Too many car buyers overlook the importance of financing a car properly. In truth, getting the right car loan, at a good interest rate, is the best way to cut car-related costs. Here’s how you go about getting your vehicle financed.

Banks are the most obvious source of getting finance. They offer good rate of interest especially with the cut throat competition amongst the various banks out there. The downside being the time taken to process the paperwork which could try your patience. But that can be fixed if you have some king of acquaintance with a particular bank.

There are also finance companies which are associated with dealers and manufacturers. Their service is usually quicker.

There are various finance schemes available with the most common ones being Zero percent finance and Attractive rate of interests. With Zero percent finance the dealer and finance company bear the interest damage but the dealer discount is removed and the tenure is shorter than the regular schemes.
