Notice accounts can be a good option for savers who do not need immediate access to funds.

There is a vast range of products on the savings market with differing notice periods, so it is important to take the time and check out which account would suit you best before applying.

Some providers allow a degree of flexibility and allow funds to be accessed early if need be, although this is often subject to penalties such as a loss of interest.

Here is a selection of the current best cash ISAs which require advance notice.

This account pays an annual rate of 3.01% including a bonus of 0.70% for fifteen months. Savers can invest a minimum of £1,000 and transfers in are accepted. 90 days notice must be given to access funds and early access is not allowed.

The Champion ISA pays an annual rate of 2.80% including a bonus of 1.35% until 30 June 2011. Savers can invest a minimum of £1,000. If the balance drops below £1,000 the rate will revert to 0.10% and no bonus will be applied. Transfers in are allowed.
