Your account is changing
There’s no monthly fee for your new account and it gives you access to a range of Premier services – plus you can add Packs of benefits to suit your needs.
What your new account offers
When your account changes to a Premier Current Account, your sort code and account number stay the same and gives you access to the following features:
- Fee-free overdraft – if you already have an overdraft, the first £1,000 will be fee-free. If you don’t have an overdraft, you can apply for one by speaking to a member of your Premier team.
Representative example: Fee-free overdraft up to £1,000 (subject to application and status) while you stay within that limit. If you use an overdraft of £1,200, you'll be charged £1.50 a day when you use it. For more information, please see the ‘overdraft charges and information’ section below
- Up to £1,000 daily cash machine withdrawals – an exclusive black debit card. Subject to status

Questions and answers
What isn’t changing?
Your sort code, account number and any Direct Debits or standing orders won’t change. Your overdraft limit, if you have one will also remain the same, however when your account changes to a Premier Current Account, your first £1,000 will become fee-free. If you’ve joined Barclays Blue Rewards, you’ll continue to receive your monthly payments from us.
Your account will become a Premier Current Account with Tech Pack and Travel Pack. There are some changes to the features you get with your account, including the price you pay. If you have an arranged overdraft, although your limit won't change, however the fee-free portion of your overdraft will now be £1,000.
