According to the ABC Financing Barometer, many major purchases were made in the past quarter for larger holiday trips and consumer electronics.

In addition, 17% of respondents expect to take out a loan for a car, caravan, motorcycle or boat. For these large expenditures, insufficient savings are available for many. A personal loan can then offer a solution.

It is also possible to merge your existing loan (s) or to transfer them for a lower interest rate. The term, the interest and the monthly amount are fixed for the entire term of the loan.
