The festive season is almost here, and we all are now eyeing the lucrative offers most brands are coming up with, especially the car brands! However, a car is a huge investment, and buying one is not as easy as it sounds. So, how do you finance a new car? Should you skimp and save for years, curtailing your expenses to the bare minimum? 

Fortunately, that’s not required. You can reach out to financial institutions that can help you finance a new car. Taking a car loan means you don’t have to pay the full amount for the car upfront; you can do so in monthly instalments, along with interest.

Here’s a list of the best car loan offers you must check out this festive season.

Bank of Baroda

Bank of Baroda is a nationalised banking and financial services company under the ownership of the Ministry of Finance. It has been around for more than a century and has earned the trust of people.

Today, getting a car loan with the Bank of Baroda is quite advantageous. The approval process involves just three steps and can be wrapped up in 30 minutes. You can take a higher loan amount and still be assured of zero foreclosure charges. Even better, once your loan is approved, you can make part payments whenever you wish to. 

If you do not have an account with the Bank of Baroda, you can open one for obtaining a car loan. The car loan interest rate starts from 7.25% p.a. This festive season, however, you can benefit from a car loan at 7.00%* p.a. The rate could vary depending on your CIBIL (credit) score.
