5 monthly steps to build your credit rating with a Vanquis credit card
- Use your Vanquis credit card.
- Always stay within your credit limit.
- Pay at least the minimum payment due on time every month. If you can only make the minimum payment each month, it will take you longer and cost you more to clear your balance. To reduce the amount of interest charged, we recommend you pay as much as you can, when you can and not just the minimum payment.
- Keep your other accounts such as credit cards, loans, catalogues, mobile phone and mortgages in order.
- Don't take on too much debt elsewhere - you should be able to afford the debt that you have.
A simple online application process
Maybe you're on a low income or retired? Perhaps you've run into difficulties and have been left with bad credit or a poor credit history?
You may simply have no credit history.
We assess your personal situation now rather than just turning you away based on the past, so we can help find the best credit card for you.
