    Yes, why? To confuse people?
    Any chance Helen S or Johanna are from some foreign country where they call all cards "credit"?

    The fact is that the article is about credit cards and debit cards.

    Hi grumbler, I've passed this on to Helen. She's working on tonight's weekly email at the moment but I'll ask if she can get back to you in the next day or so.

    Hi grumbler

    Apologies for the delay in replying

    The guide focuses on credit cards for the majority of it, so this is why we give the guide this title.

    But if people do want to switch bank, or open an additional account, we give useful cards for that too, and this is made clear in the anchors at the top, where you can jump to the debit card section if you wish.

    Well, I disagree, although you don't have to convince me.

    Many people don't use credit cards or can't get them. However, they travel abroad. They come to MSE, click "Travel & Motoring' in the blue bar above, then "Holidays & Flights" - and then they see "Travel Credit Cards Get one for one of the cheapest ways to spend abroad" and "Prepaid Travel Cards Lock in a top rate before you go ". One has to be a clairvoyant to know that information on debit cards is hidden in the 'Credit cards' article.

    BTW, in the popup of the same "travel and motoring", the link to the very same same article is called "Top Travel Spending Cards", - that is correct and not misleading.
    Why is it if the "guide focuses on credit cards for the majority of it, so this is why you give the guide this title"?

    But if people do want to switch bank, or open an additional account, we give useful cards for that too, and this is made clear in the anchors at the top, where you can jump to the debit card section if you wish.
    You lost me. What does this have to do with switching? I don't think that anyone would want to switch only for the sake of saving 3% on spending abroad.
