Bank branch closures are gathering pace Lloyds and Halifax join Barclays, which is set to close 15 branches, Natwest is closing 43 more branches and HSBC is to close 25% of its UK sites. 

Now, Lloyds Banking Group which owns Lloyds and Halifax is due to close 40 more branches throughout April in June, after the 66 planned branch closure planned between October 2022 and January 2023.

How can you get cash if your bank has closed?

If a bank branch near you has closed or you’re looking for a way to access your money in an easier way, here are your options. 

Mobile banking. Some banks for example Natwest run their own mobile banking service where you are able to withdraw cash, pay bills and make deposits. You can also access your bank account through online banking through an app. The app enables you to transfer money and pay bills. 

Post Office. If you prefer to go in to withdraw cash, you can visit your local Post Office and either withdraw cash, or pay in cash or cheques. If you go onto the Post Office website and enter your postcode, they will tell you your closest Post Office. 

Cashback services. Another option is you can go into places and see if they offer cashback services. For example, most supermarkets will give cashback at the till, and so will convenience stores and newsagents. So if you’re near a corner shop, it’s worth an ask. This Link locator will tell you the closest place you can ask for cashback when you enter your postcode. You can usually get up to £100 cashback at shops and supermarkets.
