What to do if your branch is closing

For most of us it probably means very little. When did you actually last need to use a branch? If you aren’t at all fussed about losing access to a branch’s facilities you don’t have to do anything (though more in a moment about why you could). And if you need to just pay in or withdraw cash then you’ll be able to use a Post Office.

But for those who do regularly visit a branch for more than this (or don’t have a Post Office nearby) it could make a huge difference.

The obvious solution is to open up a new account at a bank that does have a local branch near you. You don’t have to switch to this new bank (which would mean the closure of your Natwest or RBS account) if you don’t want to, but doing so does have some advantages.

All your Direct Debits, standing orders and payments into your account will be moved over for you, so you won’t need to change anything manually. And right now you could get a switching bonus of up to £200.

But if you do switch you’ll lose access to benefits you get with these banks. The main perks are:

  • Natest or RBS Reward Account – £3 a month profit (two lots of £2 if you have two Direct Debits, £1 for checking the app minus a £2 monthly fee) (account review)
  • Digital Regular Saver – 6.17% AER savings on a total balance of up to £5,000 (capped at £150 a month deposit) (account review)
  • Fee-free use of the Natwest / RBS Reward Credit Card (if you are accepted)

Unless you’re getting a decent switching bonus, I’d keep hold of the Reward account if you have it, just to keep the free cash. Instead I’d open up a new account without switching for whichever alternative bank you have nearby (here’s a full list of the different perks they offer).

And even if you aren’t bothered about your local branch closing, I’d still open another locally. I think it’s always handy to have physical access to a bank. You never quite know what will happen with online and app banking, and having the option to talk to someone can make things easier.

One thought on “98 NatWest, RBS & Ulster branch closures set for 2024

  1. As we hardly visit a local bank these days (though I still go about twice a month) hence it’s no surprise they’re closing them down in instalments. Technology has gotten itself in a haste that we need to adapt somehow.

    My concern is mainly for the elderly who still need physical bank access, and it gets them out of their homes as exercise; and all those in the countryside as well.
