You can't plan for everything. Sometimes something will happen that takes you completely by surprise and leaves you looking for emergency funds.

It can be quick and easy to borrow £1,000 with us. You can apply online and get a decision soon after. The money can be in your account as early as the same day. Read on to find out more about how to get a quick £1,000 personal loan with us.
A short-term £1,000 loan from a direct lender like us is there to help if you need funds immediately. It can be used to cover things like repair costs or out-of-the-blue bills.
According to price comparison site, Finder.com, a third of us have less than £1,500 in savings and 15% of us have no savings at all. If this applies to you, getting a £1,000 loan online from us can be the short-term solution that will bridge the gap in your finances.
It can be used to:
Sometimes a few of these things can happen at once. It can be mid-month; you've paid the bills and you're short on cash. A broken boiler or a replacement fan belt are the last thing you need - and a combination of the two at once can be really unhelpful. But these are emergencies that can't wait. Whatever has happened, a quick £1,000 loan might be an option.
If you need to borrow a quick £1,000 loan, you'll find that there are usually two options available: short-term loans and payday loans. Before you go ahead and take out the loan, it's worth knowing what each of these offers.
Like short-term loans, payday loans lend you a small amount of cash that you need to pay back in full and can be useful if you're in a tight spot with your finances. Both get you access to money quickly. But, unlike short-term loans, the payday option needs to be settled fast - usually when you're next paid. They also come with high interest rates and fees for late payment, so there's a chance that you can find yourself in more debt if you can't keep up.
A short-term loan can be the better option. While this also lets you access cash quickly to cover unexpected costs, you can manage the repayments over time. Plus, if you choose our short-term £1,000 loan, you won't be charged late payment fees.
To give you added peace of mind, all our loans are unsecured. This means we'll never expect you to offer your home or other assets as a form of security. And we don't ask you to find a guarantor, either.

I am an existing customer, how do I apply for another loan?
As an existing customer with an active loan, you may be eligible to take out a new loan with us once you’ve repaid your existing one. This is not a guarantee, however, and how much you may be able to borrow as an existing customer depends on your individual circumstances.

Some of your details will already be pre-populated, please check they’re correct before continuing with your application.
Always consider the cost of further borrowing, whether it is affordable (particularly if your circumstances change), and whether you will be able to maintain other debt repayments.
