Commitment to responsible lending

The team at Red Tree Finance takes responsible lending seriously. We will only recommend weekend loans online if we are confident it can be repaid. We practise responsible, reliable, and trustworthy lending – always.

As responsible lenders, we will carefully consider each customer’s individual circumstances to make the best possible decision. This means you don’t need to worry about committing to a loan you won’t be able to repay.

Frequently Asked Questions

See All

Just like a cash loan, at Red Tree Finance a flexible repayment schedule (that aligns with your paydays) will be set up over 12 months. Direct debits will also be set up, so that payments are automatically debited from your bank account each week, fortnight or month. This means your weekend loan can be easily paid off in small increments.

If you’re applying for a small loan for the upcoming weekend, we recommend applying no later than Friday morning. This means you can receive the funds in your bank account, in time for the weekend.

Securing a weekend loan and repaying it successfully can actually help to improve your credit score. By making your payments on time, you’ll find that your credit history will gradually improve. If you find that it’s hard to manage multiple debts, it might be a good idea to look into getting a debt consolidation loan, so you only need to make one recurring payment.
