Frequently asked questions
At its simplest, a credit card is a card issued by a bank or similar institution (often called a ‘provider’) that gives you access to money with which you can use to make cashless payments. It’s different to a debit card in that the money you access is not yours, but borrowed. So, you do need to pay that money back, along with any interest and other charges like an annual card fee. Beyond that, different types of credit card include rewards, low rate and low-fee cards which have different features, benefits and costs.
