What is a credit card?

Credit cards are a flexible way of borrowing money to pay for bills, goods or services.

The credit card provider sets a limit on how much you can spend on the card based on your financial circumstances.

When you reach that limit, you can't use the card until you have paid off some of the balance.

There's no set time to pay off the debt, but there's a minimum monthly amount you need to pay back to avoid penalties, however, you're free to pay off more than that.

And short-term borrowing is interest-free if you pay off the balance in full each month.

Credit cards can be of great benefit to some when used responsibly. However, missing payments or using all of your credit limit can impact your credit score.

Comparing credit cards

You normally apply for a credit card online or in-branch at a bank or building society.
