What is APR?


The Annual Percentage Rate, or APR, refers to the annual cost of your loan. The APR includes all costs of financing your loan, the effect of compounding interest, and any administration or origination fees. 

It is not the rate at which your interest accrues on your loan. 

APR is a great tool for comparing offers between banks and other loan providers because it takes everything into account.
