Interest on personal loan continues to fall in 2020
As mentioned earlier, the interest on a consumer credit has been falling for years. In 2019 the interest rate was set at a rate of 3.9%. This was exceptionally low. Nevertheless, this trend appears to continue in 2020.
The lowering of the interest rate is caused by the continuing competition between different lenders. When one lender cuts its interest, the other banks must follow
The competition between lenders is beneficial for the consumer.

What should you pay attention to?
- Loan form : When you transfer one or more loans, you must take out a new loan form. With us you can only transfer a loan to a personal loan. Unlike with a revolving credit, you cannot withdraw the loan amount again. This way you pay off a fixed amount every month and you know when the loan has been fully repaid.
- Term : Are you transferring a loan to reduce costs? Pay close attention to the duration. A longer term means lower monthly costs, but you do pay a fixed amount of interest for a long time. A shorter term can therefore be more beneficial.
- Interim repayment : Does your new lender offer the option to repay without penalty? The interim repayment ensures that you incur less costs in interest.
