How to cancel and close your credit card
You can close your credit card at any time, but first you need to clear your balance to £0.
Prepare to close your credit card
To close your credit card, you need to:
- be the main account holder, not an additional cardholder
- bring your credit card balance to £0
- tell us you want to close your credit card, then
- cut up and safely dispose of your credit card.
If you only cut up your card, the account will stay open.
