    HSBC for example offer £3,000 but I doubt many people get that. Where are you mmost likely going to get the higher amounts?

    Any particular bank to avoid?

    Thank you. Do you know if the 1.5k is a common overdraft to be given or not?

    Which bank is that? I might go into a few and ask whether they can give an estimate to the overdraft they can give me.

    lloyds bank, they may ask to run a credit check to be able to tell you but there's no harm in asking.

    Nope no credit accounts, I used it (and still have it) but I never went more than 1.5k into it because i hate being in debt. The reason they gave me so much was they looked at my families circumstances and because i get the minimum loan they increased my overdraft so it's there in case i need it.
