Hi, im currently paying off a loan with the halifax for a car i bought last year i borrowed the money over 3 years paying £240 a month, i have 24 months left to pay but i was woundering if i could take out a credit card and pay my loan off with interest free credit and save maybe £40 a month could anyone tell me if this is possible, im hopeless with money so any advice would be most appreciated.

    Depending on your credit history you might be able to get a credit card like mbna, egg or post office which are the only ones allowing to transfer fund from your credit card to a current account. You also have to remember that you may not get a credit limit large enough to pay off everything, that generally you can only transfer about 90% of your available credit, and once the 0% offer is ending then you'll need to transfer the debt again.
