With UK savings rates at an all time low you need to take action to ensure your savings are getting the best interest deal possible.

The savings accounts available do not provide interest rates that match inflation, which means that people's savings are eroding in real terms. Despite the variety of savings accounts available, most of them do not provide any financial advantage. This is usually because they offer interest on a level with the base rate set by the Bank of England. We help you compare a selection of some of the best interest paying accounts. 

For savers looking to access their money regularly, a good easy access savings account will offer flexible withdrawal facilities while combining these with a good rate of interest.
