How do credit calculators work?
The main advantage of loan simulators is that, in addition to helping us understand the credit that we want to hire, they have a very simple operation and anyone can use them. Thanks to these simple and powerful tools we can quickly know the total cost of a loan, that is, the total amount owed and the interest that will have been paid once the credit has expired, the number of installments that we will have to pay and the amount of each one of the monthly payments. For a useful use to the simulators of the entities we just have to follow these guidelines:
Indicate in the simulator the amount of the loan and also the term to which you want to return. This is the essential step, because without the information of the amount of the credit and the amortization period the calculator will not be able to calculate anything. It can be interesting to do several simulations with the calculator introducing different amounts and, above all, playing with the term, to see the resulting installments and the total amount owed.
The next step for the loan simulator to give us a real result will be to enter the commissions that the credit has (opening and study and other periodic expenses). However, if we have resorted to the simulator of a specific product, for example to the one offered by mini-credit companies, once the term and quantity have been indicated, the calculator will tell us the cost of the credit depending on the conditions of the product.
Check the amount of the quotas and the total price of the product: when we have entered all the data, we will only have to check the result. The simulator will allow us to know the amount of each one of the installments that we have to pay, the total interest that we will have paid when the credit has expired and the total owed.
As a general rule, personal loan simulators indicate what interest rate is applied to the simulated credit and what is its annual equivalent rate, although in some cases they will only show us the interest rate applied (TIN), so they will not be Consider the other expenses that the product includes. In these situations we will have to ask the entity how much it will charge us in commissions and linking costs, since both will significantly influence the final price of the product.
Tips for using a personal loan simulator
With the help of a simulator we can find out what is the maximum amount that we can afford and the term that we can choose based on the amount of the fees. Remember that this tool will allow us to know, on the one hand, how much money we will have to pay in each installment and, on the other, what will be the total capital to be repaid (principal plus interest) according to the selected conditions.
However, if the credit allows us to choose a very long repayment period, we must be careful , since the simulator will indicate that the fees we would have to pay to repay a loan in many years would be lower than we would have to pay if We refund it in less time. This can lead us to the false belief that lengthening the term will make our credit cheaper, because we will pay less every time, but it is just the opposite: if the term is longer, the time during which interest will be generated will be higher so in the end the cost of financing will be higher than if the credit is returned in less time.
The shorter the term of the loan, the cheaper
Using a loan simulator is essential to discern if a credit offer is good or, on the contrary, it is not competitive in comparison with the conditions to which it can aspire at any given time. In addition to looking at the TIN and the APR, the term will be one of the factors that most influences the cost of the credit that we want to hire and is that the shorter the term, the less interest will be generated. Let’s see with an illustrative example the effect that the term has on a loan with a capital of 10,000 euros and an interest of 8%:
|Loan capital||Return period||Interest||Monthly fee||Total owed|
|€ 10,000||12 months||8%||€ 869.88||€ 10,438.61|
|€ 10,000||24 months||8%||€ 452.27||€ 10,854.55|
|€ 10,000||36 months||8%||€ 313.36||€ 11,281.09|
If we shorten the deadline with the aim of reducing the final cost of financing, the amount of monthly fees will increase , so before choosing a very short term we should check that we can really afford it. The ideal would be to determine what is the maximum monthly payment that we can pay and choose a term according to that quota. Thus, we will reduce the term as much as possible without risking our pocket.
When the commissions of a personal loan are paid
If we want to hire a personal loan that has formalization fees (opening and study), the simulators are a great tool to help us calculate if we can deal with your payment without problems. Let’s not forget that the formalization expenses of the credit (study and opening fees) are paid together with the first installment, hence the first payment is considerably more bulky than the rest.
Let’s take an example . If we apply for a loan of 5,000 euros and this has a study commission of 2% and another opening also 2%, we will have to pay formalization costs 200 euros . This amount will have to be paid together with the first installment and all at once, although some entities allow financing the formalization expenses, which means that the amount is distributed among all loan installments. However, financing these expenses involves paying interest on them.
It is for this reason that quota simulators are so important, since, in the case that the loan we want to hire has commissions, they will inform us of the amount of the first installment and we will be able to assess whether we are able to face it or not. . In addition, we can also know if it is possible to finance the commissions and pay them together with the monthly installments instead of in full the first month. Thus, although more interests are generated and the quota is higher, the economic effort at the beginning will not be so marked.
Guide to increase your chances of getting a credit
Depending on the type of credit we want to apply for, the profile we must meet and the requirements that will be required will vary . In general, mini-credits tend to have more lax conditions than the products offered by banks, such as personal loans, but even so, there is always a minimum of conditions that guarantee the entity that we can repay the loan. In addition, according to our profile it will not always be easy to obtain the financing we are looking for . If our employment contract is temporary, we do not have seniority, we are self-employed or we are under 21 years old, it may be harder for us to go to the appropriate entity for us. For this from HelpMyCash.com we have made a free guide where we explain what are our real possibilities of obtaining the financing we seek and how to increase them according to our profile:

Is it mandatory to pay the death insurance to ask for a credit? @dvidmcc – 1 day ago

The hiring of life insurance linked to acceptance is a common practice, especially among banks. Unfortunately, many banks will make this requirement mandatory for the concession. However, they do not usually inform us that we can hire the insurance we want and not the one they offer , so you can compare and find a better offer.
In addition, it is advisable to shuffle other personal loan options , since many of us will be able to hire them without any type of linked product. In this way, you can get rid of a connection that will make us pay for a period even higher than the validity of the loan.
We hope we have helped you, a greeting!

Cofidis is a fairly reliable lender. According to their website, they declare that ‘in order to speed up all the contracting procedures, we recommend that after printing the PDF (your request) you confirm that all the information included is correct and attach the photocopies of the requested documents. Once we receive your request, we will transfer the money 24 hours after the approval of your credit application.
Therefore, as far as we can understand, after sending you the application and the documents, you will receive an affirmative or negative response. If you accept the credit, in less than 24 hours you will receive the money.
