    Paying in cheque at Post Office

    Paying in cheque at Post Office 17th Jun 17 at 8:10 AM
    Does anyone know if Post Office branches stock Lloyds Bank paying in envelopes?

    They have arranged for some to be sent to me, but couldn't say for certain whether the Post Office stock them.

    I have a high value cheque in my posession and my only opportunity to pay it in is at the Heathrow Airport post office before I fly away. I have the paying in book, but no envelopes.

    Sorry, I don't know the answer to your question.

    But surely, this isn't the 'only' opportunity you have.

    You could post it direct to Lloyds Bank plc, BX1 1LT or ask a friend/relative to pay it into a branch for you.

    I'm not sure why you would think that the post office would hold paying in envelopes for other banks.

    Various banks offer current account servicing through Post Office branches. One of these is Lloyds Bank.

    For most banks, cash is paid in with the paying in book over the counter. For cheques, they have to be put into an envelope.

    I know for a fact that they stock HSBC/First Direct envelopes. I don't know whether they have Lloyds Bank envelopes, hence the question.

    They do stock HSBC ones (HSBC claim they don't stock them, can't send out any and it's the Post Office's responsibility to order in enough envelopes for customers!)

    I'd assume that at an airport, it's a smaller post office/a desk somewhere - so less likely to have what you need.

    The post office in my village holds the Lloyds envelopes (as well as NatWest ones) as I have paid in cheques to both my Lloyds and Natwest accounts there. I am sure if they are held at my village post office then bigger/busier branches should have them.

    In the end, I've just posted the cheque to Lloyds.
