    Credit cards is like a loan but in the form of cards. Credit card, just like loans, allows us to borrow money from the bank for a period of time together with the borrowed money, you will also be need to pay interest. Before accepting the card, make sure that you have read what you are going to sign. The only difference in the credit card companies are the benefits you will get if you avail the card, plus the percentage of interest to the borrowed money.

Lowest rates for new and used car loans in Singapore

DBS charges interest rate of 2.28% for its car loans to individuals that apply online and that is the lowest rate offered for both new and used car loans in Singapore. In my opinion this makes DBS the most affordable option for those that require financing in order to purchase a vehicle. It is also worth noting that DBS is currently offering an even lower rate for the purchase of used cars (1.99% p.a.) in a promotion.
