Implications for the sector
Current Account providers: Provide more information on overdraft offerings. Let potential customers know that you they are able to switch when in their overdraft.
Web comparison websites: Make it more visible for customers looking to switch, that the overdraft is not a barrier.
CASS: Promote greater awareness of the service and how easy it is to switch with an overdraft.
