Virgin Money has made some changes to its 0% balance transfer card, turning it into an even better proposition.

The Credit Card MasterCard offers introductory balance transfers charged at 0% for 19 months (previously 18 months), and a balance transfer fee reduced to 2.49% (previously 2.87%).

This latest change from Virgin Money brings yet another extension to the balance transfer deal and in conjunction, a reduction to the balance transfer fee.

The card is once again one of the most competitive deals for debt transfers; however, there are longer deals available elsewhere, albeit by only one month.

As always the card offers three months interest free on purchases and card customers will have access to a discount scheme.
