What are Packaged Bank Accounts?
These accounts can be called a lot of different names – Gold, Premium, Upgraded, Reward, or similar – but the thing they have in common is that they usually include a range of insurance and non-insurance benefits.
An estimated one in five adults has a packaged account but a report by the financial regulator estimated a third of these account holders fail to use the benefits for which they are paying up to £300 a year for. It also found many were unable to claim when they needed to.
