Choosing The Right Credit Card if You Live in The UK

Posted at January 13th, 2010 | Categorised in News and Articles

Credit card companies are all over the world and so are credit cards.  Some of the credit card companies only offer cards to a specific country or region that they are in.  If you live in the UK, then you might need some information about credit cards that are available for you.

Credit cards that you get in the UK are not any different from any other credit cards.  The credit card companies offer special incentives to get customers like 0% APR for a specific time period, no annual fees, and you may even be able to apply for the credit cards online.  Many credit card companies based in the UK do not give their cards to consumers in other countries due to security reasons.  However, if you live in the UK, then there are many companies that are sure to let you fill out an application to receive their specific credit card.

There are many companies that encourage you to apply online.  They overwhelm you with ads, promising a 60 second approval.

Credit card use in the UK can cause financial problems just as it does all over the world.  People in the UK owe tens of billions of pounds in credit card debt at an interest rate of over 16% and this figure keeps getting higher and higher.  Debts over 2500 pounds are common to ten percent of the people in UK and combined with high interest rates, this figure is near impossible to get to come down.

There are some benefits to having a credit card that a great many UK consumers find appealing.  Some of the credit card companies offer cash back with purchases, air miles, travel insurance, and insurance for your purchases.  A credit card looks good to many UK consumers, especially when you add in the discount vouchers.

When you decide to apply for a credit card, you should research all of your choices to find the one that is best for you.  Once you receive it, you need to be careful in using it or you could find yourself in a financial mess.  If you use your credit card wisely, then you will find that it will make your life easier, no matter what country you live in.
