£250 of your overdraft interest-free

Need a little breathing space at the end of the month? We can help.

  • an offer of at least a £500 formal overdraft (subject to status)
  • no overdraft interest charges on the first £250 of your formal overdraft
  • we will send you text alerts to stop you going over your limit and being charged.

Overdraft charges representative example:

0% EAR variable on the first £250. 15.9% EAR variable on anything above £250

We may charge you a fee for going overdrawn by more than arranged, but if you sign up for text alerts we'll give you a chance to get back into your limit before we charge you.

Visit our charges page for more information about overdraft fees. If your account is linked to an Offset Mortgage, interest on your overdraft balance will be charged at your mortgage rate.
