Compare Basic Current Accounts
Looking for a basic current account? Many banks are now offering current accounts with additional services and features - but the catch is that this type of account will cost you anything from £5 to £15 per month. If you are happy with a basic current account service, then most banks will offer you this - although bear in mind that you may have to ask them specifically for a basic current account if you don't want to be sold an account with lots of extras. Benefits might include:
- Free online and telephone banking for ease of access
- Many accounts offer overdraft facilities, and some providers offer interest free overdrafts up to a certain amount
- A cash card or debit card & the option of a cheque book
- Direct debit facilities for setting up bill payments, etc.
