Our review of Welendus
London-based Welendus are a fairly new lender but offer a really great service for borrowers. For suitable customers, they can offer an extension of up to 12 months. This may seem like an attractive option but you will have to pay more interest in the long run, so the loan will become more expensive.
On the other hand, if you are able to repay your loan early or make partial payments then you can do this easily on your Welendus account section free of charge. This will mean you pay less for your loan overall. This type of loan is not a long-term solution but does offer a competitive APR so could be a good option if you have good credit and you need money quick.
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 many fees, which can soon make things very expensive.
Overall verdict: Despite their lack of reviews online, Welendus are a good option for anyone with a good credit file who is looking to borrow a small amount. Benefits such as deciding your repayment dates and not charging repayment fees can make Welendus stand out from other lenders. Their APR is fairly cheap but I would still recommend shopping around to find the best option for your needs.
