About arranged overdrafts
An arranged overdraft is an overdraft that has been agreed with us in advance. It can be used as a short-term safety net for unexpected bills or payments. You'll only pay interest on your arranged overdraft balance if you use it.

About unarranged overdrafts
If you go overdrawn or exceed your arranged overdraft, this is known as an unarranged overdraft. This means that it hasn't been agreed with us in advance.
If you don't have enough money in your current account to make a payment, we may let you borrow through an unarranged overdraft or refuse to make the payment. Bear in mind that missing payments and using an unarranged overdraft can damage your credit score, so please call us as we may be able to help.
All overdrafts are subject to our assessment of your circumstances and are repayable in full on demand. You must be aged 18 or over to apply.
If you're looking to borrow money, it is important you compare and choose the right options for you based on your circumstances.
