Guarantor loans

Guarantor loans give you the ability to borrow if you haven’t yet got a credit history or you don’t have a good credit score.

What are guarantor loans?

A guarantor loan is a type of loan that requires someone who knows the applicant well enough to guarantee to make any repayments the applicant fails to make. The guarantor must be able to afford to make these payments if required. Having a guarantor is helpful if you do not have a good credit score or have not yet got any credit history. Bamboo offers guarantor loans from £1,000 to £8,000.
