In 2001, we were persuaded to take out some ISA's despite the fact that they were running at a higher rate than ever before. When I questioned that, they informed me that in their opinion, the rise would continue for some time. Of course the value dropped & by 2004 we had lost half of our investment.
In 2007, we found out that Lloyds had been trying to take a PPI payment for a credit card that was paid off & cancelled out of our account for three years. As we were not in the UK, we were not aware of this & there was no money in the account. It took us over 6 months for them to reluctantly admit their error & as a result of their incompetence, it cost us around £60,000 because of the jump in property prices.
Some years later they hiked up the rate of interest on my credit card because I had only been paying minimum payments telling me that 'It would help my finances'! How does charging me more help my finances?
In September 2018, I cancelled a standing order online. It didn't get cancelled & three payments of £500 have been sent to a recipient. They deny that I cancelled the Standing Order & stated that their system is infallible & errors don't happen.
Don't use Lloyds bank....

Irritating app

Th eapp is quite good but does not match up with website. So we constantly get reminders for us to read statements that we have read and also reminders that we have not been online to check stuff even if we do it daily on the app. IRRITATING!

This account gives an added piece of mind by having your phone, break down and travel insurance all in one place. To be clear though there is a monthly fee. Lloyds were so helpful when I needed to go on holiday and discovered I was pregnant just before flying. They swapped my travel insurance to family insurance and ensured we knew everything we needed to before we left. I would recommend Lloyds to everyone who needed these items.

A catalogue of ridiculous mistakes since joining them two months ago, each mistake unable to be fixed properly without numerous complaints raised on my side. Call handlers don't possess the basic skills to perform their job properly and this resulted in my card being cancelled and me being unable to gain access to my money. Compensated each time but this is purely to close down the fault and prevent you speaking to the Ombudsman, mistakes keep occurring which is unacceptable and the simplest of tasks seem beyond staffs capability. 1. No overdraft added to account upon opening one despite one being arranged and authorized at time of application. No card sent on time and several never even turned up. Cards came with incorrect names and title. Card cancelled in error by call handler. Card sent with no pin. Card re sent with no contactless facility. All basic stuff yet they fail every time, don't bank with this bunch of cowboys!

Great value and benefits for a joint account

My husband and I pay £17 a month for Lloyds Platinum on our joint account, which I think is great value with the included mobile phone and travel insurance. I've had to claim several times with great customer service.

Long Time user, only so-so

Have taken advantage of phone insurance and travel insurance when bag stolen on holiday, very swift and quick to claim. also peace of mind with car assistance, but not used. Else day to day dealings are good.
