What to look for when switching current accounts

When considering which current account to switch to, make sure to look at the following key factors to see whether the account is a good match for your needs:

Interest rates – Both the interest you earn on your savings and that you pay on your overdraft can make a big difference to the value of your account to you. Make sure to consider both of these rates with respect to how you use your account and whether you are more likely to be in credit or not most of the time.

Switching incentives – Many of the most popular current accounts offer generous incentives to switch, including cash bonuses up front. You will normally need to use the Current Account Switch Service and move your everyday banking to the new account to qualify.

Cashback – Cashback deals are now common across many current accounts, giving you a regular incentive to keep using your account. With a TSB Classic Plus account you can earn up to £120 cashback a year for having active monthly direct debits and using your debit card regularly. The Santander 1|2|3 Current Account, meanwhile, offers cashback on your household bills, which can soon add up to significant amounts.

Additional benefits – Most current accounts will also offer you extra benefits, either as standard or as optional add-ons. Most common is free insurance, but other offers include free internet security software.
