Line of Credit vs. Loan | TD Canada Trust


When it comes to borrowing needs – there’s no one size that fits all.

To help you decide which financial lending option might be right for you, keep the following in mind:

Do you have a well-defined borrowing need with a particular end goal – such as buying a car, consolidating debt or another major expense? Then a loan might be a better option. It provides a lump sum of money up front. You can choose a fixed or variable interest rate… and select your payment frequency ranging from weekly to biweekly, semi-monthly or monthly.

If, on the other hand, you need the flexibility to borrow for a variety of needs, without having to reapply every time, then a line of credit may be a better option – as the funds up to your available credit limit are there, whenever you want! And you only pay interest on what you use.
