Things to consider about this product
This overdraft facility is linked to your Bank of Melbourne transaction account, meaning you will need to have one of these accounts in order to take advantage of this offering. If you don't have one of these accounts, you can easily apply for one as part of your overdraft application. This facility is available with a Complete Freedom Account.
This overdraft is an unsecured, variable account. This means that while you don't have to attach any asset in order to secure this line of credit, the rate of interest is set to change. The benefit of an overdraft is that you won't pay interest unless you use the funds in the overdraft facility. You should also keep in mind that while there is no establishment fee for this facility, you will have to pay a monthly fee of $5.
