Travelling with a term loan

1. A standard personal loan provides you a fixed loan amount in a lump sum.
2. It can be availed at a fixed or a variable interest rate, and needs to be repaid within a specific tenor.
3. If you have carried out a detailed analysis of every expense that may be incurred during your trip, a personal loan is a very good option.

4. Since your loan amount and tenor is fixed, you can quickly determine your EMI and plan your Makingfinances with ease.
5. Making repayment is easy when it comes to a term loan as your EMI is fixed and includes both the interest and principal component of your loan.

Travelling with a Flexi Personal Loan

1. A Flexi Personal Loan functions more along the lines of a credit card. It offers access to a ‘credit line’ – a maximum loan amount that you can use, over a defined period
2. You can withdraw up to this limit as and when you need money.
3. Like repaying debt on a credit card, a Flexi Personal Loan involves making payments based only on the amount that you borrow against the overall credit line.
4. If you are unsure about your travelling expenses, a Flexi Personal Loan is the best funding option.
5. For example, let us assume that the average daily cost for travelling in Australia is around $189. This means that you will require approximately Rs.3.5 lakh per person for a one-month trip to Australia. However, this is an estimated figure that will vary according to your needs.
6. Therefore, instead of taking a term loan for exactly Rs.3.5 lakh and then having to make adjustments, it is a better idea to opt for a line of credit.
7. This way, you can opt for a higher credit limit, and utilise funds without any worry.
8. Moreover, you only have to pay interest on the amount of funds used, offering you greater flexibility and the freedom to borrow what you need rather than a bigger amount with a bigger EMI.
9. You may pay up to 45% lower EMI when you opt for this option since your EMI comprises only your interest and your interest is applied only on the amount used.
10. Additionally, you will also have the benefit of paying the principal amount of the loan at the very end of your tenor, which provides for better control over finances.

Your final decision will depend on how much planning you’re going to do before applying for a funding option. If you are aware of the exact expenses during your trip, opt for a term loan. Conversely, if you would like to leave a little room for unexpected costs and withdraw as you go, you can pick a personal line of credit. Whatever your choice, make sure your loan provider offers advantages like instant approvals and quick disbursals. A good example is a Travel Loan offered by Bajaj Finserv, which offers the fastest disbursal time when compared to other NBFCs in India.
