Your personalised chance of approval

We've taken the details you gave, and used them to show you personalised scores to tell you the chance that you application for each card would be successful.

Why is this important?

Every time you apply for a credit card, a mark is left on your credit score. That means it's better get it right first time. Your scores help you understand which cards you have the strongest chance of getting.

It's easy!

The higher the score, the stronger chance you have of getting the card. If you see a very low score, you're probably better off choosing a different card.

image

If you see a high score, you can be fairly confident. The scores aren't a guarantee as acceptance of your application is at the sole discretion of the card issuer, but they should help guide your choice.

If you see a pre-approved score it may be subject to you passing additional fraud checks by the provider.

image

In some cases, we will not be able to display a score for a product because we do not have enough information about the card issuer's acceptance criteria or we have not been able to march your details at the credit bureau.

We work closely with our partners to improve our eligibility scores for all products that are of interest to you.

How our site works

With a contract in place, you know that, if a problem arises, you’ll have quick and ready access to an expert engineer who can either fix the problem or sort out a replacement, without the threat of a massive bill. You might even get an annual service as part of the deal.

Boiler and related covers - all products

It’s a fact of life that most of us will have some kind of problem with our property at some point, whether it’s a plumbing issue, broken down boiler or our electrics not working.

While you might know a good plumber, engineer or electrician, there are no guarantees they will be available when you need them, which is when home emergency cover can prove invaluable.

Policies can usually provide as much or as little cover as much as you want. For example, you can find plans which protect only your boiler, or you can opt for cover which includes plumbing, drainage, electrics and security as well as your boiler. 

You pay a monthly premium and in return can request help whenever something goes wrong.

Landlord protection

There’s also cover available for landlords who let out properties, so that if their tenants have a problem, expert help can be quickly at hand. Most providers offer 24/7 helplines, so that if an issue arises at the weekend or during the evening, you won’t have to wait days before someone can come and make repairs.

When buying cover, check to see if an excess is payable, or if there is a fixed call out charge every time someone comes out. You may be able to increase the excess so that your monthly premiums will be cheaper, but don’t make it so big that it isn’t affordable. 

Exclusion period

Most policies won’t pay out if you make a claim in the first couple of weeks after taking out cover, so always read the small print carefully before buying, so you understand exactly what is and isn’t included. 

For example, many boiler plans include a free boiler service in the first year, but you will usually be charged for this in the second year, so premiums will often rise then.

You should also compare as many different deals as possible to ensure you have found the most competitive policy possible.
