“There are many ways to pay a loan off early without putting too much stress on your bank account. For example, you can round your monthly payment up to the nearest hundred or make an extra payment every year.

Before picking a plan to pay a loan off early, though, you should talk to your lender to make sure there is no prepayment penalty.

Can I find liability insurance for a rental car that's cheaper than $20 a day?
My credit card covers damage, but I'll still need liability. I don't really want to pay the $20 a day that the rental car company charges. Is there another way to get liability insurance? I don't own a car or have auto insurance.
