Expert review

Getting credit with a poor credit score is complicated, but not necessarily impossible.

Trusttwo is a direct lender that specialises in guarantor loans, allowing people whose credit rating is poor or fair to borrow money anyway, provided that they secure the help of a friend or family member that guarantees for them. Guarantors agree to repay the loan themselves if the borrower defaults.

Lenders usually offer a lower interest rate when the guarantor owns a house, but with Trusttwo, the difference between the two is not massive – so you can still get a decent deal even if your guarantor isn’t a homeowner.

In general, guarantor personal loans are more expensive than regular ones. However, the good news is that Trusttwo doesn’t charge any extra fees aside from the interest rate, even if your financial situation improves and you want to make overpayments. You can apply online in a few minutes and manage your loan from your online account.
