Barclays Bank current account customers have been made aware of some changes to the bank accounts, including an overdraft service and some new accounts.
The new overdraft service is called Personal Reserve and replaces the existing unauthorised overdraft facility. An annual fee of GBP22 provides access to an additional overdraft for up to five days. This can be used as a safety net for Barclays Bank customers who go over their normal limit, protecting them from additional bank charges.
In addition five new Barclays current accounts have been introduced, offering alternatives from free in credit accounts to annual fee accounts with extra services and interest free overdraft options. The choice provided for the customer is growing explained a Barclays spokesman.
