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.*
