Credit card debt whilst self isolating
in Credit Cards
10 replies 1K views
I'm hoping that we get some leeway with credit card and debt payments during this time.
I have about £12k credit card debt, which I was clearing without problems until now. About £3k of which was a deposit on a wedding venue in Spain latter this year, which is non refundable. I will check with the card provider if we can get any of that back. However, I have asthma and now a cough and using my inhaler every day, something I haven't done in years, so I'm staying home.
I'm self-employed, so no income now, although I have some invoices due to be paid over the next few weeks. However, if I use that to bring my balances down, I'll have nothing.
Wondering who else suddenly found themselves in this position? There is talk of the government freezing or deferring mortgage/rent, bills & taxes, but for those of us who have debt, if there's no relief and this carries on, we're ruined.
