Welcome to Balance Transfer Expert. We are an independent, free to use website and provide a comparison service for every 0% balance transfer credit card that is currently available online in the UK.
Balance Transfers Explained:- Balance transfers can be defined as the process of moving an existing credit card balance from your current credit card to a new credit card, where typically the new credit card charges 0% interest on the balance for a limited time introductory period.
After this 0% introductory period has ended the credit card company will then charge any outstanding balance remaining on the card at a higher standard rate of interest. This standard rate will often be a representative 18.9% APR variable.
When a credit card customer transfers the credit card balance in this way by making a balance transfer, they are usually aiming to save money by paying no interest during the 0% introductory period.
