What is a credit card?

A credit card is a form of borrowing enabling you to pay for goods and services on credit then settle the account at a later date. Most credit cards will allow you to transfer a balance from another card, to spend in shops or online for goods and services, and take out cash using ATMs.

What types of credit card are there?

There are many types of card, so it’s important to consider how you will use it before you pick one. Card types include:

  • Balance transfer - move an existing balance to a card with lower promotional interest rates
  • Purchase - offers low interest rates on spending, generally for a set period
  • Rewards - get cashback, points, airmiles, Avios Points and more if you pay off the balance each month
  • Credit building - aimed at those who haven’t had a card before, or have CCJs or missed payments
  • Cashback – earn cashback as you spend on the card
  • Low rate APR – cards with low interest rates

Find out more about the different types of credit cards with our credit cards guide. Or see how much money you can save with our balance transfer calculator.

What is the best card for me?

The most important factors to consider when choosing a card are your credit rating and what you are planning on using the card for. You should also consider how you'll use the card: will you manage your account online or would you prefer a card from a high street provider? Be clear about what you want your card for and you will make the best choice.

Can everyone get a card?

Some cards are aimed at customers with a certain credit rating, such as some Platinum Cards being aimed at those with an excellent credit rating or bad credit cards aimed at those who’ve previously struggled financially.

If you’re unsure of your rating, our Card Matcher tool will check your likelihood of acceptance.

When taking out a new card you may also want to consider taking out income protection insurance which could help you keep up with your monthly repayments should you lose your job, become ill or get injured.
