no guarantor is required to apply for one of our shorter term loans online with Moneyboat. Regardless of the amount you are borrowing, our priority is taking into account your individual financial needs in order to provide a personalised and affordable loan solution and repayment schedule.
Short term credit arrangements, such as payday loans and short term loans, may help you in a financial emergency or meet an unexpected expense. They can be used to avoid charges for things like void cheques, unauthorised bank overdrafts and credit card fees, helping you protect your credit rating. Our credit applications can be approved in a few hours and repayments can be personalised to suit your individual requirements.
How do repayments work when borrowing over the short term?
New customers can borrow from £200 to £800. Loans are repayable over a minimum term of two instalments (could be weekly or monthly, depending on the customer’s pay dates) and a maximum of six months, which means you don’t have to repay the entire balance of your loan on your next payday. The minimum duration for the first instalment is five days. Existing customers can borrow up to £1500, subject to passing our credit and affordability checks. We do not require full repayment in 60 days, however, customers may pay back their loans early with no penalties or fees.

What can shorter term loans be used for?
While there is no fixed purpose for a loan, there are a number of different applications that the money may be useful for. A short term loan can work to help borrowers get out of a difficult financial position in the short term, or pay for an unexpected expense. Some of the common uses include:
Having a number of outstanding debts can be overwhelming and stressful for many people. Consolidating a number of existing debts and repayment schedules into a more manageable lump sum through us can reduce the financial burden of your credit and help you get back on your feet before payday. A loan can be used to pay off a number of smaller debts, with repayments only required for the one loan thereafter.
Many people do not have the money set aside to deal with unforeseen repairs, such as a boiler breakdown, oven malfunction or vehicle damage. If your car, oven or boiler is an immediate necessity and you need it fixed quickly, short term lending can provide the money you need to get the required repairs done without having to wait until your next payday. Unlike some payday lenders, we offer more flexible repayment terms to enable us to help a large number of borrowers who could never afford to cover unexpected costs before payday, but without adding to their debt problems
We all have months where we find ourselves paying out more money than usual. If you cannot afford to meet these extra expenses but are sure you can afford repayments, a loan may be the best solution over a short term period. A flexible payment schedule can help you to meet repayment responsibilities over a number of months.
What if my credit score or circumstances change?
If your circumstances change and you are struggling to make repayments under your current credit terms, let a member of our team know. We will do everything we can to help you get your payments back on track but it is important to remember that short term lending, such as payday loans, is not a suitable mode of credit to provide a long term financial solution. If you are experiencing financial difficulties, contact us directly and seek advice from a free and impartial organisation if you feel you need to.

Are short term loans safe?
Before applying for a loan, you need to evaluate your current financial situation and make sure that you can afford the required repayments. It is important to us that we make sure you are borrowing from a Financial Conduct Authority-approved and regulated lender like Moneyboat to ensure you get a fair deal. Never consider making a credit application with an unauthorised lender or broker.
Short term loans are not a suitable credit solution to a long-term financial problem and you need to make sure that you educate yourself about the alternatives before applying.
