Regular savings accounts often offer a higher rate of interest and are suited to savers who are willing to pay in a regular amount of money each month over a set period.

Customers need to be aware of the strict terms related to these deals. For example, account holders must be aware of the maximum savings limit. If a saver does not pay in the set amount, then they could be penalised.
