Their loans come with no arrangement fees, no charges for early settlement or over-payments and no hidden fees and the general customer experience seems to be a very positive one.
They will only lend as much as they believe the customer is able to repay in a responsible way, and the APR will vary depending on your financial circumstances and the amount you need to borrow.
