A Planned Overdraft allows you to borrow up to an agreed limit when there is no money left in your account. It’s perfect for short-term borrowing, such as covering you until payday.*
This is an overdraft limit based on your personal circumstances and agreed with us in advance.
Fees and charges
If you use a Planned Overdraft of more than £10 at any time during your monthly billing period, you will be charged a Monthly Overdraft Usage Fee of £6. You’ll only pay this fee once in a monthly billing period, no matter how many times you go overdrawn in that month.
When you borrow using an overdraft, we will also charge you interest. If you have an interest and fee-free overdraft as part of your account you won’t have to pay the £6 Monthly Overdraft Usage Fee or interest as long as you stay within this limit or exceed it by £10 or less.
Duration of overdraft
Your Planned Overdraft will continue indefinitely unless we specify an end date or you ask to end it. We will carry out a review of your Planned Overdraft at least once every 12 months.
Applying for a Planned Overdraft
If you use a Planned overdraft limit of £1,200 on our Classic Account the overdraft interest rate we will charge on the first £25 will be 0% EAR variable and a Monthly Overdraft Usage Fee will not apply. The overdraft interest rate on the next £1,175 will be 19.94% EAR* variable and a Monthly Overdraft Usage Fee of £6 will apply
EAR is the Equivalent Annual Rate. This is the actual annual rate of an overdraft. It doesn't take into account other fees and charges.
If you try to make a payment when you don’t have enough money in your account, we will treat this as a request for an Unplanned Overdraft. If we agree, we’ll provide you with an Unplanned Overdraft (or extend your existing one) to cover the payment.
Fees and charges
If your Unplanned Overdraft is more than £10, you will be charged a Monthly Overdraft Usage Fee of £6. You’ll only pay this fee once in a monthly billing period, no matter how many times you go overdrawn in that month or if you use both a Planned and Unplanned Overdraft.
You will also have to pay daily fees and interest on the amount of overdraft you’re using. If we don't agree to give you an Unplanned Overdraft, you won't be able to make the payment and you may be charged a fee.
