Be prepared for unplanned expenses with an overdraft facility from HSBC. An overdraft is an advance of an amount up to an agreed limit.
With an overdraft facility, you have the flexibility to have access to emergency funds in difficult times, you pay lower interest rate compared to unauthorised overdraft where a penalty is charged and interest is charged only on the utilised portion of the overdraft facility.
Keeping within your limit is a cost-effective way to manage your account and access additional funds in unplanned situations
