Why Might You Need a £500 Loan?
For those who can’t predict the future, short term loans can be helpful when you have an expense you didn’t plan for and don’t have the funds to cover - especially if there’s still a few days before payday. These expenses could include housing repairs, like a leaking roof, or replacing an essential appliance like a fridge if it breaks.
When these unexpected expenses occur, you may look into getting a bank loan or credit card. Though both are great options, there are a few key things to keep in mind.
Most banks and building societies don’t allow you to borrow small amounts of money, so you may be inclined to borrow more than you need, and consequently, pay more interest than you intended. Some banks may also charge you if you wish to pay off the remaining loan before the loan term ends. Credit cards can also be a good option as long as you choose the right one. If you’ve got bad credit, you may only be eligible for high-interest rate credit cards.
Short term loans with PiggyBank are flexible - you can choose the amount you need to cover your unexpected expense, and the dates you can repay. We offer weekly, fortnightly, four-weekly and monthly instalment loans.
Benefits of a £500 loan
Helps you out of a tricky spot
An instalment loan is a fast source of cash when you're in a tight squeeze and still have to wait a while for payday. If your car breaks down or your washing machine starts to play up, a short term £500 loan can provide the money you need in a few hours.

A great way to boost your credit score is having a history of on-time payment. By taking out an instalment loan with PiggyBank and keeping up with the repayment, you will start to see your credit score improving.

Do PiggyBank Offer £500 Loans?
Yes! We offer loans between £100 and £1000. Loans £400 or more, are generally more difficult to repay all at once, that’s why PiggyBank offer flexible instalment loans that allow you to spread repayments over a longer period.
Can You Apply for a £500 Loan If You Have Bad Credit?
If you have bad credit, taking out a bank loan or a credit card can be difficult. Credit cards offered to those with poor credit often charge significantly more in interest and can be more expensive than taking out a short term loan.
As a responsible lender, authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority we don’t offer ‘no credit check loans’ but we consider each application on an individual basis. We understand that not everyone has a perfect credit history, so we look at your most recent credit history as well as your income and expenditure when making a loan decision.
How Do You Apply?
Simply use the sliders to choose the loan amount and complete our short, online application form. The application process is simple, and if approved, you should expect to receive the funds within an hour.
Before you apply for a loan, please consider whether it’s a good option for you. If you’re able to save the funds for a purchase, it’s better to do that instead. If you need funds for a long term issue due to unemployment, taking out credit may not be the best option. If you’re unable to afford the loan repayments you may fall into further money problems. We also don’t recommend taking out credit to repay existing credit, as you could enter a debt spiral.
