    Iíve since been able to get a 500 limit with MBNA with an ok interest rate

    And now a lloyds credit cards with a £3000 limit and a low interest rate,

    Should I cllose the Vanquis card now. All have been managed perfectlyv

    Why not use the Lloyds card.

    Use the vanquis for a weekly shop for example.

    As long as you have all your cards set up to pay off the balance in full every month by direct debit then I would use all of your cards at least a little each month to build a good history of credit management.
