Here at Go Car Credit we specialise in offering bad credit car finance with no guarantor to those who need a loan for their next vehicle.

Because we are specialists in bad credit car finance, our criteria is likely to be different from the direct lenders who may have declined your car loan application as they were looking to add a guarantor to the application.

Many of our customers may have been refused car finance by other lenders due to being on benefits, self-employed, may not have the money to put down a deposit or simply just have a poor credit history so their applications are not considered from the start.

What is a guarantor?

A guarantor is someone who will be liable for paying the rest of the car loan off if you fail to make the monthly repayments.

This is a common option for those with bad credit who need car finance as a guarantor is more likely to get approved if they have a better credit file than the person they are acting as the guarantor for.

Do I need a guarantor to get car finance if I have bad credit?

We do not offer car finance with a guarantor, because this allows us focus on helping those who have bad credit and may not be able to get a loan due to not having anyone to act as a guarantor for them.

We do however offer joint car finance for those who do fall short of our lending criteria. Having a joint applicant on your car finance agreement is different to having a guarantor as you will be both be equally liable for the full repayment of the loan.

Why would I need a joint applicant for my car finance application?

We will only ask for a joint applicant if you do not meet some of our eligibility requirements for us to give you a car finance agreement. Your income may be too low and having a joint applicant means we will take both of your incomes into consideration. Alternatively you could be self-employed but your earnings go into the bank account of your joint partners name.

Your joint applicant must live at the same address as you and will equally share the liability and responsibility of the car loan and making the monthly repayments on time. Having a joint applicant on your car finance agreement does not mean that the loan payments and commitment is split 50/50, you must both make sure the required amount is being paid off on time every month for it not to adversely affect both your credit profiles.
