Overdrafts depend on your circumstances and you must repay an overdraft when we ask in line with our General Terms and Conditions. Acceptance isn’t guaranteed. Accounts which don’t offer an overdraft aren’t included in the calculator.
We offer current accounts with different overdraft interest rates or without the option for an overdraft facility. We also have different borrowing options such as credit cards, personal loans and additional loans for our existing mortgage customers. You can learn more by visiting our borrowing options page.
