Are you eligible for an arranged overdraft with us?

What is an overdraft?

Overdrafts are a way to borrow money through your current account, and best used to cover short-term or unexpected payments. There are two types of overdraft: arranged and unarranged. 

An arranged overdraft is one that you apply for, and lets you borrow up to an agreed limit. 

To find out more about our Current Account and overdraft, including fees and charges, please see more information here.
