Paying Credit Cards From Outside The UK
in Stoozing: free cash from credit cards
3 replies 1.3K views
Hi I was wondering if I could have some advice please. I am from the UK but moved to Ireland a number of years ago. I still have two UK credit cards which I have been paying by transferring money from my Irish bank account to my UK one. I really want to clear both these cards but the interest is so high on both. Also I am losing out transferring money from euro to sterling. I can't get a 0% uk credit card as I live outside the UK. Is there anything I could be doing as I really want to clear these debts.

Alternately, call the credit card companies and ask them if you can transfer directly - They are not going to accept Euro transfers (atleast without their pound of flesh), so the only way to make the final payment is through a £ account.
They can give you bank account details to which you can transfer money directly - just be aware of the problems of sending it as foreign exchange rather than sterling.
