Free Bank Accounts

Some bank accounts will charge a monthly or annual fee. Free bank accounts do not carry these charges but may pay a lower rate of interest as a result. You don't have to pay to have an account, but you will still be liable for overdraft and other charges set out in the account's terms.

Most free bank accounts can be accessed in a number of ways, such as through a bank branch, via online banking or telephone banking.
