Terms & Conditions
These terms and conditions (“terms”) apply to all users of our website and app and to customers referred to us from third-party services. Please read them carefully. If you don’t accept them, please don’t use our services.
We may update these terms from time to time. Any updates will be posted to this page, so please check back frequently. If you continue to use our services after the update you will be considered to have accepted the new terms and they will apply to you.
Who we are
We are TotallyMoney Limited. We own and operate the personalised financial essentials website, www.totallymoney.com, and the TotallyMoney app. We provide a range of free services to help you better understand and improve your financial situation.
Depending on which of our services you use, we may act as an independent credit broker or insurance intermediary. We are not a lender or an insurance provider.
TotallyMoney Limited is a company registered in England (No. 06205695), with VAT number 974859255. Our trading address and registered office address is Chapter House, 16 Brunswick Place, London N1 6DZ.
TotallyMoney Limited is an Appointed Representative of TM Connect Limited, which is registered in England and Wales (Company Registration Number 06967012). TM Connect Limited is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority in respect of:
- Credit broking
- Providing credit information services
- Mortgage arranging
- Insurance mediation activity
You can check the Financial Services Register by visiting the FCA website (FCA FRN 511936). We also provide an energy comparison and switching service, which is not an FCA regulated activity.
TM Connect Limited is linked to the products branded as Fluid. TM Connect Limited is the owner of this brand but we don’t give it preferential treatment or greater prominence on our services – it is treated in exactly the same way as any other product.
Free of charge
All our services are totally free. You don’t have to apply for any of the products we offer (“products”) to use our services, and we don’t sell your data or charge third parties for access to it. Instead, the partners that we work with such as credit issuers, credit brokers or other service providers (referred to in these terms as “partners”) pay us a commission if you take out a new product with them.
Registering for a TotallyMoney account
You need to create an account with us to access the full range of our services, including:
- access to a free credit report and credit score service (our “credit report service”); and
- tailored information about your borrowing power and eligibility for products (your “Borrowing Power”);
- energy comparison and switching; and
- car insurance comparison.
When you register, you must give us true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself. The results we show you are based mainly on the information you provide. If you don’t keep your information up to date, your results are likely to be less accurate. We recommend that you update your account information regularly, and as soon as possible if something important changes (e.g. your address or income or outgoings). You can update your information in the “My Details” section of your TotallyMoney account, and we’ll sometimes give you a nudge to do so when you log in. If you are not sure how to amend your information, please email us – [email protected].
Your Borrowing Power
Your Borrowing Power is a score out of ten, which gives you an idea of the credit you may be able to access. If we have enough information to calculate your Borrowing Power, we calculate it:
- at the time you first register for an account with us;
- whenever you log in to our website or app;
- when you check your eligibility for credit cards or loans; and
- once a month while your account is live, to let you know if your Borrowing Power is changing.
We’ll show you your current Borrowing Power in your account. We’ll also send you a monthly service email to tell you about any changes to your Borrowing Power. If push notifications are enabled on your device, we may send you service messages by push notification. We’ll use your Borrowing Power to show you tailored information about products that might be available to you. See Tailored Offers below for more information about this. We reserve the right to stop calculating your Borrowing Power on a monthly basis if your account is inactive for 12 months or more.
Your credit report and credit score
3.4.1. Our relationship with the credit reference agencies
We work together with credit reference agencies to make our services available to you. A credit reference agency is a company that collects personal information from various sources and provides that personal information to banks and financial institutions to help them make credit decisions. A credit report shows you the information that a credit reference agency holds about you. We have appointed:
- Experian Limited ("Experian") to conduct pre-screening searches and eligibility checking; and
- TransUnion International UK Limited (“TransUnion”) to supply credit reports and scoring for the credit report service.
The partners we work with may also use credit reference agencies when they assess your eligibility.
3.4.2. Powered by TransUnion
Our credit report service is powered by TransUnion. This means that we share some of the personal information you give us with TransUnion and its subcontractors so that they can search their own and third-party databases to find information they hold about you. We can then tell you whether TransUnion is able to provide you with a credit report through TotallyMoney.
