The aa is driving to the rescue of savers with the relaunch of its telephone operated eleven month fixed rate bond.

Requiring a minimum investment of £500, the bond pays 3.75% on maturity (3.70% monthly), ranking it amongst the best one year bond in the market.

Additional investments can be made whilst the issue remains open, but withdrawals are strictly forbidden, so be certain only to commit funds you are sure you can live without for the term.

As one of the better rates available in its field, we've awarded this product four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
