Is a bank the best place to get a car loan?

I want to get a car loan. Is the bank the best place, or are there other places I should consider?

A bank is a great place to start your search for a car loan—but it isn’t the only place to find a good rate.
Shopping around is always your best bet when you’re looking for a car loan, so you should also consider:
  • Credit unions
  • Online lenders
  • Dealerships
All of these lenders offer competitive rates, and they may even have promotional rates that you can take advantage of.
No matter where you get a loan from, make sure to shop around for car insurance rates for your new vehicle, too! Your lender will require full-coverage insurance, so doing some research can save you money.
The Jerry app compares quotes from dozens of providers to ensure you’re getting the best price on the coverage you need. And you won’t have to handle any of the hassles that usually come with shopping around.
