Clear your existing card debt faster with 29 months’ 0% interest when you switch to this Halifax deal.
If you have outstanding credit card debt on a card (or cards) not issued by Halifax, this promotion could let you take a lengthy break from paying interest. As an added bonus, the card comes with an introductory 0% period for purchases too, so if you’re anticipating a large upcoming expenditure, you’ll be able to spread the cost over 3 months.
If you do opt to transfer your balance(s) to Halifax, bear in mind that each transfer will incur a fee of 3%, and don’t forget that if you don’t clear your balance in full within 29 months, any outstanding balance will start to accrue interest at the card’s standard rate.
This card is on the Mastercard network, so it’s accepted in more than 40 million locations worldwide. You’ll also be able to enjoy access to Priceless Cities experiences.

When it comes to repayments, you can make manual repayments online or over the phone (0345 944 4555), or alternatively set up a direct debit. A direct debit is a great idea because it protects you from forgetting to make a repayment and either damaging your credit score, getting hit with a penalty fee or losing any promotional rates as a result. You can arrange a direct debit for repayments when you apply for the credit card. The table below shows the options available.
Choose from the following direct debit options for your monthly repayments:
