Emergency expenses often require resolving as soon as possible, though when you can’t quite afford the costs, it can make life difficult. However, with a short-term payday loan, you can apply for the money you need without any of the unnecessary delay or hassle.

This could help you resolve your situation and get on with your day, but some loans require paying in full on your following payday, which can create further financial problems.

So to provide flexibility when it comes to paying back your loan, we offer installment loans for a more manageable approach to your money.

What are installment loans?

Designed to be repaid in fixed payments over a certain period of time, the term ‘installment loans’ can apply to a variety of different loans. This can include everything from long-term loans, such as a mortgage, to more short-term options like a personal loan.

What are the benefits of installment loans UK?

As a part of your application when you apply for an installment loan, all of your costs and payment dates should be clearly set out. This provides you with a clear oversight of the loan and can help to make repaying a much more straightforward undertaking.

An installment loan also allows for a more flexible approach to repaying your loan over the more traditional payday loan method. The original intent of a payday loan was that the amount borrowed, as well as any interest, would be repaid in its entirety on your following payday. With installment loans, your repayments are set out over a number of months to give you a more manageable option.

How long can I spread out my installment loan repayments?

The length of time you can agree to repay your installment loan depends entirely on the lender’s limits. Typically for a direct lender loan, it’s a few months to a year, though with a bank, an installment loan such as a mortgage, can be for many years. At Uncle Buck, our installment loans are available for either four or six month periods to provide you with a flexible approach to borrowing.
