How Much Can I Borrow With a Payday Loan?

You may be considering a payday loan, but if you have not taken out one before then you may have quite a few questions about it. There are lots of things which you might not know about it and it is a really good idea to get all of your questions answered before you take out the loan. There are lots of different things that you might want to know and one of them is how much you will be able to borrow. This is not necessarily an easy question to answer.

Typical Amounts

Usually you will find that a payday lender will allow you to borrow up to £1,000. However, this will vary between different lenders. They tend to start at £100 for the lowest value loan, but this may also depend on the lender. It will vary a bit and if you find a lender that you can repay in instalments (often referred to as instalment loans) you may find that you are more likely to be able to borrow larger amounts of money.

Specific Amounts

You will find though, that lenders may not be willing to lend large amounts to everyone. They do not do a credit check which means that they will need to build up trust with you in a different way. They will often only agree to lend you smaller amount of money to start with. Then, if you successfully repay the loan when required, they will lend you larger amounts. This means that it can be tricky to be able to borrow a large sum from a lender that you have not used before. However, this will vary between lenders, so if you do need a larger sun of money then you may need to just contact several and see whether they will be willing to lend you the money or not.

What Should Your Borrow?

It is wise to also think about how much you should be borrowing. It can often be tempting to just borrow as much as we can because we will be able to use the money for the specific thing we need it for and then have some extra money to treat ourselves with. However, this is not a sensible idea. We need to think hard about the cost of borrowing the money and the fact that it will cost more if we borrow more. We also need to think about the fact that we will need to repay the money. We need to find out when we need to repay it and how much we need to repay and calculate whether we will be able to manage this. With a payday loan, we will need to repay the money on the next day we get paid. You may feel that this will be fine because you will be paid on that day so the money will be there. However, it is important to check this carefully because you may find that you have other things that need to be paid for on that day as well and these will take up the money you need to repay the loan or vice versa. You will also have other things that you will need to pay for such as food during the month and so you will need to make sure that you have enough money left for this as well. Therefore, it is a good idea to actually write out how much money you will need and then you will be able to work out whether you will have enough left after repaying the payday loan and your other bills.

Should I get a Payday Loan?

There are many payday lenders available and you may have seen them advertised, heard about them from others or even tried one out yourself. However, you may wonder whether getting out a payday loan is the right idea for you. There are lots of pros and cons of getting them and whether they are right will depend on you. There are a few main things that you should be considering when you are thinking about whether to get one.

Is the Cost Worth it?

It is always worth finding out how much a loan is going to cost you and thinking about whether it is worth it. Often, we will buy things without considering the cost and then we have no way of knowing whether we are getting good value for money or not. This means that we are just buying all sorts of things without really considering whether it brings worth to us and how much. So, with this loan it is wise to find out the cost and thinking about this. You should be able to find the cost of the loan on the lender’s website. They will often have a calculator where you can put in details of what you want to borrow and how long for and this will allow you to be able to work out how much the loan will cost you. You will find that this cost will vary between lenders and so comparing them is a good idea too as you may feel that one is too expensive but that there are others that you are happy to pay for.

Can I Afford to Repay it?

Next it is important to make sure that you will be able to repay the loan. With a payday loan you will normally need to repay the full balance of the loan in full on the next day that you are paid. This means that you need to be sure that you will have the money available to do this. You might just assume that it will be okay as you have been paid so you will have the money, but it is wise to check. This is because we often have a lot of payments leaving our account on the day that we are paid and we want to make sure that we have enough to cover everything. If there is not the money available then you will be charged more and you do not want that to happen. You also want to make sure that once you have paid for this and paid for your other bills, that there will still be enough money left to cover things you also need to buy such as food. Look back at some bank statements for details so that you can check this. It is important to do this as if you guess, you may find that you do not get it correct and that you end up borrowing money when you cannot afford to repay it.

Is it the Best Loan for me?

It is also a good idea to think about whether this is the right loan type for you. There are lots of different loans that we can all choose from and it is a really good idea to understand how they are work, what and who they are for and how much they cost. This will allow you to make a good choice when it comes to deciding which loan to pick. You will find that because they differ you will not always need the same loan each time you borrow and the costs and things that that will change over time and more lenders will appear and different loan types will also appear on the market as well.