When we check whether TransUnion is able to provide you with a credit report and when we retrieve your credit report and credit score from TransUnion, we are making a subject access request under Article 15 of the GDPR to TransUnion, on your behalf.
By creating an account with us:
- you appoint us to act as your agent and representative in accessing and retrieving your credit report and credit score on an ongoing basis, for as long as your TotallyMoney account is open, from TransUnion as a credit reference agency;
- TransUnion as a credit reference agency shall be entitled to rely on this agency and related authorisation granted by you to us;
- you instruct us, on an ongoing basis without needing your further express permission, to submit (as your agent) a request for access to your credit history information to TransUnion, in accordance with your statutory rights under data protection legislation, for the purpose of providing our services to you.
For details of how we use your credit report data and credit score data, see our Privacy Notice.
3.4.3. Authenticating you for a credit report
When you sign up for a TotallyMoney account, we’ll may use your account data to check whether TransUnion is able to provide you with a free credit report and credit score. If we are going to do this check, we will make it clear to you in the sign up terms that are shown to you before you create your account.
You will need to successfully pass an authentication process before we can show you your credit report and credit score. The authentication process is designed and operated by TransUnion, not by TotallyMoney.
You may not successfully pass authentication. This may be because TransUnion:
- is not able to match your personal information to the correct credit report; or
- doesn’t hold enough credit information on you to create a credit report.
TotallyMoney and TransUnion are not required to tell you why you haven’t been successfully authenticated, whatever the reason.
3.4.4. Updates to your credit report and credit score
If you pass the authentication process (as above) and we are able to provide you with your free credit report and credit score, we’ll show you your credit report and credit score in your account.
We’ll ask TransUnion for your updated credit report and credit score data each time that you log into your account and once a month, while your account is live.
We’ll send you a monthly service email as a reminder that we have got your credit report and score data from TransUnion. If push notifications are enabled on your device, we may send you service messages by push notification. We reserve the right to stop updating your credit report and credit score on a monthly basis if your account is inactive for 12 months or more.
We use your credit report data to personalise and improve the service. For more details, see our Privacy Notice.
3.4.5. Incorrect information in your credit report
It is TransUnion, not us, who coordinates making changes to credit report data. If you wish to dispute the accuracy of anything shown in your credit report, please use the “raise a dispute” buttons in the “My Credit Report” area of your account to raise a dispute directly with TransUnion. If you have any questions about your credit report, please contact us in the first instance.
3.4.6. What happens if we can’t find your credit history
We can’t guarantee that we’ll be able to provide your free credit report or credit score. This is because you might not be found by the credit reference agencies or partners that we work with - for example, if you are new to the UK, or have a very limited credit history. In those cases, we’ll show you information that could help you to understand how to improve your chances of being found in future.
3.5.1 Product offers
We’ll show you credit cards, loans, mortgages and other products for consumers.
Your results for credit products are based on our “Match Factor” algorithm, which considers factors such as:
- your credit profile;
- your eligibility score;
- the features of the products; and
- lender reliability.
We sort your offers based on their features and the information that you have provided. Although we may be paid commission, this never influences how your offers are ranked.
3.5.2. Eligibility checks
We check your eligibility for products. We contact Experian and certain partners (who in turn may contact credit reference agencies). They use the information you provide to analyse your eligibility for products using their databases and their knowledge of the acceptance criteria for products (“eligibility checks”). An eligibility check isn’t an application for credit, and it won’t harm your credit rating. By checking your eligibility for a product on our website or app, you are not committing to make an application for that product. If you want to apply for a product you find on our website or app, we’ll pass you through to the relevant partner.
3.5.3. Our relationship with partners
We work with partners to present their products and related offers to you, and to allow you to apply for products on the partners’ websites.
