Fees and charges

  • An annual fee of £500 for maintaining the account is payable from the date your account is opened. We will deduct the first year’s fee 30 days after the account opening date and we will deduct the fee automatically every twelve months after that. If you or we close the account after you have paid the fee, we will repay you the proportion of the fee representing the number of full months remaining for that year.
  • You can use your card to spend money that you have in your Voyage account. If a payment causes you to go into an arranged overdraft, we will charge you interest on this at the rate of 5% per annum (variable) above the Bank of England base rate (as that rate varies from time to time). If a payment causes you to go into an unarranged overdraft, we will charge you interest on this at the rate of 5% per annum (variable) above the Bank of England base rate (as that rate varies from time to time). The Bank of England base rate is available
  • Representative rate – based on an arranged overdraft of £1,200, the interest rate you will be charged is 0.87% EAR** (variable). This gives a representative rate  of 771.04% APR*** (variable).
