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.

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.

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

Losing your heating and hot water supply can be hugely distressful and upsetting, but if you have breakdown cover in place, you can at least call on the services of an expert engineer to put things right. And if there’s an annual service thrown in, the problem might not arise in the first place.

Boiler cover and central heating

Boiler and central heating repairs can be really expensive, so if you don’t think you’d be able to find a big lump sum quickly, this sort of cover is well worth considering.

Boiler cover-only policies don’t pay out for repairs to radiators or any other part of your central heating system, but boiler and central heating cover will protect both.

Full central heating system boiler policies will include cover for any boiler repairs to things such as your radiators, pump and flue.

Engineer visit

You will be given a contact number to call when you buy your policy, so that if your boiler or central heating does break down, you only need to make one phone call to arrange for an engineer to come out and fix it.

Most of these helplines operate 24/7, so that you have peace of mind that if something goes wrong at night or at the weekend, you’ll still be able to arrange for someone to come out, without having to fork out for hefty call out charges.

Call-out fee

Parts and labour are usually included, and more comprehensive policies won’t impose a limit on the number of call outs you have. There may, however, be a fixed call out fee, typically £50 or £100, to pay every time an engineer comes, so check before buying.

Many policies come with an annual boiler service included, so you can make sure everything is in good working order and that your boiler is running as efficiently as possible.

Some policies will also provide a new replacement boiler if your boiler is less than 7 years old and is beyond economical repair. If your boiler was installed more than 7 years ago, you may still be entitled to a discount off the cost of a replacement boiler.

You may be offered a boiler and central heating policy by your energy supplier, but always shop around for cover before buying, as you may be able to find a cheaper standalone policy elsewhere.
