About Skyline Direct Loans

Skyline’s history is unclear, with only a past reference as to being a trusted name throughout Northern Ireland for over 60 years. This should link them to the late 1950s. Outside of NI, in recent times this doorstep lender has ventured into central Scotland and they’ve grown impressively as a result. They’ve even managed to emerge as the 3rd most visited firm, only trailing 1) Morses Club and 2) Loans at Home. This is impressive when you consider that England isn’t served. Missing out on a population of 56 million hasn’t however seemingly hindered them. An important further step to growth has been the development of loyalty and trust with 4500+ fans on Facebook and 2000+ Trustpilot reviews.

This Trustpilot rating also hits an excellent 98%. A key feature of the service itself is the ability to choose between having weekly home collections or simple debit card repayments. They’ve done a good job on the site for this adding a login facility. The full loan amount range spans between £150 and £1000 with a £500 restriction on first time borrowing. There are just the 2 repayment choices of 20 and 30 weeks that just surrounds the 6m point of 26 weeks. Opting for the latter 30 week term would be advised for slightly improved value on the daily interest rate. At 0.238% this is matched with Cockle Finance.

Rivals & Similar Lenders Like Skyline Direct

Current traffic performance, the positive reviews and the social media following shows that this lender is doing very well in their targeted Northern Ireland and Scotland locations. There is of course competition looming in each of these. In NI where they have most of their experience some current rivals of note are Firth Finance and Valley Finance. The Scottish focus is new and this is an area where Loans at Home are firmly established. Scotcash are also well known locally. Whether this company could challenge the top 2 would require an extension of coverage across England. For alternatives, it would be worth perhaps seeking out lenders that added a wider range of repayment terms.
