1 Hour Loans: Direct Lenders

Should you apply for a 1 hour loan online, you’ll often get a near instant decision. Whilst some 1 hour loan companies will offer loans without a credit check when you apply, remember to check the interest rates before you sign up. These ‘no credit check loans’ often have a much higher interest rate.

As with any loan, when you are applying for a 1 hour loan, make sure you can afford the repayments before borrowing. If you think you may need third party advice about your financial situation, you can contact companies like Step Change for free.

Here at PiggyBank, we are responsible lenders, and would not pay out a loan to someone who is unemployed, receiving benefits as a primary income, cannot afford the full repayment or who is in a position of financial difficulty. As part of our commitment to responsible lending, we will complete full credit and affordability checks, among numerous other checks to ensure we remain responsible direct lenders. The good news is that all our processes and checks are so fast that we can still offer loans in as little as 1 hour.

Although we pay out our loans quickly once they have been approved, there is a lot going on behind the scenes beforehand. Even if your application is immediately approved, we have still completed numerous checks to make sure you can afford the repayment. We also check that the application is not fraudulent by using industry leading technology to ensure that by paying out the loan we will not be putting you in a position of financial difficulty.

Some applications may be passed through to our manual underwriting team for additional checks: in which case we may request a payslip for example, allowing us to check your employment details. This won’t slow you down though, as this can be sent by email so your application can still be approved the very same day. We will also check your credit file and the figures that you have provided us with regards to your income and expenditure.

If you need any help or have questions about the application process, you can contact us at applications@piggy-bank.co.uk.

Types of Companies That Offer One Hour Loans

High Street Bank Loan

You can only get an hour loan from a high street bank if your bank offers this service and if you have one of their current accounts, as this would make it much easier for them to transfer the money into your bank quickly. Some banks can take up to 3 days to transfer the funds.

Online Bank Loan

You can only get 1 hour loans online from your bank if they offer this service. Again, you’d need to have a current account with them, so that they can transfer the money into this account as speedily as possible.

High Street Loan

This is very rare, but a high street loan company may be able to pay the money out within an hour if you’re able to get to one of their offices in this time to pick up the money.

Payday Loan

Some payday loan companies now have the capabilities to get the funds into your account within 1 hour, but they may charge you for this service. Check with the lender to ensure it's free of charge or if extra charges could be added onto your loan. It’s also important to check to see if you’re applying for a 1 hour loan though a direct lender, or through a broker.

PiggyBank offer payday loans online, and are a direct lender, so we won’t charge you any fees for taking out a loan with us.

Text Loan

Some direct lenders, once you have registered with them, don’t require you to use a desktop and allow you to apply from your mobile. They are often very quick at transferring the money into your account, usually within 1 hour.

Instalment Loan

Another type of quick short term loan is an instalment loan. These are repaid over a few months rather than in one full payment like a payday loan. Instalment loans are usually intended for larger expenses as you can spread the cost.

If approved for an instalment or payday loan, PiggyBank will aim to get your money into your account within 1 hour. If you’ve had an unexpected expense and are looking to take out a short term loan, you can find out more about our eligibility criteria here.

Before you take out a PiggyBank 1 hour loan, you need to ask yourself whether borrowing the money is the right thing for you. If you can cut down on your spending or put off buying something until you’ve saved for it, do that first before calling on Piggybank. If you are borrowing money to make repayments on other loans and debts, you may be in a vicious circle and it might not be the best thing to do and you should seek advice and guidance. Your local Citizens Advice Bureau will be able to offer help if needed.
