  • Why is the APR offered by aqua credit cards higher than those for some other credit cards?

    APRs reflect the risk profile of each individual customer. This profile is determined by a variety of factors including information held by the Credit Reference Agencies, which we recommend that customers regularly review.  Our aqua products have been developed for customers who may be new to credit and therefore do not have a well-established credit record or for those who may have had a blip in the past that affected their credit rating.  Accessing credit can be challenging for these customers as they need to establish or improve their credit records.  Our aqua products provide access to credit for these customers so they can enjoy the benefits and flexibility that credit provides, as well as have the chance to improve or establish their credit record.
