Compare RCI Bank Savings Accounts

RCI is a retail and commercial bank. Their range of savings accounts include some options best suited to long term and short term savings. Below is a breakdown of RCI’s main types of savings accounts.

Current Accounts

Current accounts often give the best rates of interest on the market, but only up to a certain deposit threshold.

If your savings are more than your account will pay interest on, transfer the excess balance to a different account. This will enable you to benefit from a better return overall.

Instant Access Savings Accounts

If you are keen on flexible saving, an instant access account is hard to beat. This will let you make deposits and withdrawals as often as you like, although bear in mind there may be an annual limit on withdrawals.

Instant access accounts will usually allow you to make transfers online or by phone, and some even offer a cash card that means you can take money out at a standard ATM.

Fixed Rate Bonds

For savers that want to earn a reliable return on a significant deposit, fixed rate bonds tend to be ideal. In exchange for not being able to access your money for a set amount of time (usually 1 to 5 years), you will be offered a fixed rate of interest for the life of the bond.

Generally speaking, the interest rates on fixed rate bonds are pretty rewarding, and make a good way to save if you are confident you will not need your deposit in the near future.

Cash ISAs

If you are liable to pay UK tax, putting part of your savings into a fixed rate ISA may be a smart plan. This allows you to earn tax-free interest on deposits up to a combined yearly total set by the government. For the 2017/18 tax year that amount is £20,000.

When choosing an ISA, there are two main types to be aware of - instant access and fixed term. Instant access cash ISAs let you take out money whenever you need without paying a penalty, so are best for short term saving. Fixed term cash ISAs work much like fixed rate bonds, in that you will receive a guaranteed return in exchange for locking your money away for a set period. In general, fixed term ISAs will have better interest rates than the instant access variety.
