Your TSB Visa debit card is an amazing piece of plastic. Accepted in millions of places and cash machines worldwide, it's incredibly convenient. It's just as safe to use abroad as at home, so it's a simple alternative to carrying cash.

More about the Visa debit card

An interest-free Arranged Overdraft of up to £2,000 in your first three years after graduation.

Overdrafts are subject to application and approval and are repayable on demand.

 

If your account goes over its limit, our Grace Period means that you have until 10pm (UK Time) to pay in enough money to avoid any Overdraft interest you may incur that day.

Every time you use your TSB Visa debit card we'll round up the amount you spent to the nearest pound and transfer the difference from your current account into an eligible TSB savings account.
