Near-Prime Credit Cards: Estimated using an indicative APR of 39.9%. The cost has been calculated by applying the equivalent monthly interest rate to the outstanding monthly balances.
Arranged Overdraft: In the case of Barclays, Lloyds and Santander, the cost has been estimated by using the fee structure used by the banks. For HSBC and RBS, the cost has been calculated by applying the equivalent monthly interest rate to the outstanding monthly balances.
