Request revolving credit
When you are confronted with a financial problem, borrowing is often the solution. However, you can also be smart and build a kind of safety margin into your life. You do this by taking out a revolving credit with the bank. You then always have access to an amount that you can borrow when necessary. That way you can always handle unexpected things. For example, consider a washing machine that breaks. The money to buy a new one is then always available with certainty when it is needed. You must, however, meet a number of conditions.
The advantage of a revolving credit over a loan is that a credit is always available. You take out a revolving credit once in your life and after that you can use it for the rest of your life. However, this only applies up to the credit maximum. If you have a credit of 10,000 euros and you have withdrawn 9,000 euros, then you only have 1,000 euros room at that time. However, if you release 3,000 euros from that 9,000 euros, you will have 4,000 euros available again. Without having to go to the bank.
Making an application
You only need to apply for a revolving credit once. You can actually do this at any bank in the Netherlands. Often you can even get this started online at home. You can fill in the first questions via the question form, after which you will receive a quote by e-mail. It contains the further conditions. If you agree, you must report this to the bank. This can then ensure that the process of the application is further initiated. You have to go to the bank for the completion. Everything can be made official there.
Compare the options
It is important to compare the options in advance. In the first instance, this concerns the offers that various banks can make in the area of revolving credit. You can also take a look at the differences between revolving loans and personal loans. It may well be that you are better off with a loan. Maybe even with a mini loan. It is therefore wise to do some research into the possibilities. Often you can enter your details after which the different options are put under each other. You can then filter the best choice from this.
Costs and conditions
When you start comparing, you generally do this based on the costs. After all, costs are associated with every loan and every credit. This is for example the interest you pay or the penalty sums if you pay off faster or slower. In addition, it is also important to briefly compare the further conditions. For example, at many banks nowadays, penalty-free accelerated repayment is quite normal, but this is sometimes not the case. It is important that you are aware of these matters beforehand when you close.
