It would have been better to take a loan to buy goods or travel
According to financial experts, taking an education and home loan is considered a good loan. This is because it improves your standard of living. As far as buying goods or traveling is concerned, taking a loan for this is not considered good. In these times of crisis, do not take loans which are not necessary at all. Sanket Yadav, the financial planner of Delhi told News18 that if you have to take a loan to roam, then first understand its meaning. It simply means that your financial condition is not good. If you plan to travel, then save through a recurring deposit or SIP (Systematic Investment Plan) for the first one year. Then go around with this money.
Take the risk only if the scheme is cheaper than a personal loan
BankBazaar CEO Adil Shetty told that take full details of loan period, interest rate etc. Then, compare it with a personal loan or credit card. Only take the risk if it’s cheap. It is worth noting that the interest rate on personal loans starts from 8.95 percent and can go up to 20 percent. By the way, the monthly installment of credit card can be repaid sooner than personal loan but the interest rate on it is higher.
