The cheapest way to use a credit card is to always pay it off in full every month – and then you pay no interest at all. But – if you don’t manage to pay off the full balance  – it’s nice to know which card has the lowest rate of interest before you apply.

Credit Card Without Credit Check

Sometimes , car hire companies and hotels require credit cards to accept bookings.

The bunq card , is a prepaid Mastercard credit card. But ,unlike a real credit card,- you can’t spend more than your balance. Every payment will be immediately deducted from your balance. But the card will be accepted like a credit card for things such as car hire and hotel reservations,

Credit Card Minimum Payment Warning:

Paying just the minimum repayment amount each month on a credit card is a costly way of paying off debt.

For example on a credit card balance of  €2000 and an interest rate of  19.2% with a minimum payment of 3% of the balance (or €25).

Paying just the minimum off each month would mean it would take 8 years to pay off the balance and you would end up paying a total of  €3417.

If instead, you paid a fixed amount of €100 a month – it would only take 2 years to pay off. The total repaid would be €2386.

Tip – Try and ensure you have at least two different types of payment cards, ideally from two different banks. This could be safer if there are any IT problems or outages with one of them.
