UK consumers increased their credit card borrowing at the fastest annual rate in 17 years last month, according to data from the Bank of England. You can take action today to reduce the cost of your credit card debt by shifting it to a balance transfer card so you’re charged 0% interest while you pay it off.

You will need a good credit score to get the top deals. You can use the eligibility checker on our sister site GoCompare (select 0% balance transfer on the drop down menu) to see how likely you are to be accepted.

Here is one of the longest interest free period offers and unlike many others, two HSBC cards that offer set interest free periods.

If you get a 0% interest balance transfer card, always pay off the minimum amount each month and don’t spend on it. Aim to clear it before the 0% period ends, as interest payments will shoot up after. If accepted, the actual 0% period you get can depend on your circumstances, while fees mentioned are a percentage of the amount transferred.

Look After My Bills has partnered with GoCompare to help you compare lenders and credit cards to find the right deal for you on it’s website.
