What is a money transfer?
Exploring one of the ways you can use your credit card.
A money transfer is when you transfer funds from a credit card directly to a bank account for use on purchases.
- You can only send money to your own UK current accounts.
- As well as interest, money transfer fees may apply. This is usually a small percentage of the transferred amount.
- A money transfer is subject to approval.

A closer look at money transfers
You may be charged a money transfer fee
This fee is usually a small percentage (up to 5.00%) of the amount you’re transferring into your current account. You’ll most likely be charged each time you make a money transfer.
You’ll also pay interest, but the rate can vary
If you get a promotional interest rate but don’t clear your balance before it finishes, you’ll move onto your standard money transfer rate. The sooner you clear your balance, the less interest you’re likely to pay.
You can’t transfer to a foreign account, or one that isn’t yours
Any money transfer must always be sent directly to a UK current account in your name.
The minimum amount you can transfer is £100
The maximum amount varies from person to person, depending on your credit limit and your credit available at the time.
