Bad credit loans
If you have a bad credit history, it can be hard to secure a loan from mainstream lenders. You may have had trouble keeping up with repayments in the past, received a County Court Judgement or even have no credit history at all. If you need a loan, Morses Club may still be able to help, subject to affordability.
When we talk about bad credit loans, it refers to a type of loan that may be suited to people who have perhaps had a less than perfect credit history. Morses Club may be able to offer you a bad credit loan that could help if you come up against unexpected costs.

How can I get an unsecured loan with a bad credit history?
For those with imperfect credit, some loan companies would require a guarantor to co-sign with you when you apply, who would be responsible for paying back the loan should you not be able to. Morses Club don’t currently offer a guarantor loan option.
At Morses Club we understand that an imperfect credit rating isn’t always the full story. That’s why when you apply for a loan, we don’t just look at your credit score. We consider a range of factors, including your income and the affordability of loan repayments. This builds a fairer picture of your financial situation before we make a decision.
What is a credit score?
Your credit score is used by lenders to help determine whether you qualify for a loan, credit card or other credit. This is based on your credit history and how you've handled your finances historically.
There are many factors that go into determining your Credit Score:
- Information on your credit report such as how much of your available credit you're using and total debt
- Your history of credit account payments
- Credit searches (such as when a credit application is made)
The three main Credit Reference Agencies in the UK that determine your Credit Score are Experian, Equifax and TransUnion. You can go online at any point to any of their websites and find out your Credit Score for free.

Will bad credit loans improve my credit score?
Taking out a loan may have a positive impact on your credit score if you make your payments on time. Making a late payment or missing a payment altogether will likely result in a negative effect on your credit score.
Applying for multiple loans at once or having an excessive number of loans will also likely have a negative impact on your credit score as it can appear that you’re reliant on credit, so it’s important that you carefully review your circumstances before applying for a loan.

Can I apply for bad credit loans?
Bad credit loans are often assessed on more factors than just your credit score*. An imperfect credit score may not necessarily mean that your application is turned down. Each application is examined and considered before a decision is made to lend money. Some lenders may offer very bad credit loans at a high interest rate, so it’s important that you do your research before applying.
