Welcome to the Finder Personal Loans Customer Satisfaction Awards 2024

The best way to determine the value of a product is by speaking to the people who actually use it – the customers. For our 2024 Customer Satisfaction Awards, we asked customers of the UK’s leading personal loan providers what they thought of their lender to see which came out on top.

The winners

Our winning companies are decided based on their overall satisfaction score (star rating) and recommendation score (how likely customers would be to recommend the lender to a friend). You can read more on our methodology below.

Here are the winners for 2024:

Customer satisfaction scores methodology

We asked loans customers to score their satisfaction with the service they had received from their primary platform, and also whether they would recommend the service to a friend. Our independent survey of 750 personal loan users was carried out in December 2023 – full details of our methodology here.

We have shown both results for the brands listed in the table above, and used these ratings to decide the winners of our awards (where there was a draw on the star ratings score, we used the “would recommend” percentage as a tie-breaker).

Personal loan scores
