Car Loan Tips
Increase Your Payments
Any extra repayments you make in the first few years of your car loan can shorten the life of the loan and reduce the overall amount of interest you pay. If you can’t pay more, try to pay more often such as fortnightly rather than monthly.
Make Lump Sum Payments
If you come into some money, whether it be a tax refund, inheritance, work bonus or you sell something, consider putting this money towards your car loan. Making extra lump sum repayments is a good way to pay down your car loan faster.
Refinance Your Loan
You may be able to negotiate a better interest rate on your car loan with your lender. Alternatively, you can refinance your car loan through a different lender by taking out a new loan that covers the amount you still owe on your current one.
Instead of just paying the recommended payment, round up your payments to the nearest $50 to help repay your car loan faster. If your repayment is $220 a month, by rounding up to $250 you’d be repaying an extra $360 a year.
