When it comes to your finances, it’s important to understand all the facts and figures before filling out any applications for credit, and to be sure you’re making the best choice for you when you apply. So, to help you understand the ins and outs of ‘no guarantor loans’, here’s a handy guide. We look into what no guarantor loans are, who they’re best suited to, how they can help and how Sunny can support you.
As the name suggests, no guarantor loans don’t require a second party or guarantor to be on standby to pay for you in the event you can’t make a payment. This means you can apply on your own for the money you need.
Loans without a guarantor can be a good financial solution if you aren’t in a position to ask somebody to help you if you should fall short of money, whether because they’re unable to help or because you’d prefer not to ask.
Pros and cons of a no guarantor loan
This type of loan often means there is less paperwork than is often associated with a loan where you do need a guarantor. You also don’t have to find someone to guarantee your loan for you, which simplifies and speeds up the application process.
However, it’s a good idea to be aware that interest rates can be higher for no guarantor loans. This is because they tend to be considered riskier for the lender. It also might be more difficult to get your loan approved alone, especially if you have a poor credit history.
At Sunny, loans do not require a guarantor, no matter how much you apply for, so if your application is approved you could receive your money quickly. Although our broker partner’s lenders do not ask for a guarantor, all of our applications are assessed thoroughly and quickly, so we can help ensure your financial security.

Yes, it is possible. Take a look at our bad credit loans guide for more information on obtaining a payday loan with a poor credit history.
Yes, lenders will perform a thorough check credit and affordability assessment and consider your application based on what they find there. Your credit score is based on your financial past and is generally used to predict your future behaviour, so companies can determine how likely you are to be able to pay back any money they lend to you. If your loan applications keep getting rejected, examining your credit history is a good place to start in understanding why.
If your credit score is low, there are a few quick actions you can take that can help improve it. The first fix is to look at your credit score using free tools like Credit Karma, ClearScore or Experian and check that there are no mistakes listed which could be bringing your score down. If you find any potential mistakes, report them to all three of the above agencies, and the companies who filed them, as soon as possible. You can also register on the electoral roll if you are not already and close joint bank accounts, thereby ending financial associations with those who have a poor credit rating. Otherwise, borrowing small amounts and paying these back in full and on time will help to prove you are a responsible borrower.
