  • Optional £35 interest and fee-free overdraft - for short term borrowing, like covering you until pay day. Subject to application, approval and repayable on demand.
  • You can apply to open a joint account.

£10 overdraft buffer
If you try to make a payment and you don’t have enough money in your account (including your Planned Overdraft if you have one), we’ll treat this as a request for an Unplanned Overdraft. If it’s authorised and you use £10 or less, you won’t be charged fees or interest on the amount you’ve borrowed. If you use more than £10 you’ll get charged interest and fees on the full amount.

About overdrafts

Control 
Helps you avoid overdraft fees and keep a limit on your spending.

For £10 a month, stop your account from going into an Unplanned Overdraft.

Grace period
You'll have until 10pm (UK time) to pay in enough money to avoid any overdraft fees you may incur on that day.
