  • An Insight into Borrowing Habits in Britain
    opposite It s hard to understand the continued popularity of these cards given the often wildly uncompetitive APRs they tend to offer one must assume that convenience and the short term lure of shopping discounts wins out over financial sense here The same could be said of the 42 who admit to signing up for expensive car dealership finance when opting for low rate personal loans unsecured loans or car loans would have been a far more cost effective choice Some of the most illuminating findings appear to highlight a marked disparity between men and women when it comes to borrowing more than twice the proportion of women are tempted into the regular use of the aforementioned store cards for instance though balancing things out somewhat is the statistic that 21 of men have been tempted into an expensive car showroom deal compared to 15 of women Similarly trends can be mapped according to age groups car finance for instance is apparently more of a temptation for an older generation of car buyer a mere one in fifteen under 25 year olds have opted for it compared to a fifth of over 55s Under 25s are also far less likely to go for personal loans only 11 relative to 40 of 35 44 year olds Overall it s hard to draw any entirely satisfactory conclusions from statistics like these If anything they highlight a degree of inconsistency whilst people are instinctively wary of expensive borrowing in many cases they are nonetheless tempted into ill considered credit options Perhaps the best advice for those looking to borrow money is to have a bit of patience and be prepared to shop around There are certainly good deals out there and in this age of widespread internet access it should be easier than
