If you need to borrow money and you’re thinking of getting a payday loan, you may want to consider other options first. While they are easy to set up, a payday loan can escalate into a problem debt quickly. It can also negatively impact your credit rating if you don’t make your repayments on time.
What is a payday loan?
A payday loan is a type of short-term loan that is designed to cover you until your next payday. You will then repay the full loan amount and interest when you next get paid.
How do payday loans work?
Payday loans work similarly to other types of loans, in the sense that you apply, and the money is paid straight into your bank account. However, payday loans have a reputation for extra charges. Payday lenders usually add on additional interest and, in some cases, roll the loan over meaning that they could lend you even more money to cover the repayment. A lender can only roll your loan over twice though, charging extra interest as it goes along. This is how some people can end up with substantial debts that become unrealistic to repay and the debt becomes unmanageable.
Is a payday loan right for me?
A payday loan is almost definitely not the answer if you need money for:
- Household bills
- Rent or mortgage payments
- Repaying debt from other lenders
