Savings accounts that require less than 90 days notice to access funds may suit many customers. This is due to the fact that, although cash is safely locked away for a set period, it can still be accessed after a reasonable time.

As with any notice account, savers need to be aware of the required notice period, if not they could be penalised. The following accounts all require 60 days notice to withdraw funds.

Savers can invest between £1,000 and £2 million. 60 days advance notice is needed to access cash and although early access is allowed, it is subject to 60 days loss of interest.
