The average no notice savings rate is currently at 1.00%, the highest level since February 2009.

Providers often include introductory bonuses to boost a product's initial rate, some of which account for a large portion of the overall rate, which may be a reason why averages have risen.

Here is a selection of some of the current top no notice accounts with introductory bonuses.