Not all partners featured on our website and app provide eligibility information, so you might see products listed that have no information about your likelihood of being accepted for them. Even if your tailored results indicate that you are likely to be accepted for a product, this is not a guarantee that you will be accepted. The partner is entirely responsible for deciding whether to accept you, using its own acceptance criteria. The exception is where we indicate that you are “pre-approved” for a credit product (e.g. for a credit card or loan). In those cases you are definitely eligible for the product, but your application is still subject to passing the relevant lender or credit broker’s checks, for example fraud, ID, vehicle checks and responsible lending checks (which may include a check using open banking). See Pre-approval below for more information about this.
3.5.4. We’ll pre-populate partner application forms for you
If you click to apply for a certain product, we sometimes pass your information to that partner to pre-populate the application form and to make the process quicker for you.
3.5.5. What happens if you are an existing customer of a partner
When a partner assesses your eligibility for products, the partner may also tell us if you are an existing customer of theirs. This is because being an existing customer might influence your eligibility for additional products from the same partner. Being an existing customer could reduce your eligibility for additional products from that partner, or it might mean that you are pre-selected to see additional offers. It depends on the partner’s policies.
3.5.6. What partners tell us about your application
If you leave our website and app to apply for a product with a partner, the partner may give us information about your application. For example, they may tell us:
- Whether you completed your application; and
- Whether your application was successful, referred or declined.
If you give the partner additional information as part of your application, the partner may share that information with us, where relevant.
We use the information that partners give us to:
- calculate the commissions that we are due;
- to personalise the service to you;
- to send you service messages (for example, if an energy supplier declines your application to switch, we will email you to tell you why, and what to do next);
- to help us understand our customers, to improve our service and to inform our marketing strategy (i.e. research and development).
3.5.7. Third party brokers
The specialist credit brokers we currently work with are:
Aspire Money Limited
London & Country
Evolution Funding Limited trading as My Car Credit
NB Evolution acts on behalf of a number of specialist lenders, including Paragon Car Finance (Paragon Bank plc), Moneybarn (Moneybarn no.1 Ltd.) and Evolution Loans Ltd.
Zuto Limited trading as Zuto
247 Money Group Limited and CarFinance 247 trading as Car Finance 247
From time to time we may test different mortgage and loan brokers, but will we always make it clear who we are introducing you to.
We may tell you that you are ‘pre-approved’ or that you have ‘100% chance of acceptance’ for a credit product. These are general terms used by lenders and eligibility checking services to show that, based on the information you have provided, you are eligible for a credit product. But it is never a guarantee that you will get the credit product if you apply, because all applications remain subject to the relevant partner’s own checks, for example fraud, ID, vehicle checks and responsible lending checks (which may include a check using open banking). Your application may still be rejected.
At TotallyMoney, we make a distinction between ‘pre-approved’ and ‘card/loan approved’.
When we say you are ‘pre-approved’ or that you have ‘100% chance of acceptance’, it means that:
- you are eligible for the relevant credit product at the headline rates and terms advertised;
- provided that the information you provided to us is correct and accurate, and
- provided that you pass the lender or credit broker’s own checks.
As part of these checks, some lenders may require you to give your consent to allow access to your financial information via open banking integrations with your bank or building society. A lender may decline a pre-approved application due to ‘responsible lending’ reasons if your financial information indicates that you show signs of vulnerability.
When we say you are ‘card approved’, it means that:
- you are eligible for the relevant credit product but not a specific rate or balance transfer term (e.g. the partner might offer you a different interest rate or balance transfer term to the headline offer);
- provided that the information you provided to us is correct and accurate, and
- provided that you pass the lender or credit broker’s own checks.
In card or loan approved cases, the lender will tell you the interest rate or other repayment terms they can offer you as part of your application process. Again, a ‘card approved’ or ‘loan approved’ offer isn’t guaranteed.
We include notices throughout our website and app to explain what pre-approved means in the context of the particular product.
Energy comparison and switching service
Our energy comparison and switching service is powered by Decision Technologies Limited, a company registered in England & Wales under company number 05341159 with its registered address at First Floor, High Holborn House 52-54 High Holborn London WC1V 6RL (“Decision Tech”).
