The Natwest Emergency Telephone Service
No one wants to be stuck in that situation where you have lost your bank card and have no money to get home. Well, if you’re a Natwest customer, the days of being stranded penniless after a bad night are over. Simply call the Natwest Emergency number and they will give you a code so you can draw money out of a Natwest or RBS ATM. If you are an online banking customer, you can get up to £300. Even if you’re not, you can still get £60 to tide you over.
The Natwest Emergency service can also cancel your card for you, so if anyone else picks it up it is useless to them. The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It goes without saying however that you must have money in your account to use it. To get your code all you have to do is answer a few security questions. The Natwest Emergency cash number won “Best Personal Finance Innovation” in the year 2011/2012.
Natwest is the UK’s largest retail bank with over 1600 branches in the UK. To find out more visit the Natwest website.
The latest NatWest branch to be hit with a closure due to the increase in internet banking and decrease in footfall is in Reddish, Stockport.
The number of users for this particular branch has fallen by 18% in recent years and the branch will close on Monday 23rd March 2015. The cash machine will still be available and there have been provisions put in place for NatWest customers to use the local, nearby Post Office for counter services.
Around the country, NatWest has reported a reduction of around 30% for in store service over the course of the last 4 years, with online and mobile banking transactions growing by 200%
A NatWest spokeswoman said: “We do understand that some of our customers do not use the internet or mobile phone app and prefer to be served over-the-counter. As a result we have come to an agreement with the local Post Office, which is very close to the branch and there are a further four Post Offices within a four mile radius, so that customers can withdraw cash, check balances, and make deposits free of charge. Our business customers can also now get coinage. Our branches are still very important to us and we’ll continue to have one of the largest branch networks in the UK.”

Three of the largest banks in Britain left their customers in outrage when their mobile apps crashed at the end of last month.
Natwest, RBS and Barclays all experienced a major surge in traffic that caused their apps to fail. RBS reported that there were 5,500 customers trying to log in to their mobile banking accounts every minute. Users who tried to access them between 7am and 2pm on February 28th were therefore prevented from logging in. It caused a lot of outrage because, being the last day of the month, this is typically payday for many Britons. Many customers resorted to calling the RBS telephone banking number however significantly more people decided to take to social media to complain
RBS apologized to customers on Twitter by saying: “We are working to urgently address this and apologize to those affected.” Natwest also followed suit and tweeted: “We’re aware of some issues on our Mobile Banking service and are working hard to fix them. Sorry and thanks for your patience.”
Unfortunately, faulty services aren’t exactly news for NatWest and RBS customers. Last year, they were both locked out of making payments at Tesco petrol stations. Just a few months earlier on December 2nd, the busiest shopping day of the year, 750,000 were unable to access their finances. That’s not to mention the attack on Natwest’s website just several days after this incident that caused it to crash.
Director of APM at Compuware, Michael Allen, said: “High demand for banking services on payday should be a predictable scenario for a bank. Today’s customers expect 24/7 availability, and failure to meet these expectations results in very public condemnation – as we can see from the flurry of angry Tweets. The fact that Barclays, RBS and Santander are all experiencing problems shows this isn’t an isolated problem, but one the industry as a whole is facing.”

Rugby star Dave Attwood joined up with his England team mates Joe Marler and Christian Wade earlier this month to help launch NatWest’s Rugbyforce 2014.
Rugbyforce is a programme developed by the bank in partnership with the RFU, and is designed to help smaller rugby clubs across the country become stronger by renovating much-needed facilities. The programme is supported and welcomed by volunteers and local communities, and was launched at the start of November with a fundraising quiz, organised by the Rugby player trio. Dave Attwood expressed that such events are a great way of realising the importance of grassroots rugby clubs.
Last year’s Rugbyforce saw 400 clubs and 8000 volunteers take part across England and Wales. The next Rugbyforce weekend is due to take place in June 2014.
RFU’s Rugby Development Officer added that with hosting the Rugby World Cup in 2015, Rugbyforce is an exciting opportunity to inspire thousands of others to take up rugby.
NatWest supplies clubs who take part in Rugbyforce with a range of exciting rewards and benefits, as well as exclusive grants and funding to those clubs that qualify.
