Debt Consolidation

Sometimes taking out credit can be a short-term solution when your circumstances change unexpectedly. However, borrowing from different lenders can lead to multiple debts if you struggle with repayments, which can lead to feeling overwhelmed or anxious.

One solution to this situation is a debt consolidation loan, which can help you settle your debts with various lenders and ease the anxiety you encounter with them. If this sounds like something you may need, read on to find out more about our debt consolidation loans, and see if they are right for you.

What is debt consolidation?

Debt consolidation is the process of taking out new credit to pay off existing credit. In other words, taking out a debt consolidation loan to pay off existing loans or debts.

Debt consolidation loans are designed so that you only have one company to pay back, instead of multiple companies which you may have borrowed from. A debt consolidation loan is used to group together all outstanding repayments into one so that they are easier to manage.

For example, a long-term loan used to consolidate debt would mean that you only need to make repayments to Dot Dot Loans. Only having to deal with us means that you have 24/7 access to our secure online portal to help you manage your repayments, as well as our friendly customer service team who are always happy to help.

Can I get a debt consolidation loan with bad credit?

Here at Dot Dot, we offer loans for bad credit and can take into account other factors besides your credit history, which can help get you approved. Please note that everyone’s credit file is different, and it is possible that for those with extremely poor credit, the amount of interest charged on top of your debt consolidation loan may be higher than the standard interest rate.

Is debt consolidation a good idea?

Consolidating debt is not always right for everyone. It is crucial that you carefully review your circumstances if you are considering a debt consolidation loan.

Debt consolidation loans are useful because you are only dealing with one company, where you are only making one regular repayment. For example, with Dot Dot Loans you would repay a long-term loan over your chosen time period between 18 and 48 months, depending on how much you borrow.

Using a debt consolidation loan may also help reduce the amount of interest you pay on borrowing. Grouping together your outstanding payments to different lenders would mean that you only have to make interest payments to one lender, which may cost less than the interest from the lenders you currently have outstanding payments for.

Sometimes borrowing over a long-term period can result in paying back more, but in lower instalments, making the loan more manageable for some. Make sure that you check and compare interest rates properly before using a debt consolidation loan, so that you know it’s the right choice for you.

Who is a debt consolidation loan for?

Debt consolidation loans are for those who wish to pay off multiple debts from different lenders, so that they only need to repay one lender. A debt consolidation loan is used to group together multiple debts.

When is a debt consolidation loan a good idea?

These loan types can help if you are struggling to manage your different debts and would find it easier to just owe repayments to one lender, such as Dot Dot Loans. A debt consolidation loan may also have a lower interest rate than your current outstanding loans.

What if I have limited credit history?

Limited credit history is when you have no evidence of making credit repayments, which can be just as damaging as a low credit score and may even restrict you from taking out a very bad credit loan. This is why we carry out an affordability check before issuing a debt consolidation loan, to make sure that it is the right option for you.

Do debt consolidation loans require a credit check?
