A line of credit is basically a loan that you only draw on periodically as you need it. Lending institutions, such as banks, will open them for you or your business based on your credit worthiness and charge you interest on the outstanding balance. It doesn't usually cost anything to have a line of credit, but you will have to pay it back with interest once you draw on it.

A line of credit is one type of revolving credit, which works similarly to a credit card. Both a line of credit and revolving credit have a set amount available to use, and when you pay down or pay off the amount, the credit is available for you to use again. A line of credit may use collateral to secure the loan, such as a business building, or it may be unsecured or without collateral, such as a credit card.

A home equity line of credit, often abbreviated as HELOC, is a credit line which is backed up by a second mortgage on the home. The credit is available to the borrower at any time via a check or debit card. Anytime the homeowner spends money from that credit line, that amount becomes part of the balance on the line of credit which will need to be paid back.

The easiest line of credit to open is a credit card. There are many credit cards who, for higher fees and interest rates, specifically target people with poor or no credit. Otherwise, if you open a line of credit with your bank (i.e. get a loan) you have to prove financial stability, and dependability.

Line of credit works somewhat like a credit card. In this you are provided a credit limit and you can withdraw as much as you like within the limit of the credit assigned to you that too for a fixed tenure. In a Line of Credit you can withdraw and deposit at your will. However, the fundamental difference is that of interest rate. It is much higher in credit cards as compared to Line of Credit. In some Line of Credit offers, such as the ones provided by the Bajaj Finserv, you don't have to pay the EMI by including your principal amount. You only have to pay the interest part and you can pay the principal later once the tenure is over. You can even prepay the amount without any additional charges. The best part of Line of Credit is that you only pay for what you have utilized and not the whole of pre set credit line.

A credit card is a type of revolving credit, whereas a revolving credit account may or may not be a credit card. Revolving credit can also include other types of accounts, such as a revolving line of credit with a bank or a home equity line of credit.
