Virgin Money has increased its 0% balance transfer period to 18 months, one of the longest terms on the market.

The Virgin Money Credit Card MasterCard (issued by MBNA Europe Bank) now charges 0% on balance transfers for an 18 month introductory period (previously 16 months).

This extension to the 0% introductory balance transfer deal makes this one of the longest balance transfer offers available, however, there are other cards available elsewhere with the same length of deal with lower balance transfer fees.

The card continues to offer 0% on card purchases for 3 months and applicants using the card for spending can make use of Virgin Money's fantastic discount scheme that can save you money across the Virgin group and beyond, such as discounts off Virgin Holidays, Virgin Wines and Virgin Experiences.
