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.

You can see full details about your overdraft and get an estimate of the costs of using this with our overdraft calculator.

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.

This is a simple everyday way to save for the things you want. Add Save the Pennies on to your account and every debit card payment you make is rounded up to the nearest pound. All those spare pennies go straight into your Savings Pot or any other eligible TSB savings account you’ve set up. So even when you’re spending, you’re putting a little bit aside too.

You can set this up easily on our mobile app, Internet Banking or in branch.

On 14 April we launched our Fraud Refund Guarantee. This is a first in UK banking. And it goes further to cover TSB customers against fraud than anything that has come before it. Put simply, it means that if you’re clearly an innocent victim of fraud on your TSB account, we will refund the money you lost from your account.

Valid from 14/04/2019. No refund if customers are involved in committing the fraud or repeatedly ignore account safety advice. Guarantee limited to £1 million per claim for authorised transactions. Conditions apply.

There may be lots of different reasons you might need to bank with us differently, either in the short term, or on a continuing basis. It could be because of your physical or mental wellbeing, or because of a life event you’ve experienced. Whatever the reason, we are committed to tailoring our support to your personal needs.

If you choose to tell us about your individual support needs, we will take the time to understand your circumstances and work with you to make sure you have the support you need when banking with TSB. We can add a Support Indicator to your account, which means whenever you talk to us, we'll be aware that you may need tailored support.

Account Opening is subject to our assessment of your circumstances.  You must be 18 or over and a UK resident to apply.
Overdrafts are subject to application and approval and are repayable on demand.
