What is Drafty?

Drafty isn't a loan, or an overdraft or a credit card. But it takes some of the best bits from all of them.

Drafty is a line of credit. If you know what that is, great. If you don't… well, that's also great, because we think you'll like it.

A credit line is like a pot of cash that we make available to you. Once you repay it, it's still there to use! You don't have to pay subscription fees or anything like that. You just pay interest on the cash you use until you repay it.

How much does it cost?

It costs 0.18% interest a day. That works out to around £5 per £100 for 28 days. No, that's not a typo. (Find out more)

Representative 89.7% APR

Using Drafty again

Want to borrow cash again? Or borrow more? You can use as much as you want within the agreed limit. After receiving your consent, we do revise those limits every now and then, so you may be able to use more in the future, depending on your account behaviour and affordability checks.

Is Drafty an Overdraft?

An overdraft is run by a bank and part of your bank account. A Drafty credit line isn't, so it's not an overdraft.

Drafty's not part of your bank account, so it's not an overdraft. But if you're short of cash and you need a little more to get by, you might find it's cheaper than some overdrafts. If you've got an overdraft and you're going over your limit, you definitely might find Drafty a cheaper alternative to an unarranged overdraft.

Is Drafty a loan?

Nope! Loans have to be paid back within an agreed period, and then it's over.

With Drafty, if you pay the cash you borrow back, it's still there for you to use again!
