You can also add Online Services to make checking your statement simple.

  • Arrange an electronic payment from your bank or building society account or set up a standing order to make regular deposits
  • Pop a cheque in the post
  • Transfer money from another Coventry account


  • Withdraw cash in branch or with your CashLink card at thousands of cash machines displaying the LINK, VISA or PLUS symbol (max £100 per day)
  • Call us to arrange an electronic withdrawal to your nominated account
  • Ask for a cheque in branch or write to us and we'll send one by return post


  • Interest is paid monthly on the last day of each month
