Barclays current accounts

Barclays is one of the best-known names in banking. It offers several current accounts, ranging from straightforward accounts with no monthly fee, to packaged accounts which come with added extras in return for a monthly charge, and premier banking services for high earners. Many of these accounts offer overdrafts if you go into the red regularly, with the packaged and premier accounts offering interest-free overdrafts up to various limits.
