What is a credit card balance transfer?

A credit card balance transfer is where you move an existing debt from a credit card, store card or personal loan to your credit card.

When you request a balance transfer with Virgin Money, you are asking your existing debt provider (lender) to move your outstanding debt to your new Virgin Money credit card.

Balance transfers can be used to consolidate and help manage debt obligations. Moving debt to a credit card with a low promotion or introductory interest rate can help reduce the amount of interest payable on the debt.

When considering a balance transfer promotion, it’s easy to focus on the low, or zero, interest rate being offered however don’t forget to consider the other features of the card and any applicable terms and conditions of the promotion.

What is a Balance Transfer fee?

A balance transfer fee (BT fee) is a fee charged to you to transfer an existing balance from one credit provider to another. This fee is often a percentage of the amount you are transferring and is usually added to the balance on the new card.

For example, if the BT fee is 2% and the balance transferred is $500, the BT fee payable would be $10.

Make sure you take this fee into account when you're working out your repayments as well as how much the balance transfer deal will really cost you. BT fees will be clearly stated in the offer details so remember to read them carefully as well as the terms and conditions.
