    And, if your need for cash causes a direct debit to be left unpaid then you’ll get another fee there. It doesn’t take long for these charges to mount up -- some people have gone just a couple of pounds overdrawn and ended up owing their bank over £100 in charges and penalty fees alone.

    Look at it that way and £20 to borrow a bit of money for a few days or weeks doesn’t sound as bad as you might think. So, take a look at what shortloans.co.uk can do for you next time you’re in a fix.
