A Vanquis credit card is an example of what's sometimes called a 'credit builder' card. They're aimed at providing credit for people with bad credit history, so they come with a higher interest rate and APR than most regular credit cards.
If you're successful when you apply for a Vanquis card, you'll receive it within two weeks and you can then use it in the same way as any other credit card.
But it's not the only option out there. We've got something we think you might like even more. It's also faster.
Drafty is a way to access cash that you can borrow any time you wish. It's a credit line of up to £3,000 for new customers(rather than Vanquis's £1,000). If you're approved, you just use your Drafty account to add funds to your bank account. Once you've paid it back, the cash is there for you to draw again, whenever you want.
Approval usually takes just minutes and whenever you want to draw cash, it goes through to your account within minutes. And once you're approved, you don't need to worry about further credit checks any time you want to draw cash from your credit line.
Oh, and did we mention? It's fee-free. So that means no Vanquis-style £12 late-fee charges if you don't pay on time. We won't do that. At all.
There's more, too. If you want to just wander down to the 'apply' button, go for it, but if you have a minute check out this table to see other reasons you might like us.
