Improve your Credit Rating with a Vanquis Visa Card

Maybe you're on a low income or retired? Perhaps you've run into difficulties and been left with bad credit or 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. Responsible use of our credit cards can help people with bad credit to rebuild their credit rating. So far we have already helped over 3 million people+ get back on their feet. Why not apply today and join them?

To build your credit rating with a Vanquis Visa Card, follow these 5 steps every month:

1. Use your Vanquis Visa Card.

2. Always stay within your credit limit.

3. Pay at least the minimum payment due on time every month.

4. Keep your other accounts such as credit cards, loans, catalogues, mobile phone and mortgages in order.

5. Don't take on too much debt elsewhere. You should be able to afford the debt that you have.

There are no guarantees, but if you follow these 5 steps consistently every month, you should be on track to improving your credit history and building a strong credit rating. If you don’t follow these steps, you could harm your credit rating and ability to obtain more credit. If you do miss a payment or go over your credit limit, get back on track as soon as you can by following these 5 steps. The sooner you do, the sooner you can start improving your credit history and building a strong credit rating.

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 after your 5th statement and further increases every 5 months, up to £4,000*^.

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.

A Simple Online Credit Card Application Process

It's easy to apply for a Vanquis Visa Credit Card. We may be able to give you a quick decision within 60 seconds, and we will certainly confirm receipt of your application within 60 seconds 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 to pay off the minimum amount, and when you can pay off more, you can do that too.

When you buy any goods with your credit card you'll enjoy 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. And it's secure too.
