No notice accounts are best suited to savers who require quick and easy access to their funds.

Many of these accounts include an introductory bonus which runs for a limited period, often twelve months and account for a large part of the overall rate.

It is important to remember that once the bonus period expires, the rate will revert to a much lower figure.
