>>Also, I would think American Express etc would be able to check your UK credit history, as they are an international company. (aren't they?)

I had a friend who was in exactly this position, and even Amex wouldn't do an international credit check.

I got him a card on my Amex account, and within 3 months he had his own card, and a flood of other offers.

You'd have to find someone who *really* trusts you to go this route, though.
