Credit Cards to meet your requirements:

Whatever your status or needs, Vanquis can offer a solution for you, including:

A sensible limit on credit cards

As a responsible lender, Vanquis Bank will seek to provide you with a credit limit that reflects your needs and your ability to manage your account.  As a new customer, you’'ll start with an easy to manage credit limit between £150 and £1,000^. You could get a credit limit increase on your 4th statement and further increases every 4 months, up to £3,000^. 

To be considered for a credit limit increase, you should make use of your credit limit without going overlimit and make your payments on time. By using your credit limit and keeping your account in order, you demonstrate to us that you can manage your account well and can handle the monthly repayments.

Please also keep your other accounts such as credit cards, loans, catalogues, mobile phone and mortgages in order and don’t take on too much debt elsewhere. Please remember this is just a guide and meeting these criteria does not guarantee you a credit limit increase.

Friendly UK Customer Service call centre

We offer responsible, reliable support when you need it. Our UK customer service agents are always very happy to listen to your needs and help. So apply today and start building your credit rating right away.

We also provide helpful services such as Repayment Option Plan, an optional feature of your Credit Card account. Find out more here: About Repayment Option Plan.

A simple online credit card application process

It’s easy to apply and it only takes about 5 minutes to apply for a Vanquis Visa Credit Card. We may be able to give you a quick decision within 1 minute, but we will certainly confirm receipt of your application within 1 minute and the next steps involved.

Flexible card repayment options

Life is unpredictable at the best of times. And we fully understand that your circumstances can change. That’s why our poor credit credit cards give you the flexibility to budget, in order to pay off what you can afford each month.

When money’s tight, you only need pay off the minimum amount, and when you can pay off more, you can too.

Similarly when you buy any goods with your credit card. You’ll enjoy up to 56 days' interest-free credit on any purchases provided that you paid off the entire balance for two consecutive months.

Convenient and secure online shopping

Like other credit cards, you can use your Vanquis Visa Card across the world to buy online and over the phone. It lets you buy things when you need them and pay for them when you've got the money. And it's secure too.
