Other personal loan interest rates available on €7500 loan :
Larger loans will usually have a lower interest rate than smaller ones.
If the interest rate on your loan is variable it could be increased or decreased before your loan is repaid. With a fixed rate loan the repayments will stay the same for the whole term of the loan. If you pay back a loan early you will probably have to pay a penalty.
Always look at the “total cost of credit” when comparing loans that have different repayment terms. A loan with a lower interest rate but a longer repayment length could end up costing you more in the long run.
Check your local Credit Union for loan rates – some of them may have loans at lower rates – but there have been some restrictions on Credit Union loans since mid 2011 .
You don’t usually need to have an existing current or savings account with a bank or building Society to get a personal loan from them. But – with Credit Unions you need to become a member before they will lend to you. Also – most of them usually require you to have a savings record.
If you are on low income and a bank won’t lend you money – you might want to take a look at the details of a Credit Union scheme called the It Makes Sense loan.
