Wonga is a payday loan company specialising in short term loans with high interest rates. As with most payday loans, there are no credit checks and customers can receive the funds in as little as an hour. Repayment on a loan with Wonga is usually due within 30 days.

Customers often start experiencing problems when they can’t repay the initial loan at the end of the term and instead take out a further loan. This is called ‘rolling over’ and can easily create a cycle of debt that is very difficult to get out of, due to the very high interest rates. Once behind with their payments, we know that many of our customers receive ongoing phone calls and letters chasing for payment which makes their situation even more stressful.

At Debt Line, we’ve helped thousands of people pay off their payday loans. If you’re struggling to repay such a debt and would like us to deal with Wonga on your behalf, fill in our simple form on the right and we’ll call you back to see if we can help.

Your initial consultation with one of our debt advisors is free of charge and you will only ever pay a fee if you enter into one of our debt solutions. To find out more about our fees, please click here.

    I took out a small loan of £50 for just 10 days and repaid at the agreed time but Wonga keep sending me emails saying I have not repaid my loan. Bank confirms payment and Wonga have taken three payments from my bank. Calling customer services is a complete waste of time got no help whatsoever. In the end I reported my Debit Card lost so that Wonga couldn't rob me again. I wouldn't use them again, they are thieves and liars.

    "Great Service!"

    I think Wonga is a great company. The cash was paid into my bank within 15 minutes of my application been accepted. I have read the reviews from other people...why borrow the cash if you can't afford to pay it back? You're moaning that they add interest on...they state this in their terms and conditions. Pay it back when you set your promise date and you will have no problems. Totally recommended Wonga to people that can pay it back on time!!

    i wasnt even allowed to take a loan out i didn't qualify but yet they've taken £67.70 out of my account for 'admin fees' so other companies can contact me.. i'm fuming with them.. the whole point for going to them is because i'm struggling with money and needed help and now they've taken off me for what reason? totally disgusted and if they wont give my money back i shall be taking legal action!!!!

    Avoid at all cost they like to charge you twice for a loan then add on interest for the fun of it then say they have never recived the money and like to point the finger at everyone else. Avoid at all costs because they do not give a CR*P for anything but the money they like to take from you 2 or three times at one. Total SCAM.

    "absolutely terrible!"

    my mother got a loan off £410.00 knowing she could pay it back the following month with total to repay £522.00. did you know that if wonga dose not take the payment when they promised they could freeze your bank account and any payments you have paid into the account they take seconds later? my mum is now in an informal overdraft of £114.00 they are taking every penny she has and on top of it putting £20 default charges? and are not taking no responsibility what so ever!! they have now taken nearly £600.00 and it keeps goin up. i have phoned and complained and they are exteamely rude to you. after finaly sorting this out. they tried there very best to push her into another loan from them!!! stay well clear!!!!! all the do is rip you off....

    I was with wonga for nearly a year and i never missed a paymeant or messed them about, in fact they made quite a lot of money out of me. All of a sudden they would not approve any lending to me. I was a loyal customer, and nothing changed in my circumstances, they obviously just thought they had got all they could out of me. I did contact them, but just got rubbish back off a pre written sheet. What a very very strange way to treat a customer with a 100% record, shame on you Wonga.
