London is one of the most expensive cities in the world – but it’s still an amazing place to live and work. Because it’s so expensive, Londoners are making ever more use of personal loans to help them overcome temporary cash flow problems caused by unexpected bills. In fact, we Londoners take out more payday loans and short-term loans than our fellow countrymen and women in different regions of the UK.
In this article, LoanTube considers:
- the current personal loan market in the UK
- unsecured loans in London
- how to find the best same day loans in London
There are different types of personal loan available for London and UK citizens. It’s hard to remember a time when there have been so many lenders competing for business. And, whenever there’s competition, it’s also the consumer or the borrower who wins.
LoanTube specialises in brokering unsecured personal loans – we work with a large panel of lenders who don’t require you to put up your home, your car, or anything else as collateral for taking out a loan. Although you should never take out a loan if you’re not 100% sure how you’re going to be able to pay it back. You have the peace of mind knowing that, should the worst happen and should you not be able to repay a loan, your home will not be at risk.
We offer Londoners standard personal loans – you can borrow between £1,000 and £35,000 for a period of up to seven years. We work with lenders who are happy to lend money to borrowers with good credit histories and credit histories which are not perfect.

For borrowers with a poor credit history or who have little information recorded on their credit file, we have another panel of lenders specialising in High Cost Short Term Credit Loans (HCSTC) – payday loans and short-term loans lasting up to twelve months.
For London residents who only need a small amount of cash (£100 to £1,000) for a few days and who can pay a loan back in full in the coming weeks, it may be worth finding out whether a payday loan is right for you.
For Londoners wanting to borrow slightly larger sums (£1,000 to £35,000) and who would like to be able to pay the loan back over a period of up to 7 years, it may be worth finding out about their suitability for your situation.
With HCSTC, there is additional government protection for borrowers, the main protections being:
- you will never be charged more than 80p per day interest for every £100 you borrow
- you will never pay more than £15 on default fees if you miss a payment
- added together, you will never pay more in interest and fees than the original amount of money you borrowed on your loan
London is one of the biggest markets in the UK for HCSTC borrowers so how much do Londoners borrow? The LoanTube team did some research and we found out – see the results below.
Although the figures were incomplete, ThisIsMoney journalist Will Kirkman published figures produced under a Freedom of Information Act to the Financial Conduct Authority about HCSTC borrowing in the UK and London. The following figures were produced for London:
|London district||Number of loans||Average loan||Fees & interest paid||Loan per capita||Total value of loans|
|Kingston upon Thames||32,319||£270.86||£5,689,963||£16.53||£8,753,789|
