I've ordered a replacement card 5 times but alas it never shows.. The advisers offered zero help just the same repetitive script rattled off with little care an even less resolve.


Perfect for travelling abroad

Always use the Clarity Credit Card especially when abroad because you get a great exchange rate but also no transaction charges which all add up if using another type of credit card

I use this card for holiday spending in Europe. There is no transaction fee and you always get the best exchange rate. I also received a special offer of almost a year's interest free credit on purchases.

This is the best card to take abroad, it does not charge you any fees when using to purchase goods. It is also good for using in this country too

Our review of Halifax | Clarity credit card

The Halifax Clarity Credit Card not only has a competitive representative APR, but also has less fees than most other credit cards, even those from Halifax. You aren’t charged an annual fee, there’s no fee for balance transfers, you can withdraw cash from ATMs and you can even spend in another country without being charged a fee – all of these perks add to the attractiveness of the Halifax Clarity Credit Card.

As well as the financial benefits of this card, Customers of the Halifax Clarity Credit Card are also granted fraud protection online and can also manage the balance of the credit card using both online and mobile banking. This allows you to keep up to date with payments and avoid the £12 charge for making a late payment or going over your credit limit.

The Halifax Clarity Credit Card has achieved an OPTIOSCORE that is average across the board. However, where they do fall down is their online reviews. Although they are none specific to the Clarity Credit Card, the reviews for Halifax as a whole are quite disappointing. With an overall rating of ‘bad’, customers have been left unhappy with poor customer service, high penalty charges and issues taking too long to be resolved.

Overall verdict: It’s disappointing to see poor reviews from such a big name in banking, but like anything, these reviews are only one side of the story. The Halifax Clarity Credit Card comes with decent benefits and is free from fees (unless you miss a payment or go over your limit).
