Instant loans

Sometimes, unexpected bills can arise, even catching the most careful budgeters off guard. This may leave you feeling stuck trying to find a way to cover an expense which you couldn’t predict.

Here at Morses Club, our no-nonsense approach to getting the money you may need could help. Our small loans come in a range of amounts. If loans are approved, we can arrange repayment instalments to suit you, determined by the amount you borrow.

In this guide, we’ve broken down everything you need to know about loans from Morses club, and also plenty of information about how instant loans work.

What is an instant loan?

Instant loans in the UK usually come in the form of a payday loan or a short-term loan. They usually offer a straightforward way of receiving credit, subject to affordability checks.

You won’t necessarily receive instant payday loans or short-term loans immediately, but they can arrive quickly if you pass your affordability assessment.

Instant loans can be an option should you incur an unexpected expense which needs to be dealt with sooner rather than later. However, you should carefully review your circumstances first.

How fast are instant loans?

UK instant loans usually come with a clear application process. If you decide to take out an instant loan, you will have to provide details such as a valid home address and contact information.

Another part of the application process is affordability checks. You must pass these to receive an instant loan, as it reassures both you and the lender that the loan will be manageable. Part of these checks involves looking at your credit file.

Can I get an instant loan with bad credit?

Yes you can. However, as each firm undertake their own assessment of your creditworthiness this can vary between firms.

Instant loans information hub

Instant loans are designed for short-term problems, to help you deal with unexpected expenses should they arise. Our aim is to help offer you peace of mind, and we try to do this as quickly as we can. Below we’ve answered some common questions around instant loans.

When should I consider applying for an instant loan?

There could be many situations where you may feel that your funds are spread a little too thin to cover big, necessary expenses. Unexpected costs can also arise, such as urgent repairs, which you usually wouldn’t have budgeted for. This can cause high levels of financial burden, or the feeling of not knowing what solutions are out there.

Other common reasons for taking out an instant loan are unexpected events such as vehicle breakdowns and problems with your white goods. Sometimes, instant loans can relieve the burden quickly and help you get back on track with your finances.

Here at Morses Club, we aim to provide a service to suit your financial needs, but our loans may not be right for everyone. It is important to carefully review your situation before you take out any loan.

Why do you use credit checks?

As a responsible lender, Morses Club are required to assess how likely you are to pay back what you may need to borrow.

For every application we receive, we carry out a credit and affordability check to make sure that the applicant is able to manage their repayments. Most lenders who offer instant loans online will conduct similar checks. It is possible, but not recommended, to find lenders who do not carry out these checks in the same way.

It is very important to us that our customers can afford their repayments, as we want you to have the best experience possible, with very little stress. Here at Morses Club, we like to think of ourselves as a lifeline to those experiencing an emergency finance situation, offering a helping hand on a short-term basis.

We understand that financial burdens can be upsetting and that you may want to resolve them urgently but being able to afford the loan repayments is the most important thing. This avoids more upset in the long term.

Does my credit score affect anything?

When applying for UK instant loans, your credit score may be taken into account when a lender assesses your loan application.

If you have a bad or non-existent credit score, this may affect your ability to get credit, as well as the best rate on an instant loan. In this scenario, you can still secure a loan, but it may come with a higher interest rate than you originally hoped for.

Can I get an instant loan with bad credit?

It is possible to get instant loans with bad credit, but the interest rate may be higher. For more information on how this works, look at our guide to bad credit loans. It also provides handy tips on how to take simple steps to improve your credit score.

What should instant loans not be used for?

Instant loans are for short-term problems, to help you deal with unexpected bills and expenses when they arise. They are not intended for longer running financial issues.

If you are struggling with debt or money problems, we recommend you seek free and impartial advice. You can get this from Citizens Advice and StepChange who have experts dedicated to providing support and guidance around your circumstances.
