When looking for Audi car finance it is worthwhile going online and getting several quotes with the help of a specialist website. A specialist car finance website will have access to those lenders who specialise in financing Audi cars and so are more likely to get the cheapest rates of interest and best deal on your behalf.
A traditional loan or hire purchase as it is also called can be used for finance for your new or used Audi, this is the simplest of all finance methods and requires you to put down a deposit against the car and then pay monthly repayments over the period of time stated. Once you have made the repayments then the car is yours, hire purchase is also called a secured loan and the car is the security for the money you are borrowing, if you should default on the repayments then the car can be repossessed. An alternative method is to take out a personal loan, however this option would perhaps only be to your advantage if you are buying a second hand car and do not need to borrow a large amount.
If buying a new car or have a very bad credit rating then you could take out a secured loan, however the majority of secured loans will require that you put your home up as security if you are borrowing a large amount and wish to repay it over a longer term. It is essential that you make sure you can afford to repay a loan which is secured on your home as falling behind on the repayments means the roof over your head is at risk.
Another option when it comes to Audi car finance is to go for personal contract purchase. This option asks that you pay a lump sum on the car and then spread the monthly low repayments over a period of time. Once the agreement comes to an end you then have to pay the balance left outstanding on the car. You do have other options, you can choose to trade the car in or give it back and you will owe nothing. A very similar option is credit purchase, however with this option you have no choice but to find the money to pay what is left on the outstanding balance.
An Audi car finance specialist will offer the cheapest rates for all types of loans and a specialist website will be able to gather quotes together so that all you have to do is compare them. However when it comes to comparing for the best deals you have to make sure that you have first read the small print and know about any additional hidden costs which might come with the loan. Along with hidden costs the key facts will highlight the rate of interest, how much interest you will pay and how much in total the loan will cost, in the case of personal contract purchase it will also show how much will be left outstanding.
