Q: My motorcycle loan is killing my budget, and I’d love to refinance to ensure I can keep my ride. What are the benefits of refinancing my loan through my credit union?

A: Refinancing a large loan, such as a motorcycle loan, into one that offers more affordable payback terms can make a huge difference in a monthly budget. Here are six reasons you may want to refinance your motorcycle loan through your credit union. 

  1. Lower interest rates

Credit unions consistently offer interest rates that are lower than those offered by banks. In fact, the most recent data shows the interest rate on an average 60-month new car loan through a bank is nearly two points higher than a similar loan taken out through a credit union. Refinancing your motorcycle loan through your credit union can help you save a significant amount over the life of your loan. 

  1. Favorable terms 

When you refinance a loan through San Antonio Citizens Federal Credit Union, you can count on favorable payback terms to help ensure your payments are affordable. Our member service representatives will work with you to come up with a repayment plan that works best for your budget.
