Looking for Wonga Loans?

Wonga Loans

Wonga are probably the best-known payday loans lender in the UK, but Lending Stream doesn’t just offer a wider range of amounts you can apply for – we believe we offer better service too.

Over the years, Wonga have certainly been high-profile, which may have contributed to them possibly being perceived as controversial at times. Their Premier League Club sponsorship and TV adverts, along with various news stories over the years have meant that, for some, ‘payday loans’ are synonymous with Wonga.

Wonga may be the best known short term lender, but we believe it’s worth taking the time to compare them with other lenders, including Lending Stream.

About Wonga six-month loans

Six month loans are a new idea for Wonga – they’re best-known for their one-month payday loans, but they’ve also offered three month loans (that they call ‘flexi-loans’) for some time now. Their six-month loans work in a similar way to Lending Stream. If you’re approved, you repay the loan over six monthly repayments.

Wonga loans are applied for online. They don’t have any physical presence on the high street. When you apply, you’ll be asked to give your personal details, work details and mobile number.

However, you can only apply for amounts between £200 and £600.

Lending Stream – An alternative to Wonga

Lending Stream offers more flexibility in the amounts you can apply for, even as a new customer. You can apply for any amount between £50 and £800 as a new customer (although as with any application, there’s no guarantee that you’ll be accepted). If you’re a customer that’s used us before, you can apply for up to £1,500 with Lending Stream.

We’re also higher rated on review sites. Just check for yourself! We’re rated 5 Stars on TrustPilot, with a higher overall rating as well.
