Compare Ulster savings accounts

Ulster Bank offers various accounts targeted at different kinds of savers. Knowing which is best for you means being clear about your own financial situation and saving goals. See below for a selection of saving accounts.

Current Accounts

A current account may well offer you the best return on relatively small amounts of money. 

If there is too much money in your current account, you will generally get a better return by moving it to a different kind of account.

Instant Access Savings Accounts

Ulster bank eSavings currently offers a market leading instant access account of 1.25% AER/Gross pa (variable) which can be accessed online, by telephone or via a mobile app.

If you want to a deposit a lump sum while retaining the option to add to it later or take money out when you need it, an instant savings account may be best. There are normally no fees or penalties for adding and removing funds, although there may be an annual limit on how often this can be done.

Many instant access accounts allow you to take money out at cash points, making them especially convenient. You will normally also be able to make online and phone transfers when you need to.

Fixed Rate Bonds

If you have a lump sum that you don’t need to use any time soon, a fixed rate bond can offer very good returns. The headline advantage is that you get a guaranteed rate of interest for a set period (often 1-5 years), although you cannot normally touch your money until that period expires.

The longer the life of the bond, the better interest rate you will usually get. Some providers may allow you to make early withdrawals but this will usually incur a penalty in the form of lost interest.

Cash ISAs

ISAs allow you to avoid paying tax on the interest you earn from the money deposited in them. This can make a very significant difference to the return you earn, especially if you are a higher rate tax payer. The amount you can deposit is set annually by the government and is £20,000 for 2017/18.

You main options with an ISA are instant access and fixed term accounts. An instant access cash ISA gives a variable rate of interest, but lets you add and take away funds whenever needed. You will get a higher rate with a fixed term cash ISA and this rate will be guaranteed for a set period, but you cannot take money out or put more in during the lifetime of the account.
