Customers may want to make a credit card comparison following news that Saga is offering a new product for those wanting to pay by plastic.

The Saga Platinum credit card comes with a typical low rate of 15.9 per cent APR as well as zero per cent on balance transfers for six months.

Furthermore, Saga will not charge users of its credit card foreign currency exchange for goods purchased in Visa Europe.

Chief executive of Saga Group Andrew Goodsell said the new credit card will provide consumers the confidence they are seeking in the current climate.

"Consumers need reassurance this year and we are proud to offer a credit card which gives people the confidence that their payments will be managed fairly," he remarked.
