Car Financing Options Are Varied So Look Online

Apr 2, 2008
The choices and car financing options are varied so the best way to go about choosing one is to go online with a specialist website. A specialist site will offer advice by way of articles, hints and tips along with offering you tools to help you choose the most suitable loan and terms.

Car financing can be taken with the dealership where you buy your car.
However in the majority of cases, this will not be the cheapest deal, it might not even be the right type of loan. The dealer will not actually give you the loan, they use lenders on a regular basis and this is where your loan will come from. Therefore any "special deal" the salesman promises is not coming from him personally. Usually the rates of interest that can be found by allowing a specialist website to perform a search will lead to a cheaper loan and a better deal.

If you are looking to buy a brand new car then your car financing options might have to be geared towards choosing a secured loan. The secure loan will allow you to borrow a larger sum of money than an unsecured and would allow you to spread the cost of borrowing over a longer term. While this can keep the monthly repayments down you would have to compromise as the longer you take the loan the more you pay in interest.

Secured car financing is also one way of borrowing for those who have a poor credit rating and have been turned down when applying for loans. The interest rate on the secured loan will be lower than the unsecured but of course it will also depend on your rating and how much you want to borrow.

If you have an excellent credit rating and are thinking of buying a used car or do not need a large sum of money then an unsecured loan might be better. The unsecured can often come with 0% finance for a period of time and after this the rates go to a standard rate which can be higher than a secured loan. Again by going with a specialist website you are able to compare from some of the top UK lenders to get the best deal and lowest rate of interest possible.

When comparing car financing options be sure to check the APR and make sure that you are comparing like for like. Some lenders will quote weekly APR rates which can seem very low. However when comparing them with yearly APR rates they are not the bargain they first seem.

The key facts should make the APR clear and they will also tell you how much you would be paying out in total for the loan and also the amount of interest that will be incurred. This is also where you can find any additional costs that could be included in the loan. Additional fees could be an early repayment fee. This means that you would have to pay a lump sum of money if you repaid the loan a lot earlier than anticipated.
