I’m not sure if this has been asked anywhere before (I’ve done a quick search and couldn’t find the question). Will Monzo offer cheque books?
I know this is likely to cause some uproar as cheques are seen very un-Monzo-ish and not particularly ‘new bank’ however cheques are needed very occasionally.
For example, I’ve had to pay the DVLA by cheque, and I prefer to pay my driving instructor by cheque too simply because I don’t like carrying the cash for block lessons with me.
I know if I wanted a cheque now and I didn’t have a cheque book, I could go to a branch and get a one-off cheque but I’d be charged for this (from working there, I recall Barclays charge £15 for one). Plus obviously going to a branch won’t be possibly with Monzo.
So I’d love to know if Monzo plan on offering them (especially as one-day cheque clearing is coming this year).
