How to get the lowest interest rate on a personal loan?

To get the lowest interest rate on a personal loan, it is important to have a high credit score. Applicants with a credit score over 750 are more likely to be offered low interest rates. It is also important to avoid missing loan or credit card payments, as your repayment history is taken into account by loan providers.

Keeping an eye out for special offers during festive occasions can also help in getting a lower interest rate. Comparing interest rates offered by different banks and financial institutions is essential to find the best rate. Additionally, negotiating with the lender, especially if you have a good relationship or are an existing customer, can help in obtaining the lowest interest rate on a personal loan.
