From birthdays and graduations to anniversaries or retirements, we love a good get together to celebrate with friends and family. And the bigger the celebration, the more it's likely to cost to plan an event to remember. So rather than scaling it down, could a logbook loan help to pay for your special occasion?
When it comes to special occasions, we all love to celebrate. And it doesn't matter what the occasion is either. So whether it's a full-blown party that goes on into the small hours, an afternoon gathering with prosecco and canapés, a luxury evening meal for a chosen few, or even a romantic luxury holiday for two, you'll want to mark your event in style.
Whatever you choose for your special occasion, it's natural to want to have the biggest and the best event to commemorate the special day or event. But because you want it to be special, not only for you but for any guests as well, before too long, you could see your plans and budget starting to snowball.
Life and soul of the party
Long since the basis of any celebration, a party can be as big or as small as you like. But if you have a 'special' birthday in the pipeline, such as an 18th or 21st (or older), or maybe even a graduation party for your son or daughter as they finish their degree, then pushing the boat out will make sure your guests - and the guest of honour - go home happy.
Remember, the younger the demographic, potentially, the more guests you'll have, so hiring a suitable venue should be your first priority. You could hire a club to set aside a 'VIP' area for you, or perhaps use a function room in a favourite pub or hotel. Whichever you choose, it's likely you'll need to book it well in advance, as well as laying down a healthy deposit.
Food and drink shouldn't be overlooked either. Will the venue cater to your guests? Depending on the party, you could opt for finger food and nibbles, or go a step further and lay on a buffet. Again, expect a considerable cost from the venue if they are supplying any of the food. There's also the option of using outside caterers, but they'll also charge accordingly.
But more importantly, what about the drinks? You could limit this to one free drink on arrival with a paid bar thereafter. That way, at least you can budget for this by looking at the number of guests. But if you really want to make a good impression, you could opt for a free bar. The free bar option is a brave move and you could end up with a bar tab that runs into the thousands.
Once you add up the numbers for venue, food and drinks, you could see costs start to rise sharply. And there may be other costs to consider as well, such as a DJ for the night, special lighting or decorations. So getting a helping hand with the finances could start to look quite appealing. And a logbook loan to pay for your special occasion could be an easy and quick solution.
Everyone loves to go on holiday and, if finances are available, many people try to go on a sunshine break at least once a year. But, sometimes a little thing called life gets in the way and getting away from it all isn't always as easy as it should be. That's why a once-in-a-lifetime holiday for a special occasion can make it all the more special.
If you've got a special wedding anniversary on the horizon, want to celebrate your retirement, or maybe you just want to pay for one big family get together, then planning a holiday like no other can tick a lot of boxes for everyone. But it's usually anniversaries that get earmarked for special treatment. And rightly so - especially the 'big ones'.
So what could you do that makes a special holiday different from the rest? Start by looking further afield. You might have been on a bucket and spade holiday to somewhere in the Med a few times before, so if sun, sea and sand are for you, why not look into luxury romantic getaways to the Maldives or the Seychelles? Perhaps you might be looking to experience as many cities and destinations as possible, in which case a luxury cruise could be a good choice.
Whichever holiday you choose, that once-in-a-lifetime experience and touch of luxury could cost a bit more than you imagined. But special occasions deserve special recognition, and holidaying in a new and relaxing place is the perfect way to celebrate.
But for many, taking them off for a significant anniversary to experience a romantic getaway isn't always achievable. Flights, accommodation and spending money all add up, making it seem all but impossible to achieve. That's where a logbook loan from Car Cash Point can help give you the extra finance you need.
A dream wedding
However, surely the most special occasion for anyone is a dream wedding. Brides-to-be will have been planning this for many years beforehand, and it's one of the biggest days of their life. But there's a lot to prepare for, and carrying off that perfect wedding will take some financial backing.
You could be forgiven for thinking that prices automatically seem to go up for anything to do with a wedding. But in reality, you simply get charged for an expert service. Whether its the flowers, photography, wedding cars or venue hire, getting the best usually comes at a price. But can you afford not to?
A wedding photographer can cost around £1500 and upwards depending on your location and their skills. But it's a small price to pay for professional photography services and tangible memories that you'll look back on for years to come. Getting another, cheaper, a less experienced photographer might save you money in the short term, but the results won't be as good. Why risk it?
And it's the same for the many pieces that go together to make any wedding day a day to remember.
From wedding favours for the guests, and gifts for the bridesmaids and best man, right down to your reception and everything that goes with it. It's the one day where everything needs to be perfect and you don't want that one 'could've, should've, would've' regret to niggle you for years to come.
But though it's traditional for the Bride's family to pay for the complete wedding, it could be a financial gap that might not be able to be bridged without some additional help. But with a logbook loan, there won't be any need to scrimp and save.
The low-cost logbook loan answer
With any luck, you might have some savings put aside to help you. Even if you do have a rainy day fund you can dip into, it might not be enough to cover your special occasion. But if you haven't got any savings to fall back on, there's no reason why you should go without when there are options available to you for borrowing what you need.
A logbook loan can help towards the cost of your special occasion or perhaps even pay for it outright. It's an ideal, low-cost way to help you celebrate in style. And Car Cash Point is ideally suited to let you borrow what you need, quickly, efficiently and safely.
How does it work?
Car Cash Point logbook loans are based on using any car you own as security against the loan. So you could borrow any amount from £500 up to £100,000 depending on the market value of your car and your ability to afford the regular repayments. All you need to get started is your vehicle logbook (V5 document).
With absolutely no hidden charges or fees, Car Cash Point always make sure all the information about your loan, together with any potential extra charges, is made crystal clear before you apply. And in jargon-free plain English too. There's also a really fair rate of interest on each loan, often less than half that of some other logbook loan lenders.
There are no penalties for wanting to end your loan early if you're able to, and no penalties for making overpayments, and the interest is reduced on the remaining balance every time you do. Plus, there are no credit checks, so even if you have a patchy credit history, you should still be able to get a loan. There's even a range of flexible repayment terms that will fit the way you receive your income too.
If you live in England, Wales or Northern Ireland, are the legal owner of your car (with no finance attached to it), and it's taxed with fully comprehensive insurance cover, then by calling 0333 220 4236 you could start your application today.
