LONDON, May 25, 2011 -

Lloyds TSB today announces its commitment to support personal banking
customers who may be affected by the disruption to air travel.

Mike Regnier, Director of Personal Current Accounts at Lloyds
Banking Group, said:

"We know that this is a difficult, uncertain and potentially
expensive time for many of our customers who are either stranded overseas or
about to go away. Similar to last year's ash cloud support we are offering a
comprehensive package which should help customers trying to get home if the
worst should materialise. We are also providing guidance to those in the UK
make alternative travel plans."

The package of support includes:

Travel insurance

Travel insurance customers should in the first instance contact their
airline or tour operator to see what help and assistance is available from

However where customers are not covered by the airline or tour operator,
Lloyds TSB will be prepared in these exceptional circumstances to provide
extra support to all those customers currently abroad who have a Lloyds TSB
travel policy or are eligible for travel cover through our Silver, Gold,
Platinum or Premier Current Accounts, by agreeing to reimburse them for any
additional reasonable costs they may incur as a result of the disruption.

Helping Customers Manage Temporary Financial Difficulty

We recognise that customers abroad might face temporary
financial difficulty as a result of this unusual event. We are supporting our
customers who need to access temporary additional credit facilities - through
their overdraft or credit cards. This is subject to our lending policies.

Lloyds TSB will also waive any charges for Bank Account or Credit Card
customers that have been incurred as a result of disruption to their travel.
This will apply to charges for late payment or because a customer has
inadvertently gone over their agreed credit limit while abroad. Customers who
are affected should get in touch as soon as they are able.

How to Contact Us

Customers that are abroad and concerned about their bank
account or credit card can talk to us about their situation and the options
available by calling: +44(0)1733347007 or alternatively, the number displayed
on the back of their debit or credit card.
