No notice accounts can sometimes be confused with instant access deals. When looking for the best short-term access savings accounts, it is worth remembering that an instant access account allows savers to withdraw funds immediately with either a cash-point card or in branch with a passbook.

No notice accounts may not require any advance notification to withdraw funds, however some providers may pay funds by cheque, in which case savers would need to wait for clearance. Some providers may also need to transfer the amount to another bank or building society which could take up to a couple of days. Here is a run down of the current best no notice products.
