  • BASIC

    These accounts essentially have no overdraft facility, usually no debit card, cheque book and typically no in-credit interest. Usually for those who have a poor credit history and would struggle to get a standard bank account.

    You’ll be able to do basic banking functions like direct debits and standing orders, though you must ensure you have enough money to cover any outgoings or they won’t be paid and you’ll be charged a fee.

    Each bank has its own rules, so if one rejects you, apply to a different bank.

  • STANDARD

    Generally these are free to have and offer general banking facilities you would expect like access to an overdraft, debit card, cheque book, possibly some in-credit interest, direct debit and standing order set up.

    To get these accounts you can’t have a bad credit history and you may need to pay in a minimum amount each month or pay a fee.

    Some banks offer incentives to switch to them, cashback and enhanced terms on other products.

  • PACKAGED

    You will typically have to pay a monthly or annual fee to have these accounts and sometimes pay in a minimum amount each month.

    They offer a bundle of perks on top of the usual banking facilities for free such as mobile, travel, and breakdown insurance, vouchers & discounts and enhanced interest rates.

    You must make sure you are eligible and correctly covered for the insurances; that you will make use of the extras and that you can’t get them cheaper elsewhere.

Most banks are now offering a 7 working day switching service, making it incredibly easy to move to a new current account. The switching service does the work for you, so instead of you having to take care of moving all your payments that go in (like your salary ) and out (like your rent or mortgage), the bank does it all for you. And if they get it wrong you will be refunded any lost interest, fines or charges that occur as a result of the switch in the first 13 months. Bear in mind that your old account will have to be closed for the rules to apply.
