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 current crop of savings accounts do not offer interest rates that match inflation, which means that people are losing money in real terms. Although there are plenty of savings accounts available, the majority of them fail to provide much of a financial advantage. This is 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 instant access savings account will offer flexible withdrawal facilities while combining these with a good rate of interest.