- provides us with information to help you complete your energy profile (for example, your meter numbers);
- tells us what energy tariffs are available to you, so that we can show you your energy results;
- hosts and processes your application to switch;
- helps us to answer customer queries about our energy comparison and switching service;
- tells us whether your switch was completed.
For more information about Decision Tech’s services, please read their Terms and Conditions.
We sort the energy tariffs we show you based on price, plus any filter you’ve applied. For example, you can choose to filter tariffs so that you only see fixed tariffs or tariffs from the ‘big six’ suppliers. Although we are paid a commission if you switch energy supplier, this commission never influences how your tariffs are ranked.
If you choose to switch energy suppliers, the energy supplier you are switching to will provide you with the terms and conditions for your new energy tariff. The energy supplier will also carry out their own security and credit checks. Any full credit check carried out by an energy supplier (also known as a ‘hard’ search) will be visible on your credit file to all lenders in the future.
Car insurance comparison service
We partner with Seopa Ltd (“Seopa”), trading as Quotezone, to provide you with a car insurance comparison service. Seopa pays us a commission for any insurance policy you take out through Seopa. Seopa in turn receives a commission directly from the insurer that you took out your policy out with.
Seopa is a company registered in Northern Ireland, under registered company number: NI046322. Seopa’s registered address is 5th Floor Link Building, Adelaide Exchange, 24-26 Adelaide Street, Belfast, BT2 8GD. Seopa is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority in respect of insurance mediation activity (FCA FRN: 313860).
When you use our car insurance comparison service, we are acting independently and do not act on behalf of the insurance providers.
Seopa is also acting as an insurance intermediary in its own right, and provides various elements of the service. For example, Seopa:
- gives us an estimated cost of insurance, so that we can show that to you on our website or app;
- hosts and manages the full quote form that you need to complete to get full quotes;
- requests quotes for you from its panel of car insurance providers;
- shows you your quotes;
- gives us details of your quotes, so that we can send you a record of the quotes you received;
- shares information from your quote form and about your application with us (for example, whether your application was successful). See What partners tell us about your application above for more details of how we use that information.
For more information about Seopa’s services, please read their Terms and Conditions.
If you request quotes from Seopa’s panel of insurers, those insurers may run a ‘soft’ search on you, in order to generate quotes. A soft search is like a quick peek at your credit file. Soft searches will not harm your credit rating or affect the way lenders see you. For more information on soft searches, see Soft searches and ‘footprints’ on your credit file below.
If you choose to take out insurance through Seopa, the insurer you are applying to will provide you with the terms and conditions for your new insurance policy. The insurer may also carry out their own security and credit checks. Any full credit check carried out by an insurer (also known as a ‘hard’ search) will be visible on your credit file to all lenders in the future.
It’s your responsibility to ensure that the information you have provided in order to generate your quotes are correct. You’re responsible for answering all questions honestly, completely and to the best of your knowledge, so please double-check your information before submitting it. Failure to do so could invalidate the insurance product that you take out. If your insurance product is invalid, claims may not be paid, and you could be responsible for any third party costs if any event occurs where you would otherwise have been covered by the insurance product.
Before you obtain any insurance product from a provider, you must check all of the information, content, material or data the provider holds about you to ensure it is correct, complete, accurate and not misleading and that you have disclosed all relevant facts. It is important that you read all insurance documents issued to you and ensure that you are aware of the cover, limits and other terms that apply. Failure to comply with the insurer’s terms and conditions could invalidate your policy.
Where you provide information about any other individual (e.g. a named driver) you are confirming that you have their authority to do so.
We do not advise on the suitability of any insurance product and so you should always check the suitability, adequacy and appropriateness of the insurance product that is of interest to you. It is your responsibility to satisfy yourself that you wish to obtain any insurance product before applying for it.
What happens when you apply for a product?
