How do you pay off a car loan faster?

I’m tired of being bogged down by my car payments, and I really just want to be done with this debt. How do I pay off my car loan faster?

Great question—loan payments can definitely be frustrating, especially if you have a high interest rate. Here are some easy ways to pay off your car loan more quickly:
  • Pay half your monthly payment every two weeks.
  • Instead of paying the recommended amount, round up to the nearest $10, $25, $50, etc.
  • Plan for and make one large extra payment each year
  • Never skip payments
  • Refinance your loan
Although the above tricks may seem simple, doing something like paying half your monthly bill every two weeks can save you a lot of time and money. Instead of 12 full payments, you’d be making 13, which adds up over the course of years-long plans.
Another way to save money with regards to your car is by finding the best possible insurance rate.
