As the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) is felt across the UK, customers have been contacting AXA and Lloyds Bank to understand how their travel insurance is impacted. Since the World Health Organisation (WHO) announced that the coronavirus outbreak is a pandemic, this is now a ‘known event’. This means that if you book any travel or holiday after 18 March 2020, your policy will not cover cancellation and early returns related to coronavirus.
AXA will continue to cover medical costs if you become ill in a country or region the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) hasn’t advised against visiting.
Arranged overdraft - An arranged overdraft can act as a short term safety net. You can use it to borrow money up to an agreed limit through your bank account.
- Setting up an arranged overdraft is free and you’ll only pay daily arranged overdraft interest if you use it.
- If you use your arranged overdraft but pay it back before the end of the day, then you won’t pay any arranged overdraft interest for that day.
- Applying for an arranged overdraft - When you have applied for this account, at the end of the application you can apply for an arranged overdraft which you can add right away. You can also apply for one later. All overdrafts are subject to application and repayable on demand. You must be 18 or over to apply.
- Amending an arranged overdraft - You can reduce or remove your arranged overdraft at any time through Mobile Banking, Internet Banking or Telephone Banking or by visiting your branch. But you must repay anything you owe if you want to remove an arranged overdraft or anything over the new reduced limit you want. You can also apply to increase it. This application won't affect your credit score.
- Helpful tools - You can use our eligibility checker and cost calculator to check your eligibility and calculate the cost of an arranged overdraft.
- Unarranged overdraft - If you don't have enough money in your account or available arranged overdraft to make a payment, we may either let you borrow through an unarranged overdraft or refuse to make the payment. Missing payments and using an unarranged overdraft can damage your credit score, please get in touch with us as we may be able to help you.
