If you’ve never had a credit card in the UK before, you may find it hard to get one from the banks. That’s because you haven’t got a ‘credit history’ – a record of how you’ve got on with credit previously.Apply now
With aqua start you can begin building a good credit history, by keeping to your credit limit and making your repayments on time.
Why not apply? Unlike some, we look for reasons to say “yes” rather than “no”.

|Interest Charging Information|
You will not pay interest on new purchases if you pay your balance in full and on time. Otherwise, the period over which interest is charged is as follows:
|Purchases||Date debited to your account||Paid in full|
|Cash Advances||Date debited to your account||Paid in full|
|Balance Transfers||Date debited to your account||Paid in full|
|Allocation Of Payments|
If you do not pay off your balance in full we will allocate your payments to balances with the highest interest rate before balances with lower interest rates. Please see Condition 2.2 of your credit card terms and conditions for further details.
Each month in which you have a balance outstanding on your account you must repay an amount equal to the total of any interest, default sums plus 1% of the balance shown on your statement (minimum £5.00, or the full balance if less than £5.00) plus the amount of any arrears, which are repayable immediately. Any over limit amount is also repayable immediately.

Interest Explained - based on the representative APR for purchases as indicated above
We would not recommend paying only the minimum payment. Only making the minimum payment maximises the interest you will pay and length of time it will take to clear your balance, as highlighted in the example below.
|Illustrative example||For a purchase of £300 on your credit card...|
|Monthly Payment||Minimum Payment each month||£50 each month|
|Taking into account any introductory rates, how much interest will you be charged in the first year||£119.00||£47.00|
|How much interest will you be charged in the second year?||£105.00||0.00|
|How long would it take to clear the balance?||11 years, 5 months||8 months|
The above example assumes the following: The transaction takes place on 1st January and you make no further transactions. You always make the payment each month on the 15th. Your statement is produced 31 days after you make the purchase.
