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

These things happen – but at least if you have a breakdown plan in place for the boiler and central heating you can call on an expert engineer to fix the problem, or even authorise a replacement, at no additional cost. You can even get the peace of mind of having an annual service as part of the contract.

Landlord services

If you own property which you let out, then the chances are you’ll know how stressful it is to suddenly have to find an emergency plumber or electrician when your tenants need one.

Landlord cover can provide valuable peace of mind that you’ll have an expert on hand to help sort things out whatever the problem, whether it’s a plumbing or drainage emergency, or an electrical or boiler issue.

Many policies also cover security and roofing, so if, for example, there is a break in and the locks are damaged, a locksmith will come and secure the property.

If the policy you choose includes boiler cover, it may also come with an annual Gas Safety Inspection and an annual boiler service. This is often free in the first year, but there may be a charge in subsequent years.

Single point of contact

You’ll have one number to call, and once you’ve explained what’s wrong, an approved engineer will be sent to the property to make repairs. 

There will usually be an excess to pay, typically £50, every time you make a claim. An engineer won’t be sent until the excess has been paid.

It is the landlord’s responsibility to pay this excess, not the tenant’s, but a payment from the tenant will be accepted so that the claim can proceed quickly. 

Some polices allow you to choose a bigger excess in order to reduce monthly premiums. Remember, however, that the excess should be affordable, otherwise you may struggle to make a claim at all. 

Cover restrictions

Check for any restrictions before taking out this kind of cover. Some plans only provide cover for houses and bungalows, but not flats and mobile homes, whereas other policies are designed specifically for landlords with flats.

There will normally be an exclusion period when you first take out the policy, during which you cannot make a claim. This is often 14 days, but can be 30 days in some instances.
