Wonga 6 Month Flexi Loan customer reviews.
4.3 out of 5 stars
Their services are quick and easy and they always provide you with the amount you need.
A true great for short term money borrowing. Easy to know how much for how long and the cost of borrowing, pay back early and save on interest? What else could you possibly wish for.
Very difficult to secure a new loan even though previous loan was paid off with no issues.
Vicious cycle Also once charged more than I should have been which made the cycle worse
Extremely recommended, help you in difficult times. Friendly team, explain their rates in every detail. Keep up the good work wonga you've helped me on a few difficult moments!
I have to review one then it is Wonga, out of them all they seem to be the most transparent and easy to get hold of and communicate with if there are problems. I do like the fact there is a bonus for paying early too and some flexibility.
Our review of Wonga 6 Month Flexi Loan
Wonga is a London-based short term lender founded back in 2007 and is now a household name in the UK. The company has a good reputation for effective customer service and YouGov reported their reputation is only getting stronger. Wonga sell themselves on a clear and quick application process - they could pay you within 5 minutes of approval.
Wonga specialises in high cost, short term lending and have three products; the ‘Short Term Loan’, the '6 Month Flexi Loan' and the ‘3 Month Flexi Loan’. This review is for the 6 Month Flexi Loan product which is the longer term option if you are looking for money in a hurry, but want to spread your repayments over a few months. The application process is very transparent and the price of missing a payment or failing to repay the loan before the end date is made clear from the start. You can apply online, but you’ll need a mobile phone and Wonga will ask for your address, bank and employment details as well as permission to run a credit check.
In terms of additional fees Wonga do not charge for early repayment, so by repaying early you could save yourself some interest. However, failure to repay on time will result in a late fee of £15 and a continual charge of 0.8% interest per day on your remaining balance. Rest assured, you will never be charged more than twice the value you borrowed. In line with FCA legislation, if you borrow £100 the most you will need to pay back is £200.
This type of loan is not designed as a long term solution or for sustained borrowing. Be sure before applying that you’re able to pay back in full. Failure to repay your loan on time will affect your credit rating and could leave you in a difficult financial situation.
My verdict: Wonga is one of the market leaders in the high cost short term loan space. Their transparent and easy to use website, easy application process and clear terms make them worth considering if this is the type of product you’re looking for. Just be sure you’ve compared your options and are confident you can afford the repayments before you apply.
