Personal loan for a car
There is a cheaper alternative than standard installment purchase. When you opt for a personal loan, you have the advantage of a low interest rate and the option of paying extra without penalty so that you have paid off the loan earlier.
The life of a car is on average about 5 to 6 years. It is therefore wise to take out a loan with the same term as the expected life of 5 to 6 years. Your loan is then repaid, at the same time as your car is (economically) written off.
With a Personal Loan
- You can borrow a fixed amount for the car once
- You borrow the money for a predetermined term and repay a monthly amount
- If you pay a fixed interest from 3.5% on the borrowed money, this amount is included in the monthly installment
- You can always make extra repayments without penalty so that you have paid off the loan earlier

New car on installment
When you want to buy a new car, you are faced with the question: borrow or lease ? When you borrow an amount of money to buy a car, you immediately own the car . This has the advantage that you yourself can influence the term. You can decide at any time to exchange, sell or repair the car.
This is important when you are considering buying a home. When you have a personal loan, you can immediately sell your car and repay your loan debt, without penalty. There is no monthly commitment left. This offers you the opportunity to buy your dream home. This is a lot more complex with a lease contract.

0% interest at car dealers abolished
Since 2016 it is no longer possible to take out a car loan at 0% interest . The Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) has urged this, because the interest rate offer of 0%, which car importers advertised with, created the misguided illusion that you as a customer could make use of a deferred payment option, without additional monthly repayments.
Buy on installment without BKR registration
From a legal point of view, it is not possible to buy on installment without BKR registration. All loans and credits are tested at the BKR. This is not necessarily bad for you. The test may also show that you are a loyal and good payer. If this is the case, you will receive a positive BKR registration, which helps in obtaining a loan.
