You’ll also find easy-to-follow steps to help you boost your credit rating. And we’ll send you notifications to let you know about any important changes.
It’s totally yours. And it’s totally free.
Knowing your credit score is the key to taking control of your finances.
Your score shows you how much trust banks, insurers and even phone companies place in you. The more confidence they have in you, the better the offers and savings that will be available to you. And the better your options, the easier it is to live your life the way you want to.
Whatever your plans, getting your free credit score is the first step towards making them real.
Save money on utility bills
If you’re stuck with a pre-payment electricity meter, it could be that you’re being held back by a low credit score. And you could find that you’re locked out of the cheapest energy deals. Building your credit score will convince suppliers that you can manage your payments and allow you to switch to cheaper billing.
Get cheaper calls
The same goes for your phone. Not only is a monthly contract cheaper, it’s more convenient than managing pay-as-you-go top ups. A good credit score will help you connect with better deals.
Get a foot up on the property ladder
With a low credit score, you’ll find it hard to rent a flat. A landlord will only take you on as a tenant if they can trust you to pay your rent on time. Finding out your score is the first step towards improving it and opening the door to renting a place of your own.
You’re more likely to be offered the financial flexibility of an overdraft or a low-interest loan when your credit score is good.
And your monthly budget will be easier to manage when your credit report shows that you are a responsible borrower who can be trusted to keep their finances on track.
Checking your credit report has no impact on your credit rating. So you can look as often as you like.
And with alerts to let you know when there’s something on your credit report that needs attention, it’s a great way to track your finances and make sure that you stay in control.
Your Borrowing Power and Best Credit Matches are based on a soft-search eligibility check. This means that unlike a full credit check, it will have no negative effect on lenders’ decisions to offer you credit.
Knowing that you have access to affordable credit can make life’s big decisions easier.
You’ll find that as your credit score rises you unlock longer repayment terms. Financing a new car or taking out a loan to make some improvements around the house becomes more affordable.
And when you come to take out a mortgage – whether you’re a first-time buyer or looking for a new home for your growing family – a healthy credit report will help you secure the best rates.
Whatever your next move in life, when it comes to credit, it pays to know the score.
