The AA has delivered some good news to savers by increasing the rate on its Two Year Fixed Rate Bond.

Now paying 3.70%, the bond is comfortably amongst the top five accounts in its field.

That early access to funds is allowed is a plus, although it should be noted that the associated penalties are considerable, particularly early on.

In order to gain fully from the high rate, however, funds must be committed for the full term.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars are well deserved.
