Halifax has increased the rates of its fixed rate ISAs by up to 0.15%.

The two year option has been increased to 2.60% (+0.10%), the three year account is up 0.15% to 3.05%, and the four year deal has increased to 3.35% (+0.05%).

The four year deal is particularly attractive as it pays the top rate available in the fixed rate market. Both other options are very competitive and should prove popular with customers who are keen to use up this year's tax allowance.

The products have been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
