It has become easy to borrow money and fortunately it has become similarly cheap. However, there can be a lot of money to save from loans to quick loans, so it is important to look around a bit.
Free loans are the cheapest
Of course, it goes without saying that free is cheapest. If you only need a small amount like USD 1,000 or 2,000 and you do not have a long loan history behind you, you can most likely get a free loan.
Many loan providers offer new customers free loans for a shorter period of 30 or 60 days. However, be aware that if you want a longer term on the loan, interest will be added after the free period.
Compare loans via APR
Different loans have different expenses. Most loans have interest rates, but many loans also have fees called something different. When comparing loans, it is important to compare total expenses and not just look at interest or fees.
In Denmark, it is a legal requirement that all loans must have stated the total annual costs as a percentage (APR). It makes it easy and quick to compare similar loans from different loan providers and find the cheapest one. The cheapest loan is the loan with the lowest APR.
Adhere to the loan terms
One thing is to find a cheap loan in the first place; Another thing is that the loan can get really expensive if you breach the payment agreement and the loan terms.
The loan providers have the right to change the conditions if you breach the original agreement. This may mean that if you pay too late or omit to pay, your loan may be subject to high interest rates or fees, making the loan as a whole more expensive than initially assumed.
If you continue to fail to pay, you risk being registered with RKI and then it can become very difficult to borrow money going forward.
