AIB Student Interest Free Overdraft

An Interest Free Overdraft gives you an extra balance on your current account that you can use temporarily. First and second year students can apply for an overdraft of up to €1,000 interest free, and third and fourth year students can apply for an overdraft of up to €1,500 interest free. This gives you additional funds that you can use if and when you need them for those unexpected costs during your student years.

    • We will charge our Standard Variable 'A' rate for Personal Overdrafts for any overdrafts we agree to over €1,500.

    • For overdraft facilities above €600 we may need a parental/guardian guarantee.
