Choose Wonga over a typical fast cash advance

Looking for a convenient cash advance?

Ever feel like you’re short of cash due to an unexpected bill, emergency or opportunity you can’t miss? Sometimes it’s just the way life goes. You go along thinking your finances are in line with your plans for the foreseeable future, and then the foreseeable future changes! Wonga may be able to help. We know life doesn’t always go to plan so we’ve made our service as flexible as possible.

A cash advance is meant to tide you over for a short time for example, until your next payday, which could just be a week or two away. You can apply for a cash advance from lots of different lenders, but they don’t all offer the same deals. Processing fees, daily interest rates and other charges can often apply, so you should always think carefully before committing to any form of credit.

You may be able to obtain a cash advance using your credit card but interest plus some form of fee (e.g. a flat fee or a percentage of the amount withdrawn) may also apply. It’s important that you fully understand what these costs are before you obtain your cash advance otherwise you could end up paying a significant amount more than you wanted to.

Representative example

Amount of credit: £150 for 18 days. Interest: £27.99. Interest rate: 365%pa (fixed).
Transmission fee: £5.50. One total repayment of: £183.49. Representative 5853% APR.
