Credit Scores

Credit scores can be a confusing subject, as there is a lot of conflicting information about them out there. Our handy guides will set the record straight. We’ve got all you need to know – from what the difference is between your credit score, credit report and your credit history, to how lenders use them when you apply for a credit card, loan, mortgage, mobile phone contract, tenancy agreement or even pay monthly home or car insurance.

We’ll explain what makes a good credit score, and, if your credit history isn’t 100%, we have got a number of hints and tips on what you can do to improve it.
