      Hi Stefan,

      To answer your questions:

      1. How do I close my Amex Virgin Velocity card – Basically, you may close your Amex Virgin Velocity card at anytime, however, you may need to fully pay your outstanding balance on that card before closing it. If you’ve decided to close your account, you can contact your bank’s customer care to assist you in cancelling your card. We have a guide on this page about closing a credit card which you may find useful.

      2. find the best 0% balance transfer card – Although I can’t recommend a specific balance transfer credit card to you as we are comparison site, you may compare your options on these pages:
      https://www.finder.com.au/credit-cards/no-fee-balance-transfer-credit-cards
      https://www.finder.com.au/credit-cards/0-annual-fee-0-balance-transfer-credit-cards
      https://www.finder.com.au/credit-cards/credit-card-balance-transfer-calculator

      If you are transferring your debts from AMEX Virgin Velocity Card to the new BT card, you have the option to whether close this card or not. Please be mindful though that you’ll be stuck paying any maintenance costs for a card you’re not using. Also, please note the following when conducting a balance transfer:

      – You can’t transfer a balance to a credit card that is also underwritten by the same brand/institution – for your guide please refer to this page. Since your balance is from Virgin credit card, you may have to choose a BT card that is not issued by Virgin Money and Citibank.

      – Although you are allowed to transfer balances from one or more card, the total amount you can transfer should not exceed the credit limit you’re approved for the new card. Depending on the card, you can transfer 70%-95% of the available credit limit. You can also find this info in the PDS of the card.

      3. Qantas Cash Card – As for this card, this is a reloadable Mastercard Prepaid that supports 10 Currencies that you can load onto the card, so you may not be able to transfer a credit card balance to this card. You can learn more learn more about this product here.

      4. Just not sure how the process goes, once i’ve chosen a card and want to transfer the balance? – If you want to know more about how to conduct a credit card balance transfer, you may like to read this guide.

      Hope this helps.

      Thanks.

      Carlo
