Citibank has launched a new current account certain to attract a wealth of attention.

The Citibank Plus Current Account offers a variety of benefits, including worldwide holiday travel insurance, for a fee of £8 per month.

The fee will even be waived if customers pay in at least £1,800 per month and have two active direct debits or maintain an average balance of £20,000.

Also of considerable appeal is the authorised overdraft of 16.9% EAR, which is one of the lowest available and includes an interest and fee-free buffer of £500.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars are richly deserved.
