Am I eligible for a Virgin Money personal loan?

You’ll need to meet the following criteria to be eligible for a Virgin Money loan:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Have a good credit rating
  • Be a UK resident
  • Have a UK bank account
  • Have a credit or debit card

What credit score do I need to get a Virgin Money loan?

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

Yes, Virgin Money offers instant decisions online in most cases. (Occasionally, more information may be required.) Virgin Money can also offer same-day funding of your loan.

Can I get a second Virgin Money loan?

Yes, Virgin Money 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, Virgin Money also allows you to effectively "top up" your loan by closing your current loan and starting a new, larger loan.

How do I apply?

If you've decided that a personal loan from Virgin Money is right for you, you can head over to Virgin Money's website to apply. Completing the secure online application form usually takes about 15 minutes. In most cases Virgin Money 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 the following information as part of your application:

  • Your addresses for the last 3 years
  • The name of your employer, your income, and how long you’ve been working there
  • Your mobile number (for online and phone banking)
  • Information about your monthly spending, existing debts and liabilities
