Finding a good savings rate in the UK is not easy these days.
When looking for savings accounts, it is important to consider several variables, for example;
- Is the bank going to provide an above average interest rate?
- Is the bank you are giving your money to financially secure?
- Do they have good customer service, if you are a frequent traveller, can you access your money abroad?
- Are there any benefits to using the bank’s premier service? i.e. Will you get a better mortgage deal?
- Understand what tax-free savings entitlement you are eligible for
