What is difference between a payday and personal loan?
A payday or same day loan is generally a short term loan that is paid out the day you apply and has reduced payment terms. This means that the loan amount is repaid in full within 30 days to 3 months depending on which company is providing the loan. This may mean higher interest rates and charges however does make it easier for you to access a cash loan quickly. Pay day loans can often be applied for and paid out online with no need for paperwork. In most cases, if approved, the money can be paid the same day that you apply. A personal loan is usually a larger loan amount over a longer term, requires more paperwork and takes longer for approval.
What is a secured loan or collateral/asset based loan?
A secured loan is a loan against something you own meaning that you are granted a loan based on the value of the asset that you are loaning against. For example if you have a car or motorbike that is fully paid you can use it as collateral (security) for the loan. Generally your asset will be stored in a secure facility for the duration of the loan term until repaid in full when it will be returned to you. There are no credit checks or proof of employment required to apply for a secure loan and there are no implications if you do not repay your loan as the asset will be sold to recover costs.
What is a bridging loan or a claim advance loan?
If you are waiting to paid after selling a property as the owner or agent or have made a successful claim with the Road Accident Fund then you can apply for a bridging/advance loan. This means that money will be loaned to you on the basis that you will be paid in the future. Therefore, instead of having to wait a few months for money, you will have access to cash if you need it.
What is debt review/debt counselling?
Debt review is a legal process that is designed to help you clear your outstanding debt. It also protects you from losing your assets, reduces your monthly payments and prevents any legal action being taken against you. If you are no longer able to manage your debt effectively and risk losing your house or car then it may be an option to consider.
What is a virtual credit card?
A virtual credit card or virtual MasterCard allows you to shop or pay at websites that accept credit card payments without actually having a credit card.
