Vanquis Bank Credit Cards

Aquis Bank was formed in 2002, but after just 2 months the Vanquis Bank identity was taken on and they would later issue their first card in May 2003. Step forward to today and they have now accepted 4 million applications maintaining an active user base of around 1.7 million. The core brand is in focus, but there are others noting Aquis, Chrome and Origin. Both Neo and Original have closed. Past affinity partnerships have also ceased noting Argos (now with NewDay) and Granite. This Visa card (Classic) is pitched at 39.9% (variable to 69.9%) and carries a starting limit ranging between £150 and £1000, potentially leading to £4000.

Limits are reviewed every 5 months. Various info and verification is required to access the EVanquis login at www.evanquis.com and so their app is more ideal to use. This lender is perhaps the best chance of approval with very poor credit. If your score is decent enough then it would be worth applying at Chrome where they pitch a competitive 29.5%. One key reason to trust this provider is that they are controlled by the most experienced player in subprime lending – Provident’s roots head back to 1880. They have clearly lost market share in recent years. This is more so to do with the rise of NewDay (known for Aqua).
