When you have to manage your debt, it is important that you first of all find out how much debt you have and which creditors you owe.
Once you have created an overview of your debt, you can better lay down a repayment plan so that you can determine when you are debt free.
In addition, it is important that you also check whether you actually pay off all your debts or if you have defaulted debts. It can quickly become very expensive not to pay off the debt on time, as interest expenses, reminder fees etc. just become larger and larger.

Take a collection loan
If you have loans from several different lenders, you can advantageously take out a collective loan. A collective loan means that you collect your debt somewhere. By gathering your loans in one place, you will typically experience huge savings financially. In addition, you only pay off one loan each month, which gives a much better overview and fewer concerns.
Below you can see an example of a couple who applied for a loan from Good Finance. They had a lot less expensive loans, which they chose to collect at one bank.
- More small expensive loans: SEK 185,000
- OPEN: 20%
- Maturity: 10 years
- Total amount to be paid: approx.
- Collective loan: SEK 185,000
- OPEN: 7.95%
- Maturity: 10 years
- Total amount to be paid: DKK 260,000
- Savings: About SEK 140,000
As the above example shows, there can be a lot of money to save if one collects his loans in one place. You typically get a better interest rate while not paying various fees to several creditors.

Consider an interest check
Many Danes have a loan that they pay off automatically every month via the online bank or PBS. In Denmark, we are also a very loyal people, which is basically very positive. But that also means that we trust a little too much that we have always got the best price on our loan from our bank.
Therefore, many people forget to check whether they can actually get a better interest rate on their existing loans. If you do not regularly make an interest check, it could potentially mean that you miss out on huge savings.

An interest check simply means examining whether you can get your current loan cheaper from another bank. If you find that another bank can offer you a better rate on your loan, you can choose to do two things:
- 1. You accept the loan offer from the new bank
- 2. You use the offer from the new bank to negotiate a better rate with your current bank.
