Also if you feel you don’t want to spend your savings on the trip, you have options to avail personal loan for traveling, these loans are offered by the well-known NBFCs and Banks in India.

The personal loan is normally of two types; one is the secured loan in which the borrower has to put collateral against his loan.  In a secured loan you have to collateral either a house; fixed deposit or gold etc. the banks usually offer loans very quickly in such scenario.

The lender has a right of seizing your collateral if you are unable to pay off the loan outstanding, even if the remaining outstanding is less than the collateral, and then only the outstanding is taken by the bank and remaining is paid back to the beneficiary. In terms of house and gold, it is first converted into cash and then settled.  The benefit of getting a secured loan is interest rate is lower as compared with the unsecured loan.

In an unsecured loan, there is no collateral involved; the risk to the lender is high. The rate of interest is very high in this situation. The lender has nothing recover the amount if in case you unable to pay, hence they keep a high rate of interest, that led then to recover most of the amount from you as possible.

The interest rate on a personal loan depends on your credit scores. If the tenure of the loan repayment is long similarly the No Tax exemption on a personal loan either.

Normally the documents are the same as when you apply for any personal loan. List mention will only give you an idea what all documents you need to keep in mind in order to get a loan:

  • Complete application Form with on passport size photograph
  • Proof of Identity (PI)(any of the following)
  • Proof of Present Residential Address
  • Proof of age
  • Financial/Income documents required for resident Indian

The bank that keeps your fixed deposit will definitely be able to assist you with this without any trouble.  Personal Loan against fixed deposit comes with a low-interest rate as compare to unsecured personal loans.

Normally lenders charge 16 to 24%, but a loan taken against fixed deposit makes sure that you pay 1% more than the rate of interest payable on the FD.  For example, if the Bank or NBFC pay 8% interest on your deposit, the rate of interest on your loan would be 9% approx.
