Total OPTIOSCORE
42.8/100

Cashfloat offer one of the cheapest representative APRs in the market at 1116%. They don’t charge any fees for arranging the loan or for early repayment, in fact if you do repay your loan earlyyou’ll end up paying less interest in the long run. The only fee that Cashfloat charge is a default fee of £15 if you miss a payment. You’ll also still accrue the daily interest until you settle your payment - up to a maximum of 60 days.

Their website feels confusing – although it is filled with information about their types of loans, responsibility and blog posts, some of the most vital information for customers is missing; their FAQ section is sparse and it’s very difficult to find out basic information such as the minimum criteria. There is also no loan calculator which is usually standard practise for lenders, and applicants can only see the rate and repayments after they have completed the application.

Cashfloat’s OPTIOSCORE places them at the low end of the table, and their simplicity is one of the things that lets them down. They also receive only 6.4 out of 10 on TrustPilot with customers leaving negative comments about their lack of communication.

As with any high-cost short-term product the usual warning applies. If you have any doubt whether you can afford to repay your loan on time and in full, then don’t apply. By missing or being late with repayments, you will not only harm your credit file but could be subject to a number of fees, which can soon make things very expensive.

Overall verdict: One of the most reasonably priced lenders in the high-cost short-term market, however, their confusing website really lets them down. Unlike other lenders that offer a simple and smooth process, you really have to dig to find the information you’re looking for and I imagine this could leave many customers frustrated.

About CashFloat

New customers can borrow up to a maximum of £500, however if you prove to be trustworthy and repay the loan on time, then you’ll be eligible to apply for the full £1,100.

To apply to Cashfloat you can fill out the application on their website and choose whether your repayment date is a certain date or a certain day of the month, e.g. last Friday of every month. You will need to provide details of your incomings and outgoings and employment details in order to assess your affordability and creditworthiness, which then goes towards the loan decision.

If you’re declined by Cashfloat, they will ask you to provide permission for them to pass you through to another lender. This means that if you are declined you should be able to find a lender better suited to your circumstances.
