How to choose a basic bank account wisely

A basic bank account is pretty much what it says on the tin. It's an account that you can use to manage your everyday banking essentials. Although its tools are simple, with most basic bank accounts you can expect internet and mobile banking, a visa debit card and the ability to set up payments by direct debit and standing order. It still pays to compare your options, as product features will differ between accounts. Unsure what you’re looking for? Check out our simple guide to basic bank accounts.
