Why do you need to visit a bank branch?

Cheques - if you ever receive any - can be paid in at a Post Office. And paying in using an image will be possible soon.
Cash deposits - can also be paid in at a Post Office
Cash withdrawals - as well as cash machines, most supermarkets will give cashback when you pay with a debit card.

Most other transactions can be carried out online or by phone.

Yes you can. I have paper statements selected - there's a setting that can be changed online using the Natwest website (don't know about their mobile app as I don't use it but would guess it probably has paperless settings there too).
Say goodbye to paper and switch to online statements - you can update your paperless settings or switch back to paper at anytime.

When you switch to paperless, you can view, save and print up to 7 years worth of statements in PDF format.
Is there a condition that to get the incentive you have to go paperless?

Yes but we prefer a branch for all of the above apart from cash withdrawals and like the privacy of talking face to face with a human being if required.

And it helps keep branches open as not everyone, especially the elderly and the poorest, have internet access

I should have thought that more privacy could be afforded over the phone or internet rather than a branch.

[quote="William Joseph1"]

Not if you go into the private room if required. Counter is fine for paying CC bill or paying in cheque. Or changing £40 into £5 notes. I do that so I have cash in useful amounts for spending small amounts in independent shops. A £5 note is so useful to them and like Halesworth no banks branches anymore or my corner shop which has got to go to the north of the town to get to a branch to get change and that means joining a traffic jam and paying to park.

Quidco cashback has ended; cashback still available at TCB although only half the amount:
