Tools & Calculators
There are many different bank accounts on offer, from current accounts to student accounts, and from app-based accounts to packaged accounts. In this section we have guides on the different types of bank accounts available and tips to help you find the right account for you.
Many banks and building societies offer switching incentives to new customers, it’s an easy process and you can often earn £100s in cash or vouchers. Our Best Bank Accounts guide explains it all and compares the best buys for you.
If you’re looking for a packaged bank account, you could also save £100s off the cost of breakdown cover, travel insurance and mobile insurance for yourself and your family. You need to be aware of several things before getting a packaged bank account, which usually provide breakdown cover, mobile and travel insurance for a monthly fee. Our guide will help you ensure this type of account is right for you and avoid a nasty shock when trying to use the benefits.
We also look at the cutting edge of bank accounts, reviewing the latest banking and savings apps to see which can give you a helping hand with budgeting, saving and managing your cash in a way traditional banks don't. We guide you through all the best buys, pros and cons in our App-based Banking guide.
