Flights to selected destinations in Europe, including Berlin, Madrid and Paris, are available when you apply and get accepted for the Post Office credit card.

The card offers 0% balance transfers for the first 12 months (with a 2.98% fee), 0% commission on purchases overseas and 0% purchases for the first three months. After that it reverts to an APR of 16.9%.

The cities included in the deal are Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Dublin, Madrid and Paris. However, you will need to be flexible with dates of travel. In order to be eligible for the deal, you need to quote 'FLIGHT' in the application form when asked.


You have until 27 March to benefit from the offer. It's valid for 90 days from (and including) the date of issue but you can't travel on a public holiday, and there must be at least one overnight stay in between flights.

You also have to pay for taxes, fuel surcharges and booking fees.

Although this is a good deal, depending on what you need a credit card for there are better credit cards on the market. For example, Barclaycard, Nationwide and Virgin all offer similar cards with longer 0% balance transfer periods.

Once you apply for the Post Office card you will receive an instant decision and if your application is successful your card will be sent out within a week and a separate travel voucher sent from P&MM Travel Ltd.

More information can be found on the Post Office website.
