Installment loans are one of the most popular ways of borrowing cash. A lot of people head to Idaho Title Loans, Inc. as they are looking to borrow cash to cover emergencies and they feel that this type of loan is the best option for them. But what is an installment loan? What do you need to get approved for one? How can you use the cash? All will be explained.

What Is An Installment Loan?

An installment loan is similar to a bank loan. This means that you borrow an amount of cash (with Idaho Title Loans, Inc. this is up to $1,250), and the repayments are split up into equal installments. This way you always know when and how much you will be paying back. Simply put, you won't be paying the whole lot back in one go.

These loans are often used by those that need to borrow larger sums of cash, but they want predictable repayments to make it easier to work into their budget.

What Is An Installment Loan Used For?

Idaho Title Loans, Inc. will never ask you why you are borrowing from us. However, we do want to point out that installment loans are designed to cover emergency expenses. They are not to pick up frivolous items. We suggest people live by the following three rules when considering whether an installment loan is an option for them:

  • Is the expense necessary? (e.g., medical expenses, home repairs, car repairs)
  • Does it need to be paid right away? (i.e., can it be delayed to your next paycheck?)

If the answer is yes to the first question and no to the second, then an installment loan could be an option for you. Although, you are encouraged to consider other ways of sourcing the cash first, such as selling some of your possessions.

What Do You Need To Get An Installment Loan?
