    Of course. Do you know how an overdraft works? :holmes: Though you may get charged if the overdraft isn't interest-free. :pierre:

    What do you mean the "actual amount"?
    If, for example, you have £100 above zero and want to remove £200, then yes, you can do that.

    Presumably you know whether you have an interest-free overdraft/whether there will bank charges for doing so.

    If you have a £2000 overdraft you can go to -£2000.

    So if you have £40 and you took out £70 your new balance would be -£30.

    If you cant do it you might not have an overdraft or it might not be sorted yet.. if your a student with a student account there is usually no interest (Im with Natwest and i know there is not) but you want to check otherwise it will cost.

    Say you have £200 in your account, you can take out £2200.
