Individuals frequently require additional funds to finance their unexpected expenses. Short-term loans can be used to pay bills or cover smaller expenses, but there are times when we need more substantial finance to cover our unplanned big expenses. In such instances, long-term loans can be a realistic option to consider.

Long-term loans are useful in addressing a variety of financial issues as they can be conveniently repaid in smaller EMIs that do not interfere with your monthly finances. Long-term loans often include personal loans, home loans, car loans, and other loans with repayment terms longer than five years.

What is a long-term personal loan?

Long-term personal loans are financing options with a longer repayment tenure. These loans can often be used for any reason including home renovations, higher education, urgent medical care, wedding expenses, etc. Bajaj Finance offers long-term personal loans with flexible payback terms of up to 8 years.

Features and benefits of a long term personal loan

Depending on the lender, long-term personal loans have several benefits. As the name rightly suggests, borrows can make the most of a longer repayment tenure and thereby ensure that the monthly EMI outflow remains in check.

Take a look at some of the key benefits of a long-term personal loan from Bajaj Finance:

  • Flexible tenures
    You can manage your loan easily as you have between 6 months and 96 months to repay it. You can also use a personal loan EMI calculator to quickly compute your monthly EMIs and know the monthly instalment outflow before applying.

  • 3 unique variants
    You may select from our 3 unique variants of personal loans including Term Loan, Flexi Term Loan, and Flexi Hybrid Loan options. A Term Loan is a regular personal loan where the sum borrowed is repaid in the form of fixed EMIs over pre-decided tenure. The Flexi Term Loan works pretty much like the Term Loan but customers get the added benefit of borrowing from a pre-sanctioned limit and prepaying as per their convenience at no additional charge. With a Flexi Hybrid Loan, borrowers get all the benefits of the Flexi Term Loan and additionally they can defer the principal repayment for a part of the overall tenure to reduce the initial EMIs.

  • Funds of up to Rs. 40 lakh
    Loans ranging from Rs. 20,000 to Rs. 40 lakh can help you cover large and minor expenses.

  • No guarantor or collateral required
    It is not necessary to provide collateral, such as gold jewellery or property documents, or to have a guarantor while applying for a personal loan.

  • Money in your account in 24 hours*
    Your bank account will be credited with the loan amount within 24 hours* of the approval.

  • No hidden charges
    Our personal loan interest rates are detailed on website as well as in our loan documents. Please spend some time reading through these thoroughly before submitting your application.
