iDraft – a viable alternative to a bank account with an overdraft facility.

Find out how iDraft can help you get back in control of your monthly finances, without penalising you for using this alternative overdraft facility.

The icount version of an overdraft – cardholders can apply for an £250 arranged iDraft. 

The iDraft facility is offered as standard with the icount Prepaid Mastercard account.

iDraft advantages:

  • Increased flexibility when it comes to the end of the month (and your funds are a little bit lower than you anticipated)
  • No penalties or charges for using the alternative overdraft from icount
  • A way to improve your credit score, through regular iDraft repayments

How does the icount iDraft facility work?

i-draft is what’s commonly known as ‘arranged overdraft facility’ which means that you have an agreement with us that the £250 is there when you need it the most. Whether it’s an unexpected bill or car repair, iDraft is there for you to use.

To use iDraft costs just 75p per day. You will not be charged more than £10 per month.

How is iDraft different from a regular high street bank overdraft?

Many banks offering an overdraft or credit facility reserve the right to charge their customers for using this service, which is known as an ‘unarranged overdraft’.

Not with icount. The iDraft facility will never cost you more than £10 per month.
