When the movie Dil Chahta Hai came out in the year 2001, the one thing most of us wanted to do was go on a road trip to Goa with our friends. Why wouldn’t you? The movie showed us how much fun a holiday with your friends can be. You would huddle with your friends and plan the things you can do and the things you would want to do. The only thing that would stop you was the fact, back in the day, you would not have enough money and borrowing from your parents would be a bad idea.

Those days are gone. If you want to go to Goa with your friends and do not have enough money, you can still borrow. This time from a financial institution like Tata Capital.

Institutes like Tata Capital give out personal loans for travel. Basically, a travel loan. Travel loans are a safe bet as it allows you to borrow as much as money you need pay for the vacation now and repay the loan later in easy installments or EMIs.

Now, when you think about a travel loan, we know you are thinking about interest rates and tenure. Before you avail your travel loan, you can check for you the travel personal loan interest rates, to get an idea about the cost of your loan. The same goes for tenure as well.

With a simplified application process, you can easily avail your travel loan in less than 72 hours. Do check for your personal loan eligibility before you apply for your travel loan.
