What if I need emergency cash but don't have an overdraft or have reached my overdraft limit?

We don't offer unarranged overdraft facilities on the current account. Overdrafts are designed for short term borrowing.  We can offer an overdraft facility where there is a specific purpose to cover unexpected expenses, for an agreed timeframe up to a maximum of 6 months. We don’t offer overdrafts to be used as a buffer in case of need. Eligibility criteria applies, with minimum 3 months' salary required to be paid into the account. We do this to ensure we only lend what people can afford to safely borrow.  If you need to apply for an overdraft or to increase your limit please call us on 0330 355 0355. Our opening hours are published on our help and support page
