Representative example
So, if you use a planned overdraft of £1,200, the interest rate we charge will be 0% EAR variable.

*Sterling travellers cheques ordered in branch will be charged at 1.5%, £3 minimum.

The amount of overdraft you get depends on your circumstances and whether you make regular payments into your account. You’ll also need to be over 18 and live in the UK. Halifax bank accounts and services are subject to status. Overdrafts are repayable on demand. EAR is the equivalent annual rate. This is the actual annual interest rate of an overdraft. It doesn’t take into account fees and charges.
