What do you need a credit card for?

You’ve probably got a good idea about what you need from a credit card, at least in the short term. But it might be useful to learn about the types of credit cards offered by Lloyds Bank, including:

    • How to apply for a Lloyds Bank credit card
    • Before you apply, you’ll need to check your eligibility with One Check. One Check will show the cards you can apply for and what credit limit and interest rate you could get.Once you’ve checked your eligibility and found the card you want to apply for, follow the instructions and fill out the rest of the application form 

      The credit limit and interest rate we offer you will depend on a number of things. These can include your past borrowing history, how well you manage your accounts, your income, spending commitments, and more.

      By using One Check, the eligibility checker, you can see the interest rate and credit limit we could offer you before you apply. It only takes about five minutes and because it does a ‘soft’ search, it won’t impact your credit score.

    • What is a credit score in UK?
    • There are 3 main credit reference agencies in the UK. Each collects information about you from public records, lenders and other service providers, which helps them to create a ‘credit score’.This number indicates how likely you are to repay anything you borrow, based on your past history of using credit and managing finances. A higher credit score could mean you’re more likely to be accepted when you apply for credit, although it’s not a guarantee.However, it’s useful to know that you don’t have one credit score. Each credit reference agency could hold different information about you, and has their own way of scoring. Your score also changes over time, just as your circumstances do.

      Not only that, but lenders and other service providers complete their own scoring when you apply for credit, including information from your credit record. They also consider other factors like affordability and any past account history.

    • Below are examples from the credit reference agencies Lloyds Bank use:

      How to improve your credit score

      Anything you do will take time, but you could improve your credit score by:

      • Paying all bills on time – including credit repayments, utility and other household bills.
      • Managing accounts well – stay below your credit limits and try to reduce debit balances whenever possible.
      • Limiting applications – whether or not you’re accepted, ‘hard’ credit searches could affect your credit score, especially if you make a number of full applications in a short period of time.
      • Registering to vote – it may boost your credit score if you’re on the electoral register.
