NatWest and RBS have increased the interest-free balance transfer period on their platinum credit cards to 16 months.

The Natwest Platinum credit card and the RBS Platinum credit card now offer 16 months of zero per cent interest on balance transfers from the account being opened, up from the previous offer of 15 months.

They also have an interest-free introductory offer on purchases for three months from the credit card account being opened.

Commenting on the improved offer, Hugh Chater, director of Everyday Banking at NatWest and RBS said: "Our platinum card is by far the most popular credit card we provide, and we wanted to make it even more competitive by extending the balance transfer window.

"We know our customers value the flexibility and convenience of having a 0% balance transfer facility, and we are committed to offering attractive and helpful products that customers really value."

The cards were previously only available to existing current account customers, but now available to new customers as well, and are only available online.
