Change your arranged overdraft limit

Support with Coronavirus

There are two ways we're helping customers who use an overdraft during the Coronavirus pandemic

Overdraft interest staying at current rates

From Monday 30th March until 14th July, all of our Personal Banking customers using their overdraft will pay less as we’re keeping overdraft interest at their current rates. 

Most customers will pay Representative 19.89% APR (variable) for that period, rather than our standard rate of Representative 39.49% APR (variable). Black and Reward Black customers will remain at Representative 14.89% APR (variable), rather than moving to Representative 19.49% APR (variable). Please note, this isn’t a change to your overdraft terms & conditions.

There also won’t be any other fees or charges in addition to the above interest rates. 

To find out more about our Overdraft charges after 14th July, please use our cost calculator.

Request £500 interest-free on your existing overdraft

You can request £500 interest-free on your existing arranged overdraft (or up to your existing arranged overdraft limit if lower than £500).  

This is a temporary measure and will be interest-free from application date for three months. Check out our helpful FAQs for more details.

Please remember that after the three months ends, we will start to charge interest on the full balance. 

Changing your overdraft limit won’t take long

If you’ve got an arranged overdraft limit on your account that you feel is too low or too high, we’ll show you how to change it.

Things to keep in mind

If you reduce your overdraft too much, you might go into Unarranged Overdraft. Here’s an example of Unarranged Overdraft costs.
You could also use out handy Cost calculator to see how much an arranged or unarranged overdraft would cost based on your circumstances.
