Can you get a personal loan with a credit score of 550?

To answer this question let's have a look at what we mean by a credit score of 550. In the UK, there is no universal credit score. There are three different agencies - Transunion, Experian and Equifax - with 3 different scores.

Transunion: Scale: 0-710 >> Excellent: 628–710, Good: 604–627, Fair: 566–603, Poor: 551–565, Very Poor: 0–550

Experian: Scale: 0-999 >> Excellent: 960-999, Good: 881-960, Fair: 721-880, Poor: 561-720, Very Poor: 0-560

Equifax: Scale: 0-700 >> Excellent: 466-700, Good: 420-465, Fair: 380-419, Poor: 280-379, Very Poor: 0-279

With Transunion and Experian, a 550 rating is "very poor", but with Equifax, a 550 is "excellent". You're probably wondering if you can get a loan with very poor credit. Good news: the answer is YES. There are lenders who specialise in personal bad credit loans.

Can you improve your credit with bad credit personal loans?

If you have poor credit history and you want to improve your credit score, taking loans could be an option. As we explained above, just because you have poor credit, it doesn't mean you can't get loans. If you need money and need to improve your credit rating, bad credit loans could work for you. Lenders report to credit bureaus of your monthly repayments. If you make timely, accurate repayments, it shows you are able to handle financial commitment well. This good feedback from lenders will have a positive impact on your credit report. Of course, if you don't need money, there are better options for you to getting a higher score.

What's the difference between personal loans and loans for bad credit personal?

The only difference between regular personal loans and bad credit loans personal is that the bad loan credit option will have somewhat higher interest rates and a higher acceptance rate. If you are in need of a loan, applying through Loanza can help regardless of your circumstances. We only work with lenders who are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and can be trusted.

What you need to know before signing your loan agreement

Before you commit to a loan agreement, make sure you fully understand your loan terms, such as the loan period, the interest rate offered to you, the fixed amount of your monthly repayments, your deadlines and the total amount you'll need to pay back. Make sure all the information you provided (especially your bank details where the money will be deposited and your contact details) are correct. Check that the lender is trustworthy by checking its credentials on fca.org. Unfortunately, sometimes fraudulent sites copy real, authorised lenders that can be very misleading, but what they can't fake is the domain. However, if you apply through Loanza, you don't need to worry about being scammed, as we will only ever connect you with 100% trustworthy lenders. And, we do this as a free service to you.
