About MoneyBack

What Is A Packaged Bank Account?

These types of accounts are also known as ‘premium’ accounts.  They are current accounts where you pay a monthly fee in return for a variety of insurances which usually include mobile phones, travel, and car breakdown.  They also entitle you to preferential rates on overdrafts, loans and other financial products.

It is estimated that one in five adults have an expensive packaged account which can cost up to £25 per month.  However, a report by the financial regulator estimated a third of these account holders have not used the benefits and many were unable to claim when they needed to.  For example, pensioners are not covered by the travel insurance policy because of their age and/or medical conditions, and householders without a car have been paying for a useless breakdown policy.*

How Have The Packaged Bank Accounts Been Mis-sold

  • In many cases customers took these accounts without realising they would not be able to use them due to hidden catches in the terms and conditions. 
  • Many branch staff were paid incentives to sell these accounts and did not take customers’ needs into consideration. 
  • The accounts were not properly explained and bank staff did not check whether the customer qualified for the benefits. 
  • Customers were often led to believe there was no alternative “free” account or were upgraded without their knowledge or consent. 
  • Some customers felt they were misled into thinking they had to take the account in order to get a loan, credit card or overdraft agreed. 
  • Others have found out later to their cost that they were required to ‘register’ products (such as mobile phones) for them to be covered by the insurance – this was overlooked when they were sold the account. 
  • Some customers even asked to downgrade the account and were told they could not.
