SafetyNet Credit offer a product quite different to others in the high-cost short-term market. Rather than providing a standard short-term loan they provide a flexible and running account credit facility. When you apply to SafetyNet credit and are successful, you can choose to either transfer the balance to your account, or alternatively, choose the function that tops up your account to stop it from falling below a certain point and help to stop those pesky overdraft fees. Interest is charged on a daily rate of 0.8% on whatever you are borrowing and is for a maximum of 40 days.

Customers with less than perfect credit history are still able to apply, although you will be credit checked during the application process. To ensure that you can keep on top of the loan, RateSetter will only lend you the amount that they think you can afford to repay so you may not get the full £500 if there are blemishes in your past. You also have the option to set up automatic re-payments when money goes into your account and so it makes it easy to manage.

SafetyNet Credit has brilliant reviews across the web. At the time of writing this SafetyNet Credit score 9.2 on Trustpilot based on 3190 reviews. Users comment on their reliability, great service and ease of use. The majority of these reviews are from bad credit borrowers which is promising considering the dire reputation of high cost short-term loans.

The general warnings still apply with SafetyNet Credit as they still provide a high-cost short-term product. If you have any doubt to whether you can meet the repayments, then do not apply as you’ll risk getting yourself into serious financial problems.

Overall verdict: If you have bad credit and are looking for short term finance SafetyNet Credit are definitely worth considering. They are at the cheaper end of the market, enable flexibility towards borrowing and are supported with strong consumer sentiment across the web. Saying this, SafetyNet Credit still provide a product that comes with a warning so be sure before applying.

- jo, at 4:45pm 02/08/17
Answer:
Hi Jo, Thank you for contacting us. When you click through to view your balance on your dashboard, it will show available balance, current balance and overdraft limit. If there is a difference between the available balance and current balance, this is usually due to a pending borrowed amount waiting to be cleared. Please note it is bank specific, but most banks will include any pending charges in the available balance displayed. If you would like to discuss this further please call us on 0800 180 8400.

About SafetyNet Credit

SafetyNet Credit, a trading name of Indigo Michael Ltd, offer short term finance up to £500 at a representative APR of 68.7%. They don’t have specific loan terms or monthly repayments as this credit line style of finance is flexible and takes into account how much you can afford to repay. These payments can be made manually via the online management tool at any time, or automatically as money comes into your account. SafetyNet will not automatically withdraw funds if it looks like it will affect another credit instalment, or would take you beyond your overdraft limit.

The finance works by linking up with your bank account and once your balance falls below a predetermined amount, SafetyNet Credit will automatically lend you money in order to prevent the borrower from dipping into their unauthorized overdraft and incurring penalty fees.

In order to apply with SafetyNet Credit you must have a UK bank account with online banking facilities in your name. You are not required to have a good credit history, however as part of your application with SafetyNet Credit you will be subject to credit checks, this will determine the level of credit they will offer you.
