What length of loan term does Creditspring offer?
Creditspring only offers loans over a six-month period. This means that the greater the loan amount, the higher the monthly repayments will be as there is no option to spread a larger loan amount over a longer term.
Can I repay my loan early?
Yes, you can repay your loan in full before the end of the six-month term if you wish to do so.
Will there be any fees if I am late to make a payment?
There are no late fees. However, you will need to notify the Creditspring customer service team five working days before your payment is due if you want to arrange a new repayment date.
If you miss or are late in making either your membership fee payment or your loan repayments, this will be reported to at least one of the credit reference agencies. This will harm your credit score and could make it difficult to borrow in the future.
