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 a MBNA Limited loan?

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

A "Good" or "Excellent" credit rating would require a score of 881 or higher, if you're referring to Experian's scale, 420 or higher if you're referring to Equifax's scale and 604 or higher if you're referring to TransUnion's scale.

Do MBNA Limited loans give an instant decision?

Yes, MBNA Limited offers instant decisions online in most cases (occasionally more info may be required).

Can I get a second MBNA Limited loan?

Yes, MBNA Limited 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 Limited 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 two 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 two.

Can I make overpayments on a MBNA Limited loan?

Yes, you can make overpayments without incurring any penalty fee. However MBNA Limited can continue to charge interest for up to two 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 takes usually 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.
