Which balance transfer credit card should I apply for?
There is no one right balance transfer credit card. Instead, you should complete your comparison based on your individual needs including the size of your debt, your ability to repay and how long you need to clear the entire debt. You should also consider other factors including the annual fee and revert rate to ensure that the card is an affordable option for you. For a more comprehensive comparison, please see our guide on balance transfer credit cards.
How much money will I save by doing a balance transfer?
Exactly how much you will save will also vary depending on the size of your debt, your repayments and the promotional offer you apply for. However, the interest you save will depend on the difference between the interest you would have paid on your current credit card account and the interest you'll avoid with the 0% balance transfer offer. If you use the balance transfer calculator in the tables above, the "interest saved" column will indicate how much you can save if you repay your entire balance before the interest-free promotion ends.
