Personal Loan vs. Credit Card Calculator

Wondering whether a personal loan or credit card is financially more beneficial in the long run? Our handy personal loan vs credit card calculator helps you know the approximate difference between a personal loan EMI versus your credit card EMI, so that you can make better, more informed choices about your finances. Simply toggle the sliders below to the appropriate figures, to know how much money you can save.


Please note that the calculations are done on the basis of the personal loan interest rate being 12%. The final figures may change slightly if there is a variation in the personal loan interest rate being offered.

Why You Should Choose a Personal Loan?

When you borrow money via credit card, you are subject to high interest rates that compound over time and build up your debt even more. Often, the interest payments are much higher than the principal payments, which makes it difficult for you to get out of the debt cycle, unless you can repay the borrowed amount as a lump sum.

On the other hand, a personal loan gives you the benefit of a high loan value of up to Rs. 25 lakh at a nominal rate of interest, which is made even more affordable when you choose a Flexi loan. When you take a Flexi loan, you get access to a pre-set loan limit. You can borrow money from this loan limit whenever you need, and pay it back when you can. You get the option of repaying just the interest as EMIs for the first year of your loan tenor, which makes the loan even easier on your finances.

Thus, when you take a personal loan versus borrowing via credit card, your monthly EMI is greatly reduced, and your finances made more manageable in the short term as well as the long term.
