Prospective payday loan applicants should always compare their options carefully prior to submitting any loan application. They should also remember that while payday loans may seem convenient, they can be debt traps to people who are facing financial difficulties, and should not be taken out by anyone who is unsure as to whether or not they can comfortably meet the necessary repayments.

      Hi Paula,

      You have a few options depending on how much you need to borrow. Here is a page that compares different lenders for imperfect credit ratings. This page has a personal loan calculator so you don’t apply for loans out of your budget range.

      Thanks for your question,

      Elizabeth

    I am looking at getting a credit card! My credit score is 750 and I have only one default but paid and that’s it,

      Hi Paula,

      Unfortunately, a low credit score can prevent you from being eligible for a credit card. However you may want to look into getting a personal loan. This page compares the loan options available to pensioners such as yourself and are more flexible with their credit score eligibility;

      Here is another page that will give you some information on your credit rating.

      Thanks,

      Elizabeth

      Hi Luke,

      Thanks for your question.

      Most of these lenders operate online, so you’re able to submit your application at any time. However, check the operating hours of the lender you apply with to see when your application will be processed and loan sent out to you (pending approval).

      Thanks,

      Elizabeth
