Yorkshire Bank has extended the period that introductory balance transfers are charged at 0% from 12 months to 16 months.

On the balance transfer front, this credit card cannot be beaten and leads the way in the market, although those looking for a card that offers a preferable long term rate on purchases may want to look elsewhere.

The product does charge a transfer fee, but this is commonplace and is unlikely to deter potential applicants looking to transfer their debt.

The card is also available from Clydesdale Bank.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
