    Nothing much to worry actually, most likely other insurers will buy them over so you don’t need to be panicked much about such an event. But to be on the safe side always go for Top Global Insurer instead of just local renowned insurers.

Loans that allow borrowers to pay as little as half of their regular monthly instalments

UOB does not offer the cheapest car loans in Singapore, due to its higher than average interest rates. However, the bank can be a good source of financing for individuals that are unable to obtain less expensive loans.Additionally, UOB's HP50 car loans give borrowers added financial flexibility. This is because these loans allow borrowers to pay as little as half of their regular monthly instalments for the first 59 months of a 5-year loan. In the final month of this loan, borrowers can choose to either fully repay their loan with one final instalment, trade their current vehicle for a new car or enter a sell and lease back scheme with their dealer.

UOB's debt consolidation plan is an effective yet expensive alternative to other plans

UOB's debt consolidation plan is best viewed as an expensive alternative to other plans because the bank advertises interest rates that are higher than those of its competitors. Borrowers that have not previously used UOB's services are however eligible for slightly better rates but it is unclear what rates these borrowers will receive in due to the vague wording on the UOB's website

This plan also provides you with a capped revolving credit facility, to be used as a payment method for daily expenses.

Lowest debt consolidation plan interest rates in Singapore with effectivly low interest rates

CIMB advertises the lowest debt consolidation plan interest rates in Singapore, with effective interest rates as low as 7%. This is a great rate for some borrowers that are actually able to secure it; however it is difficult to assess the total cost of CIMB's debt consolidation loan compared to a loan from another bank.Additionally, because POSB, DBS and Maybank are offering cashback promotions and HSBC is offering S$100 cashback and waived processing fees, CIMB's lack of promotions and 1% processing fee make it a less appealing source for debt consolidation loans. It also offers loans with shorter durations of up to 8 years than many other DCP lenders in Singapore.

Unlike its competitors, OCBC does not charge a processing fee

OCBC's debt consolidation loans charge slightly higher interest rates compared to those of other lenders in Singapore. For this reason, the bank's product is not the most affordable. On the other hand, individuals who are unable to obtain the most affordable debt consolidation loan offers could consider applying for OCBC's Debt Consolidation Plan as a backup option. Unlike its competitors, OCBC does not charge a processing fee and it does not list rates "from X%", which suggests that its rates are more transparent and accessible. Another drawback of OCBC's debt consolidation loans is that they are only offered for tenures of 3 to 8 years, which is restrictive for individuals that would prefer a longer or shorter term debt consolidation plan.
