Virgin Balance Transfer Card

Virgin Money Balance Transfer Card

The long 29 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 This Virgin balance transfer card was withdrawn from the UK credit card market on 26th May 2019.

Virgin Money have now withdrawn many of their 0% balance transfer cards from the market.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.

This is in many cases because of the uncertainty about the future finances of potential customers due the current Coronavirus pandemic.

There are however, a number of alternative 0% balance transfer credit cards with long introductory balance transfer offers, that are currently available to Virgin credit card existing customers. These include all of the following popular featured 0% balance transfer credit cards:-
