Am I eligible for an MBNA personal loan?

To be eligible for an MBNA personal loan, you’ll need to meet the following criteria:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Be a UK resident
  • Employed or have a regular income
  • Not a full-time student
  • No history of bad credit
  • Have not been declined for credit within the last month

What credit score do I need to get an MBNA loan?

MBNA typically offers loans to applicants with high credit scores. It's important to note that your credit record is just one factor that MBNA considers. However, if you don't have a high credit score, you're very unlikely to get approved for an MBNA loan.

A "Good" or "Excellent" credit rating would require a score of 881 or higher if you're referring to Experian's scale, 531 or higher if you're referring to Equifax's scale and 604 or higher if you're referring to TransUnion's scale.

Do MBNA loans give an instant decision?

Yes, MBNA offers instant decisions online in most cases. (Occasionally, more information may be required.)

Can I get a second MBNA loan?

Yes, MBNA allows you to have more than one loan running at the same time. Each application for credit will be considered on its own merit. Alternatively, MBNA also allows you to effectively "top up" your loan by closing your current loan and starting a new, larger loan. There's no penalty for repaying ahead of time, but bear in mind that any overpayments may be subject to up to 2 months of interest beyond the date on which you overpay. Because of this, it may work out cheaper to run a second loan alongside the first, rather than consolidating the 2.

Can I make overpayments on an MBNA loan?

Yes, you can make overpayments without incurring any penalty fee. However, MBNA can continue to charge interest for up to 2 months on any sums overpaid. So, although making overpayments stands to save you money in interest, you may not save quite as much as you'd imagined.

How do I apply?

If you've decided that a personal loan from MBNA Limited is right for you, you can head over to MBNA Limited's website to apply. Completing the secure online application form usually takes about 15 minutes. In most cases MBNA Limited will give an instant decision. Before you apply, check that you meet the eligibility requirements and have the information and documents you'll need to make the process as straightforward as possible.

You’ll need to provide personal and financial details, including your:

  • Address details for the last five years
  • Current employment details
  • Monthly income and expenses
  • Bank account details

If you’re approved for a loan, you’ll then receive the funds within five business days.
