Credit enquiries aren't going to stop you from getting a loan or credit card.
Banks have policies in place to mitigate adverse credit findings. You will most likely just need to explain why you have so many and whether you went ahead with them or not. They may also ask for proof that you didn't proceed.
Different banks have different policies, some only look at the past 6 months, some look longer.
I wouldn't stress too much. Also, be mindful that doing unnecessary credit checks could also put a credit enquiry on your history. I'm not 100% on that, but I recall reading it in a finance magazine.
