Debt Consolidation Loans

Debt consolidation could help you manage your finances

Debt Consolidation Loans

Lots of us owe money on more than one credit card or have several different credit agreements or loans in place. It can be tricky keeping track of them all, especially if you’re making repayments on different days during the month and being charged different interest rates. This is where a debt consolidation loan can come in handy, combining your debt into one monthly repayment could help you take control of your finances.

Things to consider

  • Analyse your finances: Make a list of all of your debts including outstanding balances, the interest rates you are currently paying and if there are penalties for repaying the debt early.
  • Create a budget: Make sure you can realistically afford the monthly repayments, create a budget by listing all of your current income and outgoings.
  • Consider your options: If you have savings to reduce your debt it could be cheaper than a loan. Check the interest rates on your savings to see if they are lower than the interest on your debts - remember to keep some savings in reserve for emergencies.
  • Set a limit: Don’t borrow more than you need - adding more to your debt means it will take you longer to pay it off.

Tips

  • Check the rate: To make debt consolidation work you need to roll your debts into one monthly repayment at the lowest rate available to you. Before applying, compare the rates available from different providers and make sure the interest rate is fixed for the term of the loan.
  • Read the small print: Look for any hidden fees or added charges.
  • Be disciplined!: If you take out a debt consolidation loan, remember to cut up your credit cards and cancel agreements. Otherwise you may be tempted to start using your cards again and end up with a bigger debt than you started with.
