The new Avantcard credit card is only available to new customers over the age of 18
Representative example: Assuming that you draw your entire credit limit in one transaction using your card for a period of one year, and repay in 12 equal instalments, the principal plus the respective interest amounts (if your credit limit has not yet been finalised, we have assumed that it will be €1,500), and the applicable variable interest rate is 16.8% (22.9% *APR), and Government stamp duty on the card is charged, the total amount you would have to pay would be €1,636.50.
You’ll need to pay your minimum monthly repayment on time each month and stay within your credit limit to keep your promotional rates.
When the promotional offer ends any outstanding amount will be charged interest at your standard variable rate.
