What’s the deal?

You customise your account with a range of ‘packs’ that cover your gadgets, home appliances and any trips abroad that you might make. For example, the Travel Pack provides RAC Breakdown Cover in the UK as well as Worldwide Family Travel Insurance. There’s also a Travel Plus pack which provides RAC Breakdown Cover in the UK and Europe, Worldwide Family Travel Insurance and airport lounge access, and a Tech Pack, which offers cover for your mobile and other gadgets. You can also get a Home Pack which provides satellite and TV cover and extended warranty cover among other things. In addition to the packs, you can add individual features such as text alerts, online statements and a personalised debit card.

Any catches?

If you want to buy two packs, then costs can start mounting up, which means you may be better off opting for an alternative packaged account that includes a range of monthly benefits in return for one monthly fee.

What’s the verdict?

This account is well worth a look for customers who prefer to take a DIY approach to banking and decide exactly what they do and don’t want to pay for.
