To apply for this current account
Go to the NatWest website
If you are looking for a current account which comes with additional benefits, and has low monthly fees, NatWest’s Reward Silver account could be worth considering.
What’s the deal?
This account has a monthly fee of £12. In return for the fee, account holders get European Travel Insurance, mobile phone insurance, a free tastecard and a ticket booking service with 25% cashback on tickets for theatre, dance, opera, concerts and more.
The account comes with a £10 interest-free overdraft. There is an arranged overdraft usage fee of £6 per month, charged each time you use your arranged overdraft by more than £10.
Any agreed overdrafts are charged at an effective annual rate of interest (EAR) of 19.89%. There is a fee of £6 a day for unarranged overdrafts greater than £10 and another £6 fee for each returned item.
If you regularly travel outside Europe, the travel insurance won’t cover you, so you will need to take out separate worldwide cover. Overdraft charges are relatively steep too, so this account may not be the best option for anyone who spends most of their time in the red.
What’s the verdict?
This account is a good option for anyone looking for a packaged account which has a low monthly fee and which offers some extras that are a bit different from the norm.
