A personal loan can be very helpful in times where you are in need of financial support. You might want to pay for a wedding, take an unplanned vacation, buy a smartphone, or even renovate your home. If paying for such expenses from your pocket isn’t the preferable option, a personal loan can provide the required finances. However, before applying for this loan, it is very important to be ready with the loan’s repayment plan. Being in debt, no matter how small or big the amount, is never an ideal situation for your credit rating. This is why it is advisable to make use of a personal loan EMI calculator.
Take a look at the importance of using this calculator before applying for a personal loan:
1. The calculator displays accurate results
Before these online calculators, the only way to find out about the monthly instalments of a personal loan was through manual calculations. This was not just error-prone but could even get quite time-consuming. Using a personal loan EMI calculator helps in dealing with this problem. Once you provide the information the calculator requires, it will display accurate EMI results, which can be relied upon.
2. It is easier to find a suitable repayment tenure
Choosing a suitable repayment tenure is very important to pay off the loan’s EMIs without any financial difficulties. Now, you can either choose your preferred tenure to repay the loan. Make use of the calculator to check which tenure offers the most suitable EMI results. Also, it is advisable to check how much of a difference a change in the tenure makes to the overall cost of the loan.
3. You are aware of the loan’s monthly instalments
The only way you can be sure of paying off the loan successfully without any defaults is by being aware of the loan’s monthly instalments beforehand. This is exactly what a personal loan EMI calculator helps you out with. It displays the total interest to be paid for the loan as well as the total EMIs (interest + principal amount). This will give you an idea of whether the loan plan is an affordable option or not.
4. The calculator lets you try out different variations
This calculator is freely available online, which means that users can try out different combinations of the values without any restrictions. Of course, personal loan interest rates are set by lenders, but feel free to make changes to the loan amount and repayment tenure until the calculator displays a preferable EMI result.
5. It is very easy to operate and saves time
All you need to do to find out about a personal loan’s monthly instalments is provide the EMI calculator with information regarding the loan’s principal amount, its interest rate, and the repayment tenure. With these details, a personal loan calculator will then display the loan’s EMIs instantly. This makes the entire process of finding out about a personal loan’s EMIs really simple!
