Instalment Plans

What is an Instalment Plan?

Our award winning Instalment Plans allow you to pay off eligible purchases or an expired 0% balance transfer over a term which best suits your needs. This can be between 3, 6, 12 or 24 months.

You will not pay interest on any balance that is on a plan but you will pay a set monthly fee over the selected term. You will pay the same amount each month for the duration of the plan.

Instalment Plans in a nutshell

  • The monthly amount and fee for the plan will vary dependant on the amount and term of the plan.
  • You can set up, track and manage your plan in the mobile app.
  • It’s a simple way to make regular payments against eligible purchases that you don’t want to pay off in one go.
  • You can set up one easy to manage Instalment plan for up to 5 individual transactions.
  • You can also set up an Instalment Plan to help pay down an expired 0% balance transfer.
  • An Instalment Plan is part of your existing credit limit and it does not free up additional funds when a purchase or balance transfer is moved to an Instalment Plan.
  • By taking out an Instalment Plan it could mean that you pay the plan balance back quicker than other balances on your card.
  • Payments to your Instalment Plan are voluntary and you can cancel your plan at any time without penalty.
