What are personal loans?

Personal loans can be a straightforward way to get the money that you need. You will borrow a set amount of money and repay it, plus interest, in regular instalments over the time frame agreed with your lender. For a short-term personal loan, this could be several months up to one year. With a long-term personal loan, the repayments will usually be spread over a few years.

You generally don't need to secure the loan against anything that you own, your application will be supported by your financial situation. That's why personal loans are often referred to as unsecured or instalment loans.

With a personal loan from Dot Dot Loans, you could apply online in minutes and depending on how much you want to borrow have the money in your bank account the same day.

What can I use a personal loan for?

Whilst money from a mortgage must be used to pay for a house and money from car finance has be used to purchase a car, a personal loan has a huge level of flexibility. They can be used for a variety of purposes.

Perhaps you've been hit with an unexpected bill or several have arrived at once. Research shows the majority of people take out short-term cash loans because of an unexpected increase in expenses or outgoings. In that case, our short-term personal loans can help you to cover things like:

  • Car repairs, services and MOTs.
  • Home maintenance bills, such as repairs to boilers, dishwashers, fridges etc.
  • Sudden costs including insurance premiums or medical bills.

Whereas a long-term personal loan could be used to help pay for more expensive purchases or life events. This could include:

  • Purchasing a more reliable vehicle.
  • Bringing your home improvement plans to life.
  • Paying for the wedding of your dreams.

Whatever your reasons for needing to borrow money, an online personal loan from Dot Dot Loans might be able to help.
