What is a balance transfer credit card?

With a balance transfer credit card, you can move a balance from another credit or store card to a Virgin Money credit card. You could get a 0% introductory or promotional interest rate for a fixed number of months. When the introductory or promotional interest rate ends, the standard interest rate at that time applies to your remaining balance. This can mean you'll pay less interest, and pay off what you owe faster. Sweet.

Tipping the balance in your favour

From the date of account opening you’ll get:

When these promotional rates end, we’ll charge the standard interest rate.

Good to know

Credit is available, subject to status, only to UK residents aged 18 or over. If we do not receive the minimum payment when it's due, or you go over your credit limit, we will withdraw the promotional rate with effect from the start of that statement period. You will not be able to transfer a balance from another Virgin Money, Clydesdale Bank, Yorkshire Bank, or B credit card.

With a money transfer you can move up to 95% of your credit limit into your current account. With a balance transfer you can move up to 95% of your credit limit to your Virgin Money Credit Card.

Questions about balance transfer credit cards

A balance transfer credit card could be a good option if you are paying interest on existing credit cards or stolen cards. Bringing balances from other credit cards together onto a single balance transfer credit card can help clear your outstanding credit card debts while minimising what you pay in interest.

Remember, there's usually a fee for making a balance transfer. But even after you've paid this, you could still be better off.

  • How long will the promotional rate last?
  • Will you save money over the promotional period – even after paying the balance transfer fee?
  • What is the standard interest rate after your promotional period ends?
  • You’ll need to make your minimum payment when it’s due. If you don’t, we’ll stop your promotional rate (from the start of that statement period). So it’s worth setting up a Direct Debit to meet your monthly repayment.
  • When your promotional rate ends or we stop it, we’ll charge you the current standard interest rate.
  • The balance you're transferring can't be from another Virgin Money, Clydesdale Bank, Yorkshire Bank or B credit card. And you shouldn’t use your card to repay borrowing from Clydesdale Bank PLC (like a loan, overdraft or mortgage).
