ING Direct has upped the ante on its instant access account.

New customers investing in its Instant Access Savings product will be paid a rate of 3.06% (+0.10%).

The account now pays an improved bonus rate of 2.56% for the first 12 months, although a review will be required after this period as the rate will be less favourable.

With an AER of 3.10%, it is market-leading in the no notice market when excluding internet only accounts and sits just below the market-leading internet account.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
