How can an instant loan help me?
Most people applying for an instant loan online need immediate access to the money. The nature of payday loans makes them ideal when you need quick access to some extra cash because of an unexpected bill or family emergency. Lengthy phone calls and application forms can add to the stress.
Among the most common reasons people need an instant loan from direct lenders are, an unplanned house repair, such as a boiler breakdown, or a car repair or vet or medical bill. Whatever the reason, whatever your situation, New Horizons can help you access the loan you need quickly.
Can lenders offer an instant decision without damaging my credit file?
When you apply, lenders will perform a soft credit check so we can compare your situation to the lending criteria of many loan companies with just one application. We then provide you with an instant decision about whether you’re eligible for an instant loan from a direct lender. If you’re eligible, we will show you the best deal available for your circumstances.
All this is done without having any damaging effect on your credit score.
Can I get the money paid into my bank account today?
When you use our service, the money is typically paid into your bank account within 15 minutes*. Most applicants receive their funds in less time, but we quote a time of 15 minutes to be on the safe side. This is because some banks are slower than others at processing the transfer to your account.

What can I use an instant loan for?
If you need to apply for a loan quickly, it is possible that you require the money to deal with something urgent. Lenders will always ask you why you need the funds, although they will allow you to borrow for a whole range of reasons. If you are looking to pay off alternative debts, make a large purchase or use the money for a holiday, as long as you meet the requirements for the loan and pass their credit and affordability checks, you should be ok.
A lender will not consider applications that are to be used for business purposes, if you need a business loan, you would need to contact a specialist business finance lender or bank. Gambling is another reason that you cannot borrow money for. Lenders and credit card provider will automatically decline an application if the money was to be used for this purpose.
Am I eligible to apply for an Instant Loan?
To be eligible to apply for an instant loan, you need to be employed. This can be full-time, part-time or self-employed, as long as you have a consistent income and you can display that you can afford the monthly repayments. The amount you need to earn will depend on the amount that you are applying for. You also need to be a UK resident and have a valid bank account and a debit card.
When assessing your application, the lender will use soft search technology, so you can apply without worrying that you have caused any damage to your credit score. Customers with a low credit score can still apply as we work with lenders that specialise in helping customers who may have been turned down elsewhere.
