When the introductory period ends, the purchases rate applies for Gold Mastercard customers.

* The interest rate due on all balance transfers will be fixed for the period of six months (except for the introductory rate) from the date the transfer is debited to the account after which it will form part of the general balance outstanding on your account and be charged interest at the rate you are then paying.

You have to pay a cash handling fee of 3% (min £3) for cash withdrawals or if you buy foreign currency and travel services. APR's and fees may vary. If your outstanding balance is less than £5 you must pay it off in full by the date shown in your statement. If your outstanding balance is more than £5 you must make a minimum payment of either £5 or all interest and default fees that have been added to your account that month together with 1% of the remaining balance on your account, whichever is the greater.

Cash advance rate is charged on the cash advance balance. This is the amount you owe us for cash advances which includes transfers to another account which are not balance transfers, or if you buy any foreign currency or travellers’ cheques, or use your card for gambling. We will also add any interest and charges on those amounts to the cash advance balance.
