Virgin Money Balance Transfer Card

The long 39 month Virgin balance transfer card is now no longer available to new customers. This Virgin balance transfer card was withdrawn from the UK credit card market on 23rd October 2017.

Virgin Money have now withdrawn both of their 41 month and 39 month long balance transfer cards from the market.

The number of balance transfer credit cards have reduced over recent months as the UK credit card companies have either removed their longest balance transfer cards all together, or reduced the length of the introductory 0% balance transfer offer.
