ING Direct has increased its savings appeal with the launch of two new fixed rate savings accounts.

Standing out from the crowd is the one year deal, which pays 3.00% on maturity and has a reduced minimum investment of £1K.

Whilst no further additions are permitted, earlier access to funds is allowed subject to a penalty and account closure, all adding to its overall appeal.

Savers wanting this account must have or open an ING Direct Savings account.

Sitting just below the market leaders, this deal earns four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
