Historically, borrowers typically had a couple of options for a personal loan. You could ask a family member, or locate a personal finance company that typically offered high, fixed-rate loans.

Get Your Personal Loan with Lending Club Today! Today, finding a personal loan brings several more options to the table. You can still ask a family member, or get a high-rate loan from a finance company. Alternatively, you can consider using a social lending network. These networks, also called peer-to-peer loans, generally have much lower overhead and as a result can offer much lower interest rates. They're facilitated by professional companies familiar with this type of lending, to simplify things for all parties.

No matter where you borrow money from, before you get your next personal loan you should consider the following:

  • BBB rating. Does the lending company have a solid history of doing good business with its customers?
  • Loan size and rate. How much will the lending company offer? What interest rate do they charge their customers?
  • Loan application process. When applying for your personal loan, can it be completed online? Is the lending process easy and straightforward?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best online personal loan providers available today. We hope this information helps you find the best loan at an affordable rate that meets your needs!

AVANT

Avant's newer history as a personal lender may make them less attractive to some prospective customers. However, their lack of fees for application or prepayment are worth noting, and for borrowers looking for a turnaround time as little as one business day, Avant may be the ideal choice.

LENDING TREE

While LendingTree does not fund loans itself, it does connect borrowers with a wide range of potential lenders and allows customers to negotiate directly with those lenders if they wish. Many of those lenders work with those people who have less-than-perfect credit, making LendingTree a great one-stop shop for researching the best loan for every kind of borrower.
