Join the crew, Sarah. highfive I opted against January re-sits because the exams are usually much harder than the summer ones and it's non-stop revision for an extra 2 months. I passionately hate revision, normal school is fine. Frown

I applied for a Nationwide Flex account on Saturday for when I go to Rome in a couple of weeks [no charges abroad] and I just found out my credit check failed. WHAT UTTER BULLSH*T!

I have never had to take out a bank loan, I have never even been overdrawn, there has always been money in my accuont and I have a salary. I've never failed to pay for anything apart from some Dutch hosting company when they caused massive downtime so I quit before the contract ended. Would something I did with a Dutch company be on my credit check?

So anyway, I just registered for a credit check report, I'm looking forward to seeing what has caused me to fail. I bet it's something really stupid like a billing error by Virgin Media or BT.

I actually have some experience with Nationwide, (I and a lot of my friends use it), and I know they are one of the most stringent banks/building societies when it comes to credit checks.
Do you use a credit card?

Cate had a deadline to spend money that her company gave her and she was only allowed to spend it on a holiday, weird I know.

No, I plan to never use a credit card - I don't like the idea of paying money that isn't mine and then paying it back like a bill.

Do you and your friends have a Nationwide account for the same reason I wanted one?

Yes, we do.
Anyway, I think that's your problem, that you've never used a credit card before. One of the biggest things working towards your credit rating is your credit card use. Now, although not using a credit card isn't a minus, you don't get the major plus of using a credit card regularly, and paying it off properly. It was one thing we noticed, that some of us had far better records and earnings then others but still couldn't get an account, and it looked like that was the reason.

I don't think there is any other bank which doesn't charge for using the account abroad, but there are some credit cards - like from Abbey or the Post Office credit card, which don't charge for use abroad. However, their credit checks are also very stringent. I know you don't want to use credit cards, but if you know your budget, you could just use it for this trip, and then throw it out (you can even put money into the credit card account before you spend it, so you'll never actually be in debt). Of course this is assuming you want to spend money shopping, and don't need to withdraw cash, since withdrawing cash on a credit card does get you charged.
