In the UK it depends who you bank with, traditionally cheques have always taken 3 days to clear through the UK banking system, this allowed the banks time to check that the money was available to pay the cheque, however technology has improved so much that it no longer takes 3 days in many cases the cheque can be cleared almost instantly, some UK banks now offer to credit your account at the time you deposit the cheque, although others still insist on waiting up to 3 days. Check with your bank for clearance terms.

For more than thirty years, UK banks have issued cards for use with cheques. The card would guarantee payment of the cheque up to a specific amount (£30, £50 or £100) even if funds were not available in the account. It made cheque payments secure for retailers. The cards were either dedicated guarantee cards or they could be use as debit or credit cards, depending on the issuing bank.

Because money is available on demand these accounts are also referred to as demand accounts or demand deposit accounts.
