Compare Metro Bank savings accounts

Getting the right savings account can help your savings grow quickly. When deciding on which savings option to take, you should consider how much savings you have, how long you intend to lock your savings up for and how much interest you want.

Metro Bank have a variety of savings options that could help you.

Metro Bank provide a current account with competitive interest, attractive features, and awards for switching.

Instant Access Savings Accounts

If you need to remain flexible with your savings, then an instant access account could be the right savings option for you. An instant access account allows you unlimited withdrawals, as well as interest on your savings.

Metro Bank’s instant access account gives you complete freedom to withdraw from your savings at your convenience, along with interest paid annually or monthly.

Fixed Rate Bonds

You can access higher rates of interest, if you are willing to lock up your savings for a prolonged period of time.

Fixed rate bonds typically have some of the best interest rates on the market, which are guaranteed for the life of the bond, providing you do not make a withdrawal from your savings.

Metro Bank have a 1 year fixed rate bond and a 2 year fixed rate bond, both of which provide competitive interest rates.
