What is Loans 2 Go?

Loans 2 go (trading name of Loans 2 go limited) is a loans provider offering unsecured loans of £250 to £3,000, from 18 months to 24 months

Loans 2 Go advertise that although they do perform credit checks on potential customers, they do lend to those with a low credit score. They also offer unsecured loans, meaning that customers do not need to offer security, for example a house or car, as a fall-back method of payment. The company lends super quickly, claiming customers can expect money in their account just 15 minutes after their application has been reviewed. These factors could seem to many like the perfect quick cash injection; however the loans company lends it’s fast, easy to obtain loans at what many consider to be a sky-high interest rate.

What are some problems with Loans 2 Go?

Loans 2 Go provide their service of super-fast, easily approved loans at a representative APR of 770%, up to 937.8%. This means if you £550 over 18 months at a flat rate of 180% per annum (fixed) you will be repaying £2,035.08 in total. This large repayment can come as a surprise to many customers, countless of them claiming they were unaware of how much they would end up owing Loan 2 Go, calling it “an insane amount of repayment”. Several customers say they found themselves tied up in 18 month repayment contracts with Loans 2 Go before realising the sky-high rates they were charging, some even claiming that the money arrived in their account after trying to cancel their application for the loan.

Loans 2 Go celebrate their offer of loans to those with lower credit scores, and sometimes this can mean they could be potentially overlooking indicators that the loans they are committing to won’t be able to be repaid by their customer. The company claim to analyse applicants’ credit history to ascertain if they are eligible for a loan, and most importantly if it would be responsible to loan to their clients. Many would argue, however, that the quick turn-around between loan application and the transfer of funds, in conjunction with offering arguably unreasonably high interest rates to those with a history of failed dept repayments, shows the company do not act in an acceptably considerate manner when approving loans for customers.

The Financial Ombudsman Service states that lenders must undertake full due diligence when assessing whether a customer should be offered a personal loan. In cases where Loans 2 Go has not been fully compliant with these lending standards, Redbridge Finance can work with you to work towards clearing dept and levelling the playing field with this high price tag lender.

Can Loans 2 Go negatively affect my credit rating?
