Planning Financially for Your Dream Car in the UAE

Owning a car in the UAE offers freedom and convenience, but it’s a significant financial commitment. Careful planning is crucial to ensure a smooth and enjoyable journey towards your dream car. At Sav, we want to empower you to achieve your financial goals, and that includes saving for your car. Here’s a comprehensive guide to help you plan financially for your car in the UAE: 

Define Your Needs and Budget: 

  • New vs. Used: Consider your budget and usage needs. While new cars come with the allure of a fresh start, used cars offer a more affordable option. 
  • Fuel efficiency: Research fuel efficiency of different car models. In the long run, saving on fuel can make a significant impact on your budget. 
  • Running costs: Factor in insurance, maintenance, registration, and parking costs into your monthly budget. 
  • Monthly repayment affordability: If opting for a car loan, ensure the monthly repayments comfortably fit within your budget without compromising your other financial obligations. 

Leverage Sav for Goal-Based Savings: 

  • Set a realistic savings goal: Consider the total cost of the car, including down payment and ownership costs. 
  • Create a dedicated “Car Savings” goal on the Sav app. 
  • Utilize Sav’s automation features: 
  • Salary Sorter: Automatically divert a portion of your salary towards your car savings goal. 
  • Round Up Spare Change: Every purchase with your Sav card automatically rounds up the spare change and adds it to your car savings goal.
  • Stay motivated with Sav’s gamification features: Earn Sav coins for achieving milestones, which can be redeemed for exciting rewards, keeping you engaged in your saving journey. 

Explore Financing Options: 

  • Compare loan options: Research and compare interest rates, loan terms, and processing fees from different banks and financial institutions in the UAE. 
  • Consider a “Save Now, Buy Later” option: Sav’s unique feature allows you to save for your car while the brand contributes a portion to your goal, accelerating your saving journey. 

Additional Tips: 

  • Avoid impulse buying: Don’t rush into car purchases you can’t afford. 
  • Negotiate the best price: Don’t be afraid to negotiate the price of the car, especially when buying from a used car dealer. 
  • Consider alternative transportation: Utilize public transportation or carpooling options for everyday needs, reserving car usage for essential trips, potentially saving on fuel and wear-and-tear. 

By following these steps and leveraging the features of the Sav app, you can embark on your car ownership journey with confidence and financial responsibility. Remember, planning and saving are key to achieving your financial goals, and Sav is here to support you every step of the way.
