PPI claim news: Credit cards can be handy if used correctly

Although some credit card users may be in the middle of a payment protection insurance (PPI) claim having been mis-sold the cover, an expert has suggested that having plastic to fall back on can be advantageous.

Editor of Annie Shaw believes there are many benefits to having a credit card, but consumers must use them responsibly.

Indeed, she noted that paying for goods with a credit card gives people more protection if the company they are buying from goes bust before they receive their items.

However, Ms Shaw added that Britons who use their plastic because they do not have enough cash in their bank are playing a dangerous game.

"It becomes very worrying if people are using it because they actually don't have enough money and then they are not paying off that bill every month," she commented.

A recent study conducted by the Post Office showed that more than one-third of credit card holders will rely on borrowed money to make everyday purchases in January.
