What is a credit card?
A credit card gives you access to credit up to an agreed limit, so you can pay for goods or services anywhere Mastercard is is accepted.
With a credit card, you should aim to pay the balance owing in full each month to avoid paying interest on your purchases. There are other fees and charges that apply which are outlined on our website.
If you’re looking to use a credit card for a large one-off payment, it might not be the right product for you. You can talk through your options with someone in our team either at your local branch or by giving us a call on 0800 400 600.
If you think a credit card is right for you, the next step is to decide which type of card to get. To help you decide which credit card is best for you, compare our cards.
