  • Lower monthly payment – the monthly payment for the new loan should be much less than the combined monthly repayments of all existing credit commitments.

If you have a bad credit score and currently have expensive loan repayments, this is very possible.

  • More affordable – the new monthly payment should be comfortably affordable and sustainable for you.

Note, if the debt is over a longer period than the existing loans, whilst the monthly repayments may be less, the total interest repaid could be more in total.

It’s possible, see below 👇


  • Many ‘bad credit loans’ are expensive, such as payday, instalment or doorstep loans, so it likely that these types of loans will not be suitable consolidation loans:
    • Expensive rates typically 365% – 1,575%
    • Small loans typically only up to £2,000 maximum
    • Short loan terms up to 12 months, making monthly repayments fairly high.

  • Guarantor loans can be more suitable
    • Better rates typically 29% – 54.9%
    • Larger loans up to £15,000
    • Longer loan terms up to 5 years

  • Do your homework – once you’ve (1) calculate your total debt (2) calculate your monthly debt costs (3) worked out your budget

To find out is an unsecured or guarantor loan is a viable option for you

  1. Reducing total monthly repayments – when your total monthly loan/credit repayments are becoming too much to manage, and a new loan could reduce your total monthly commitment.
  2. Debt becomes affordable – if the new lower loan repayment makes takes your debt from being unaffordable, to comfortably affordable.
  3. Simplifying your finances – when you need to simplify your finances, where juggling loans, credit cards, and overdrafts are causing stress and missed payments.

When the above reduces your stress and anxiety over your debts, in a sustainable way forward, consolidation can be a good idea.

  1. If you cannot afford the new repayments – even if the new loans monthly repayments are lower than your existing debts, if you cannot comfortably afford it this will not solve your debt problem.
  2. If monthly repayment is not much lower and total interest costs are higher – it’s possible that you could reduce your monthly payments a little bit, but overall, the loan lasts longer than your existing credit commitments, so the total interest payment is much higher.

In these situations, you’ve not made much positive reduction per month but increased your total commitment – not a good idea.