We can’t influence partner decisions about you. If you want to apply for a product, you can do so by following the link from the website or app to the relevant partner’s website.
We don’t control the partner’s website, so we can’t be responsible for any personal data that the partner collects, stores and uses through their website without our involvement. You should always read the privacy notice of each website you visit carefully and before you submit any personal data to the partner.
If you apply, you will then be subject to the relevant partner’s terms, including its privacy notice. The partner will provide you with the terms for that product. The partner will also carry out its own identification and validation checks (including fraud prevention procedures) and credit application checks in accordance with its own criteria. In the case of car finance, your application may also be subject to car checks.
Any full credit check carried out by any partner (also known as a ‘hard search’) will be visible on your credit file to all lenders in the future.
Soft searches and 'footprints' on your credit file
Some of our services involve soft searching your credit file. A soft search is like a quick peek at your credit file. Soft searches will not harm your credit rating or affect the way lenders see you.
TotallyMoney and its partners will soft search you while your account is live, to provide you with updates and personalised information and offers. For example, TotallyMoney and its partners will soft search your credit file with TransUnion and other credit reference agencies:
- to calculate and update your Borrowing Power;
- to create and update your free credit report, if you have one;
- to match you with offers for which you are likely to be eligible; and
- to analyse your financial situation, so that we can find other products and services you may be interested in.
You may see these soft searches as ‘footprints’ on your credit report in either our name or the name of one of the partners or credit reference agencies that we work with. Soft searches on your credit file will be given different markings, depending on their purpose, such as:
- Anti-Money Laundering
- Consumer Credit File Request
- Identity Check
- Quotation/Preliminary Search
You may see multiple footprints on your credit file because soft searches will be carried out:
- when you first sign up for our services;
- when you log in;
- when you go to the offers section of your account;
- when you check or refresh your offers (e.g. when you click on ‘view card’ or ‘find loans’);
- in the background on a monthly basis to refresh your Borrowing Power, credit report and credit score (we reserve the right to suspend these monthly searches if your account is inactive for 12 months or more).
Here are some examples of footprints you might see on your credit file as a result of using our services:
- Avant Credit Of Up Llc
- Avant Credit Of Uk Llc
- Barclaycard (Online) Price Comparison
- Bamboo Limited
- Car Finance 247
- Evolution Funding
- Hitachi Capital (Uk) Plc – Price Comparison - Hdd
- Lendable Limited

- Shawbrook Bank Limited
- Shawbrook Bank Limited Consumer Lending
- Totallymoney Limited
- Totallymoney.com with Capital One
- Vanquis Bank Limited
- Vanquis Hdd Price Comparison
- Zopa Limited
- Zopa Ltd.
If we run a trial with a potential supplier and partner and we need to use real rather than dummy or anonymous data for the test to be effective you may see a footprint relating to that trial on your credit file.
See our Privacy Notice for more details.

Third party content and links
We try to make sure that the content provided by our contracted third-party suppliers is accurate and complete. However, we can’t guarantee that it is completely accurate because some of this information comes from other businesses, which in turn get the information from other sources such as the electoral register, insurance companies or financial institutions. We and our contracted third-party suppliers are not liable for inaccuracies in the data provided to us by third parties.
Please note that we can’t correct information on your credit report. You can challenge incorrect information on your credit report using the “raise a dispute” function in your account. This will allow you to raise the dispute directly with TransUnion, who provide the credit report data.
Links on the website and app to third party websites and resources are provided solely for your information and convenience. By providing the links we don’t approve, endorse or make any representations about any such third-party websites or any material found on them or your use of that material.

Relying on information that we provide
Any information provided to you by us as part of the services is provided for guidance and information only. You should not rely on the information provided as part of services and neither we nor any credit reference agency (including in the case of the credit report service, TransUnion or any member of the TransUnion group of companies) are responsible or liable to you if you rely on it or take any action based upon it.
The fact that you have a good credit score does not mean that a partner will accept your application, and they have their own acceptance criteria and responsible lending policies.
