Swapping your existing Halifax Credit Card

As an existing Halifax credit card customer you can apply to swap your credit card.

Swapping your Halifax credit card could allow you to take advantage of a new card with different features to suit your current need and lifestyle.

Swapping your card also means you only have one card in your wallet, as your current card will be closed and a new credit card issued.

How could swapping your credit card help you?

For example, you have an existing credit card that doesn’t work for you anymore. You may have taken out a credit card to consolidate your card debt and the balance has been paid off. Now you’d like to put day-to-day spending on a different card.

Swapping your card means you can have a new credit card that meets your current needs.

If you switch cards you may lose any promotional rates you have at the moment and your new card will have its own terms and conditions.
