Personal loans for cars
Looking to buy a car? We know it’s a huge investment. With the average price of a brand-new car increasingly on the rise, you might need a helping hand.
Whether you’re buying your son or daughter their first car, up-sizing to welcome new family members or treating yourself to your dream model, M&S Bank believes that buying a new car should be an exciting experience. Taking out a personal loan to purchase a car that suits your needs can be a great option as it allows you to spread the cost of the purchase over a period that suits you and your budget.
Why choose a personal loan for your new car?
There are many ways you can cover the cost of a new car. Many people choose car finance through their car dealership but this could potentially lead to high interest rates, and it means you won’t own the vehicle until your repayments end. This can make re-selling difficult, and you may end up owing more than it’s worth.
Choosing a loan for a car means you can buy your new car outright, so you can guarantee that the price your retailer quotes is the price you’ll pay, and if you choose to sell your car in the future, you can do so with no worries.
You could also set aside some of your loan to get your vehicle ready for the road – helping towards the cost of car insurance, tax and more.
