Fixed APR loans are loans that have an interest rate that does not change over the life of a loan, which means you pay the same amount each month.
Variable APR loans are loans that have an interest rate that will fluctuate over time in line with prevailing interest rates. They generally have lower starting interest rates than fixed rate loans, but the interest rate and payment amounts can change over time.
