Current accounts

A current account is an 'everyday' bank account. It's most likely the one which you'll pay your bills from, and get paid into - so it's pretty important. Switching current accounts used to be a big deal thanks to all the admin. But with the new switch service offered by most banks, it's now very easy for consumers to make the most of switch incentives and packaged accounts.

This section of the site is dedicated to current accounts and provides everything you need to get a great deal. Here you will find our current account comparison table and the product library, with in-depth information and customer reviews.
