Expert review

Although you won’t have to look to far to find a longer 0% balance transfer deal, many people forget that there’s usually a fee payable when you transfer a card balance. And because the fee is generally a percentage of the balance being transferred, for larger sums this can get quite painful. With this card you get the 0% period without a transfer fee, so if you can clear your debt before the 0% period expires (and the card’s standard rate kicks in), this could be a smart option.

As an additional bonus there’s no interest charged on purchases for a limited period after opening.

Cardholders won’t have to pay an annual fee, and are also entitled to access the Mastercard Priceless Cities programme.

Repayment options

When it comes to repayments, you can make manual repayments online or over the phone (0345 606 2191), 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:
