The car financing is a redeemable loan allowing you to borrow up to EUR 100,000. With this type of credit, you can easily finance the entire purchase of the new or used car of your dreams.
Why choose a car loan?
The car loan is a credit that has been created specifically to help individuals finance the purchase of their vehicle. It therefore has benefits designed for car buyers. For example, the car loan includes a guarantee in the event of non-delivery of the vehicle or cancellation of the sale, two cases that we do not think about, but which nevertheless can occur.
Interest rates are also adapted to allow the borrower to benefit from affordable rates while reducing the risk for the lender.
The car loan is therefore particularly suitable for the purchase of your next vehicle, be it a car, a mobile home or a van.
Note that the car loan does not distinguish between diesel, gasoline, LPG or hybrid cars. Similarly, the size and model of the vehicle are not part of the interest rate factors.
Which vehicles can be financed with a car loan?
The car loan can be used to finance various types of motor vehicles. Among them are:
- The trucks
- The vans
- The vans
- Mobile homes
- Electric bicycles
Most of the time, as the name suggests, the car loan will simply involve the purchase of a car. Whether diesel, hybrid or environmentally friendly, whether it’s a family car or utility car, all cars are eligible for auto loan financing.
Can I benefit if I want a car loan to finance the purchase of an environmentally friendly vehicle?
Since 2014, you can no longer benefit from tax reductions for the purchase of an environmentally friendly vehicle (see the SPF finance website for more information on this subject).
As a reminder, green cars are vehicles that emit less than 160 g of CO2 (diesel) and less than 145 g of CO2 (gasoline).
So far, unfortunately, there are no more financial benefits to buying an environmentally friendly car.
Personal loan or car loan for the purchase of my vehicle?
You may be wondering what makes the car loan more advantageous than the personal loan in the case of buying a new vehicle.
It is true that it is also possible to finance your vehicle with the personal loan. This formula is a little more flexible since it does not require to provide supporting documents for the purchase of the car.
However, it also has limitations: interest rates are usually higher with a personal loan. In addition, as a borrower, you are less protected than with the dedicated car loan. Indeed, if the sale is canceled or the vehicle is not delivered to you, you will still have to continue to repay your personal loan.
With the car loan , you are fully covered: if you do not receive your car or the seller cancels the sale, your car loan is canceled directly.
What are the different financing possibilities for a car?
It is possible to finance your car in different ways.
- Your own funds: if you have enough money left or your car is not too expensive (we think in particular opportunities), you can finance your car yourself with your savings. However, except for some special cases, this is not an option for most people.
- A personal loan : the personal loan allows you to borrow an amount for personal purposes that must not be justified. This means that you can use it to buy your car. This type of credit has the advantage of being flexible because no supporting document is requested by the organization that grants you the credit.
- A car loan: the car loan is the best kind of existing auto financing. And for good reason, it concerns exclusively motor vehicles (cars, but also trucks, vans, mobile homes …) It has many advantages, including the interest rate, but also the guarantee it includes. This guarantee ensures the cancellation of the credit in case the car is not delivered to you or the sales contract is broken.
How to choose the right kind of auto financing?
How do you know which of these financing options for your car will suit you best?
It all depends on the aspects you want to focus on. If you wish to be more free in the purchase of your car, the personal loan will be recommended. This type of loan does not require the provision of proof, so you can have the money as you see fit.
The car loan , however, will be advisable in the majority of cases. If you prefer to have a guarantee in case of non-delivery of the car and benefit from advantageous rates (the rates of the personal loan are higher since this type of loan involves a greater risk for the lender), turn to the car loan for the financing of your car.
Finally, if you have enough equity to buy your car, that does not mean that you have to fund it entirely by yourself. This reserve can be useful in case of incident or unforeseen, so do not separate too quickly. Better to mix solutions and take out a car loan for a higher or lower part of the amount.
Do I need insurance in addition to my auto financing?
Insurance is not mandatory in the case of financing a car. However, it can be very useful, especially to cover cases that are not included in the auto loan guarantee. It is up to you to weigh the pros and cons and negotiate a possible contract with an insurance company. In any case, the insurance of the vehicle is not part of the services offered by Credilend, you will not be asked for insurance as part of your application for car credit.
