BALANCE TRANSFER CREDIT CARDS

Use our handy calculator to help you pick the right option from our range

The amounts here are illustrative and based on:

  • The information you give us;
  • Your payments being made on time;
  • Transfer being made at account opening;
  • No further transfers or payments.

If any of these change when you use your new card the amount you pay might be different from what you see here.

To get the promotional rates shown just make sure you make your transfer within the first 60 days, stay within your credit limit and make the minimum payment on time.

In some months your minimum payment may be higher than the amount you’ve entered. We have assumed the minimum payment is always made in the illustrative cost breakdown below.

Top questions and answers

Will I be approved for a card?

At the end of the application process we'll carry out a credit score and we'll tell you whether you've been approved. In some circumstances, we may need some additional information and we'll let you know if this is the case. When making our decision, we'll take into account your age, status and financial background. Before you apply, check the following statements are true:

  • I am aged 18 years or over (the same goes for any additional cardholders).
  • I am a UK resident.
  • I have a UK bank or building society account.
  • I have good credit history.

You won't be approved if you are bankrupt or in an IVA, and it is unlikely that you'll be approved if you have CCJs or defaults and if you have no credit history. If you are unsure of your credit history, then please contact Experian for a copy of your credit file.

How long will it be before I hear?

We aim to tell you if we have approved your application straightaway. Sometimes, we may need to ask you for a few more details first – if we do, we’ll let you know immediately after you’ve made your application, then get in touch to request the additional information from you.

Where can I find out about your charges and interest rates?

You can find detailed information about our charges and interest rates in the summary box. When you have chosen a card, the summary box PDF will be visible on the “Apply Now” page beneath the product summary at the top of the page. Here’s an example:

How much is the balance transfer fee?

If you are looking to transfer a balance from another credit or store card and want to find out how much your fee would be, then you can go to our balance transfer calculator to work this out. All you need to do is enter how much you would like to transfer and we will do the rest.

The initial fee charged for transfers may be higher than shown. The difference will be refunded to your account as a direct credit. Fee refunds only apply to transfers made in the first 60 days from account opening. The refund will happen automatically, there is nothing you need to do. Any fee refund will show on your online statement.

Is it easy to transfer a balance from another card?

Yes, it is straightforward to transfer a balance online or over the phone. See our contact us page for ways of getting in touch. Remember though, you will need to do this within the first 60 days to receive the introductory balance transfer offer. Plus, the promotional period starts from the date your account is opened, not from when you transfer your balance.

How much is the money transfer fee?
