Amigo Loans (Amigoloans.co.uk) is an award winning online provider of loans, specialising in lending to those with a bad credit record. Instead of rejecting customers straight off based on a credit check, Amigo Loans offers borrowers the chance to access a loan by using a guarantor. A guarantor underwrites the loan, providing support if the customer fails to meet the repayments for any reason.

Amigo provides guarantor loans of anywhere between £500 and £5,000 that can be repaid over a term of 12 to 60 months, depending on the amount borrowed. On the lower £500 loans, repayments must be made in full within 12 months. The guarantor loan comes with no application fees or hidden charges and works through Amigo Loans directly, so you’ll be dealing with your lender every step of the way, rather than going through a broker.

Amigo Loans accepts customers who have defaulted on loans in the past and who have a poor credit rating by having a guarantor sign onto the loan with the borrower. The guarantor should be someone you trust and who trusts you. They must be between the ages of 18 and 75, be a homeowner in the UK, have a good credit history and must definitely be able to meet the loan repayments if you cannot keep up with them. The loans from Amigo are unsecured, so the guarantor does not have to place any collateral, like their home, against the loan.

The loan should have no impact on the guarantor’s credit rating, unless for some reason they were unable to make payments when the borrower has failed to do so. The credit check conducted by Amigo Loans on the guarantor’s record is a quotation search, so it will not appear on the guarantor’s credit file.

To apply for a guarantor loan from Amigo Loans, you and your guarantor can fill out the application form online. The lender will then get back to you by phone, and the money should be in your guarantor’s account within 48 hours.

Rude staff who use any tactics they can to get a payment,they bombard you with texts ,calls and emails.
They are not sympathetic at all and constant threats are scary.
Do not use at all,try a credit union or another way to get cash.
They play on people being desperate for cash sadly and get away with being nasty .
I have not had any good experience with them when calling or writing to them and want to warn others.
I was also given false information as to what they can do legally,so took advice from a charity regarding this.
Please do not make the mistake i did people.

My Amigo loans was made possible by a very good friend offering to act as guarantor for me. If I hadn't been lucky enough to find someone willing to do this for me it would have meant a bad credit loan for me which would have worked out so much more expensive for me. If you are taking out a guarantor loan you shouldn't lose sight of the fact that your guarantor is doing you a massive favour and probably saving you hundreds of pounds overall. So maybe a nice thank you gift would be in order. That's what I am planning for mine.
