Five benefits of an overdraft loan

If you’re considering an overdraft but you’re not sure if it’s right for you, here are five benefits to consider.

Linked to your current account, an overdraft facility gives you convenient access of borrowing additional funds, up to your agreed limit, on the same account that you use for your daily transactions.

Available cash

An overdraft gives you immediate access to extra funds when you don’t have any left. Ideal for temporary financial issues, unexpected expenses or emergency costs, an overdraft gives you the comfort of knowing you will always have financial back-up.

You’re in control

When you request an overdraft loan, you agree on a maximum borrowing limit, giving you full control over exactly how much extra you can use every month. And you can easily increase and decrease your spend limit via our Banking App or Internet Banking at any time

Only pay for what you use

You only pay interest on what you use. Your interest rate is linked to the prime interest rate, so, if it drops, you will further benefit.

There are no monthly costs

You can take up to R500 overdraft with no initiation fee, monthly service fee or minimum monthly repayments required. Just make sure you remain within your agreed spend limit and make at least one monthly deposit into your current account, preferably your salary.

Keep yourself covered

Setting up insurance for your overdraft will ensure that you’re covered should you no longer be able to pay your outstanding balance.
