Have you checked out the alternatives to a payday loan?

Find out about cheaper, lower risk alternatives and how to tackle money problems.

Using a payday loan to fund your holiday could mean those relaxing days away end up costing more than you bargained for if you can’t repay the loan on time.

Here’s what you can do instead:

  1. Pay your holiday bill with a credit card that is offering 0% interest on new purchases. But do not borrow more than you need and make sure you know how you’ll pay it back before the 0% period ends.

  2. Find out if an authorised overdraft from your bank until you get paid is cheaper. Make sure you repay it by the end of the month. Read our guide: Overdrafts explained

  3. Don’t assume you can’t borrow elsewhere. Even if you’ve got a poor credit rating, there are alternatives to payday loans. To find out more, read our guide: Alternatives to payday loans
