Now transfer your credit card balance to a Pan Asia Bank Credit Card, pay it off in instalments and save big on interest !

Credit Cards can be a vital tool in managing one’s personal financials and its popularity has grown tremendously in recent times aided by attractive seasonal promotions offered by most credit card issuers. Unfortunately, this has also results in many individuals spending way above their income levels and then finding themselves struggling to pay off their credit card debts especially after a shopping season. Since the credit card interest rates generally tend to be higher than that of most types of credit facilities, carrying credit card debt can become a severe burden to the card holder.

As a practical and viable solution to ease the credit card burden, Pan Asia Bank introduced its Balance Transfer facility for the first time in Sri Lanka couple of years ago, along with their range of low interest credit cards. This facility allows cardholders to pay off their accumulated Credit Card debt in full over a specific period of time under a low interest rate, stated Mr Nalaka Wijayawardana- DGM Marketing, Cards & Deposit Mobilization of Pan Asia Bank.

Pan Asia Bank’s Balance Transfer facility enables cardholders to transfer their existing Credit Card balances to a Pan Asia Bank Credit Card without additional charges and pay it off in instalments. They also have the option to opt for an open ended balance transfer under a low interest rate without committing for an instalment payment plan. Either way, this facility offers them an opportunity to consolidate their credit card debt under a low interest rate and pay it off according to a plan that fits their cash flows.

Under the Balance Transfer Instalment plans, Pan Asia Bank offers seven different instalment options to customers. The table below illustrates the instalment value for every Rs.100, 000/- of the transferred balance under each instalment option.
