Who is Drafty?

Drafty is an alternative to payday loans, overdrafts and credit cards, registered in the US and based in Leicester, England. They offer credit lines - a pot of cash that can be reused, based on the concept of signature loans. You can apply even if you have bad credit. If approved, you’ll be given a credit limit of up to £3,000 and can borrow up to that amount. Drafty claims that any money you request will be transferred to your bank account within 90 seconds. Instead of fixed-fee lending, which prevents a debt spiral, Drafty charges interest on any money borrowed, with an annual interest rate of 65.7% and a REP APR of 89.7%. The more you borrow, and the longer you borrow for, the more debt you’ll need to repay, and the more it could affect your credit score.

How much can you borrow with Drafty?

You can borrow a maximum of £3,000 with a Drafty credit line. The amount offered when eligible is a personalised amount up to £3,000, based on various factors including the borrower's credit history. Minimum monthly repayments are calculated on the amount of credit used. This is up to 6% of the money owed, and daily interest of 0.18%. Each month, you have to pay back the minimum monthly fee, and have the option to pay more too - this enables customers to pay back their loans more quickly. While you don’t have to pay to be given the money, you have to pay interest when paying it back. The longer you take to pay it back, the more interest you’ll accrue. With an annual interest rate of 65.7% and a Rep. APR of 89.7%, you could pay around £1601.40 to borrow £1200. While Drafty doesn’t charge late fees, missing a payment will be recorded on your credit file and can negatively affect your credit score.

The representative APR example on this page for Drafty is 89.70% based on a loan of £1,200. This information is accurate as of 8th November 2022. The variable rates which Drafty charges can change depending on the amount you borrow.
