Your loan and your overdraft
At the moment, our loans and overdrafts are connected, which means if you’re approved for a loan, you’ll be able to borrow as much as you have left in your entire available overdraft.
So if you’ve got £2000 left to spend out of, say, a £4000 overdraft, you’ll be able to turn anything up to £2000 into a loan, and when you do, we’ll just reduce your overdraft by whatever you borrow – then we’ll bump it back up again when you’ve paid it back.
How to apply for a Starling loan
If we can offer you a loan, we’ll give you a nudge in the app, then to apply, you’ll have to go through a simple process in-app and answer a few questions about your general finances, as well as why you’d like the loan.
