A Personal Military Banking Service
Holt’s Military Banking prides itself on understanding the complexities of serving in the military and the financial pressures this places on families. This might be needing the flexibility to rent out your home while away on postings, fitting banking around diverse working patterns, and how having a barracks and British forces post office (BFPO) address can put individuals at a disadvantage when it comes to applying for credit.
For our Holt’s Premier Customers, the Black Packaged Account is a great example of how the bank helps customers save money.
Benefits of the account include mobile phone insurance, travel insurance for the family, breakdown cover, no foreign transaction charges, access to travel lounges and a global concierge service.
Holt’s participates in the Forces Help to Buy scheme, offers a mortgage advisor service and financial health checks.

- The Armed Forces terminal grant lending scheme
- Military customers’ base rate related loans scheme
- Personal loan rate appeal scheme
- Full digital online and mobile banking.
