Every now and again you may need a little extra help to pay for unexpected bills or to cover emergency costs. If this sounds like you, our personal loans might be the answer.
You can apply online to borrow between £100 and £5,000 from Dot Dot Loans with repayment periods of 3 to 48 months, depending on how much you choose to borrow. There's no complicated application form and you don't even need to leave your own home.
And because we look at more than just your credit score, we also offer unsecured personal loans for bad credit in the UK. Read on to find out how our online personal loans work and whether one could be right for you.
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, so your application will be supported by your financial situation instead. 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 have the money in your bank account the same day. Other lenders might turn you down due to a less-than-perfect credit history, but we can offer personal loans for poor credit in some situations too.
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 more 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. In that case, our personal loans can help you to cover things like:
You can also use our personal loans for bad credit for a range of emergency situations. Whatever your motivation for borrowing money, an online personal loan from Dot Dot Loans might be able to help.
With an unsecured personal loan for bad credit from Dot Dot Loans, you don't need to find a guarantor or offer your home or other valuables as security for your loan.
Our short-term and long-term calculators will show you an illustrative breakdown of the costs for each of our loans. These costs will never increase either as we don't believe in charging extra for late or missed payments.
If you choose to apply for one of our online personal loans for bad credit, you'll get a quick initial decision which won't impact your credit file. We will only carry out a 'hard' credit search, which will leave a mark on your credit file which other lenders can see, if we make you a loan offer and you accept this.
Our short-term personal loans range from £100 to £1000 with fixed repayment terms of between 3 and 9 months. Our long-term personal loans range from £1500 to £5000 spread over 18 to 48 months. The terms available to you will depend on how much you choose to borrow.

We'll also look at your credit history and finances before making our decision. We look at your situation as a whole, so you could still get an unsecured loan for poor credit if we judge that you can afford the repayments.
That depends on whether you have chosen a short-term or long-term personal loan.
The repayment periods on our personal loans for UK residents with poor credit depend on how much you borrow. Our £100 to £1000 loans can be repaid over a 3, 6 or 9-month period, while our loans from £1500 to £5000 are repayable over 18-48 months.

We collect repayments automatically each month on the agreed date by Direct Debit to save you having to contact us to pay. You can keep track of your repayments through the customer portal.
If your circumstances change and you think you may fall behind or miss a payment, please get in touch with us. Our team will walk you through your options and try to come up with an alternative plan.
We will never charge you for late or missed payments, however they could affect your credit score making it harder for you to gain credit in the future. So please contact us as soon as possible.
We never charge any extra fees or charges on our personal instalment loans. Some unsecured loan direct lenders may add charges for missed payments or repaying your loan early, but we don't think it should be that way.
The cost of your online personal loan will be agreed up front and will never increase.
The interest rate on your personal loan from Dot Dot Loans will be fixed upfront and will vary depending on how much you choose to borrow.
Some lenders offer variable interest rates where the interest rate can change each month, making it harder for you to budget for your loan, but we don't.
