Compare Britannia Building Society savings accounts

In 2009 Britannia Building Society merged with The Co-operative Banking Group and all of the savings options previously provided by Britannia are now offered by the Co-op.

If you want to find the best savings options for you, then you could review the options with The Co-operative Banking Group.

Current Accounts

Traditionally, current accounts have come with modest interest rates. However, recently high street banks have increased their current account interest rates as a way to attract more custom.

The opportunity to access better interest rates through current accounts has resulted in more  people using current accounts for their savings.

The Co-operative Banking Group has a current account that has competitive interest and various rewards.

Instant Access Savings Accounts

If you are likely to need to withdraw from your savings at some point in the near future, an instant access account might be a good option for you.

The Co-operative Banking Group’s instant access account has a modest interest rate but allows you to withdraw from your savings at your convenience.

Easy Access Savings Accounts

Easy Access Savings accounts are often very similar to instant access accounts; however, they typically will have some minor restrictions in relation to withdrawals.

The Co-op’s Britannia Select Access Saver account provides tiered interest depending on the number of times you withdraw from your savings in a year.

Fixed Rate Bonds

For those who are confident that they will not need their savings in the near future, fixed rate bonds could be a good option. Fixed rate bonds offer some of the best interest rates on the market, which is guaranteed for the life of the bond.  It should be noted that you typically cannot make a withdrawal from a fixed rate bond without incurring a potentially significant charge.

The Co-op offer a number of fixed rate bonds. The interest alters depending on the length of the fixed rate bond. It should be noted that often the longer bonds pay the higher rates of interest.

Cash ISAs

If you want to benefit from £20,000 tax-free interest ISA allowance, you could explore the Co-op’s ISAs.

The Co-op offer four different ISA options: Cash ISA, Online Cash ISA, Britannia Additional Allowance ISA and Britannia Fixed Rate Cash ISA.
