What to look for when switching current accounts

There are various key things to consider when deciding which current account is right for you and your everyday banking needs. The following are some of the most common things you should think about to help you see which current account best suits you.

Interest rates – The interest rates you pay on your savings and/or overdraft can make a big difference to whether an account offers good value for you or not. Which of the two interest rates is most important to you will generally depend on whether you are more of a saver or a spender and therefore whether you are more likely to be in credit or in your overdraft most of the time.

Switching incentives – Many current account providers now offer attractive joining bonuses, including cash and other introductory offers. This can make a significant different to whether a particular account offers good value or not, with some current accounts offering over £100 in switching bonuses.

Cashback – It is now common for current accounts to offer cashback deals to help make their accounts more appealing. For example, with a TSB Classic Plus account you can earn up to £120 cashback a year just for having active monthly direct debits and using your debit card regularly. Others, such as the Santander 1|2|3 Current Account offer cashback on your household bills, which can soon add up to significant amounts.

Additional benefits – Many current accounts also come with additional benefits, either as standard or as added extras which can be unlocked for an additional fee. These extra benefits typically include free insurance covering a range of things including travel, mobile phones and bikes. Some accounts also offer other freebies, such as free internet security software.
