Prepaid Cards

These cards are a relatively new option for people who may find it difficult to obtain a traditional credit card. A prepaid card works in a different way to a debit or credit card as you have to load money onto the card beforehand, and you can only spend up to the value that has been loaded onto the card. However, they have the convenience of credit cards as they can be used anywhere in the world where either MasterCard or Maestro cards are accepted, dependant on which merchant operates the card.

Prepaid credit cards can also be purchased as a gift for a third party and some of the cards are reloadable, which means that you can top them up by cash or bank transfer. People who don't have a bank account can find prepaid cards an advantage as they only need details of their name and address and proof of ID in order to obtain one. Also there are no credit checks carried out so even if you have very bad credit you should be able to acquire one.

When shopping around for credit cards, please bear in mind that numerous applications could affect your credit history. It is best to check out the cards available to you before applying. Many credit card companies set out their requirements on their websites, and also give details of interest rates, credit limits and repayment terms, the cost of the card (some are free to purchase) enabling you to look for a card that suits your needs.
