    Nationwide 9th Aug 18 at 7:29 AM
    Hi all,
    First question of many
    Has anyone had experience of changing from a flex account to a basic with Nationwide? I have been banking with them for 6 months and about to go BR.Are they likely to close my account and insist I open a flexbasic or will they simply downgrade which would save me loads of hassle.i have no debt with nationwide

    I opened a flexdirect online after BR and had no problems - I did make sure I selected the zero overdraft facility though.

    I have a DRO and thought I would have to change from a flex to a basic, but nope. They said that if there were any problems they would contact me to change. There weren't any problems, so I still have my flex account. I had no debts with them.

    Thanks for your replies,It does seem that Nationwide do leave you alone if you are not causing them any problems.Thats good to know.
