Approval for any credit card depends on your status. The representative APRs shown represent the interest rate offered to most successful applicants. Depending on your personal circumstances, the APR you're offered may be higher, or you may not be offered credit at all. Fees and rates are subject to change without notice. It's always wise to check the terms of any deal before you borrow. Most of the data in Finder's comparison tables is provided by Moneyfacts.

Can I use a NatWest credit card abroad?

Yes. NatWest credit cards are all Mastercards so acceptance won’t be an issue. Bear in mind that with some NatWest cards (but not all), you’ll be charged a currency conversion fee for non-sterling transactions. You can click on one of the cards in the table above to see its fee structure.

If you already have a NatWest card, you can let the bank know you’re heading overseas by logging in, choosing “Manage my card”, then “Going abroad” and finally “Add Trip”. You’ll then be prompted to outline where and when you’re travelling.

What is an APR?

This annual percentage rate (APR) is a standardised figure providing an annual summary of the cost of borrowing. It takes into account both interest and any mandatory charges to be paid, so if a card comes with an annual fee attached, its APR will be higher than its interest rate.

Bear in mind that most card issuers tailor interest rates to the perceived risk profile of the applicant. That’s why you’ll often see a representative APR advertised. This is the APR that a card issuer gives to at least 51% of cardholders. If you have good credit, you’ll stand a better chance of being offered the advertised representative APR.

Can I check my eligibility without affecting my credit score?

Yes. Like most card issuers, NatWest offers a “soft search” facility. This checks your credit file to let you know whether or not it’s worth applying, without any impact on your credit score. If it’s good news and you decide to actually apply, then there will be a “hard search” of your credit file at that point, which has a slight negative impact on your score.

Cost of living support

NatWest are currently waiving late/missed payment fees, overlimit fees and returned payment fees to support customers through the cost of living. Fees will be waived until the end of 2023. However, it’s still important to keep payments on time and stay within your credit limit, or you risk harming your credit score. Learn more about how missed card payments can affect your credit score.

How to apply for a NatWest credit card

The easiest way to apply for a NatWest credit card is online. NatWest provides an online eligibility checker to help you quickly see if you’re likely to get a credit card without impacting your credit score.

Eligibility requirements

To have your application for a credit card considered, you must meet the following criteria:

  • You’re a UK resident
  • You’re aged 18 or over
  • You’ve had a permanent UK address for 3 years or more
  • You have a good credit rating/history (this is less applicable for student accounts)

Why might you not be approved?

NatWest is unlikely to approve you for a credit card if you’ve got a history of bad debt or if NatWest decides your income/expenditure makes the card unaffordable.

If you’ve got an outstanding county court judgement (CCJ) or are on an individual voluntary arrangement (IVA) it is also likely you will not be approved.

Equally, if you do not have a credit record at all, you may be turned down. It is advisable to go to Experian or another credit rating agency to ask for a credit report.

We show offers we can track - that's not every product on the market...yet. Unless we've said otherwise, products are in no particular order.
