What are £200 loans?
What can I use a £200 loan for?
A £200 loan can be used for any purpose you want, when you receive your money you are entitled to spend it how you wish. Typically they are used for covering small cash flow problems. A cash-flow problem can simply be borrowing a bit of extra money just to see you through until payday.
As these loans are for a smaller amount of money than most, you can use them to cover the costs of things such as:
- Travel and commuting expenses
- Other living costs
£200 loans can also be useful in emergency situations, such as if your car breaks down and needs to be repaired. A £200 loan can help pay for the repair if you’re short on money, which can give you peace of mind.
The limitation of a £200 loan is that it only covers expenses that are below £200. However, there are other loan amounts available and you can borrow up to £5000. So if you’re looking to pay a more expensive cost, you can borrow more.
What type of loan is a £200 loan?
A £200 is an unsecured short-term cash loan. As it is a small loan amount, a £200 loan is typically repaid in less than 12 months. A £200 loan is also small enough to be a payday loan, which allows the borrower to repay the loan by the next payday if they would prefer.
Depending on what you agree with the lender, a £200 loan could be signed with or without a guarantor. A £200 guarantor loan means that a family member or friend will agree to act as a safety net if you can’t afford a monthly repayment. So if you miss a payment, the guarantor will pay the monthly instalment for you. A no guarantor £200 loan means that the borrower is solely responsible for repaying the loan on time, otherwise they could face penalties.

Can I get a £200 cash loan with bad credit?
Yes, even with bad credit you can get a £200 loan. Bad credit isn’t the only thing assessed by us or a lender in an application.
Many applicants worry about their credit rating affecting their ability to take out consumer credit. However, most lenders or other brokers may put less emphasis on a perfect credit score and will instead focus on your income and affordability to access your ability to repay the loan.
Can I get a £200 loan with no credit check?
Even though a £200 loan is a small amount, it still requires a credit check. In fact, all lenders and credit brokers are required to provide a credit check to ensure responsible lending. If you see a lender that is offering no credit check loans, it is not true and you should be cautious.
We have actually put together a guide for no credit check loans, such as what to look out for and alternatives if you’re suffering from bad credit.
If you’re concerned that your credit score may affect your application, the lenders we work with assess several other factors than just your credit score. Your affordability to afford the repayments of the loan is usually more important, so that they can trust that you can actually pay back the loan you’re applying for.
How much will a £200 loan cost
The cost of the loan may vary depending on what interest rate you receive on your loan and if there are any fees applied by the lender. Therefore, make sure to check the rates of interest so that you are able to afford the total amount payable and the monthly repayments.

How does representative APR work?
APR stands for ‘annual percentage rate’. Representative APR is the total cost of borrowing money over a year, which includes the interest and standard fees you will have to pay.
It is ‘representative’ as 51% of applicants will receive the same rate of interest, or lower, that is advertised by the lender. Therefore, it is not guaranteed that customers will receive the same APR that is advertised.
Instead, a customer will likely be offered a personal rate on a loan, which can be lower, higher, or the same as the advertised APR. Personal rates are generally influenced by factors such as credit score, personal finances and how much you want to borrow.
