3.4 out of 5 stars
I have found these people to be really helpful and fast at paying out the loan. They have never harassed me for payment when late and I am still eligible for a top up.
This company send harrassing emails and texts the day before a payment is due to you and the guarantor letting you know that you are behind with payments, when in actual fact you have already paid the loan. They have done this twice now even though I have evidence of payment. I have now fallen out with the guarantor of my loan, we were friends for years but this has ruined our relationship. Think very carefully before you decide to go with these sharks or indeed any company offering a guarantor loan.

Guarantor loans can be a cost-effective option for those who have had poor credit in the past, but are now on a firmer financial footing. However, make sure you're 100% certain you can meet the repayments before making a commitment. If you're in any doubt at all, don't put the responsibility on to the shoulders of friends or family.
If you're considering becoming a guarantor for a 1plus1 loan, it pays to think carefully. If you do decide that you want to help someone out, there may be cheaper ways to do it including lending the money to them yourself or taking out a loan in joint names.
