The past few years have not been all that kind to savers, but there are still a number of accounts that offer real bang for you buck.
Providers are in a constant battle to attract savers' money and with Moneyfacts.co.uk figures showing that there were almost 2,400 savings accounts to choose from at the end of August, there's an option for everybody, whether you want to invest a tenner or £100,000.
For many people, a simple instant access account is suitable, allowing them to get their hands on their money whenever they want.
However, if you're saving towards a goal – a new car or a wedding perhaps – then an account that forces you to give notice before you can access your fund may be more convenient.
Or maybe you'd like to give your children the best possible start to their adult life and would like to begin building up a tidy nest egg for when they turn 18?
Here is a showcase of some of the finest savings accounts currently available, and if you don't find what you're looking for, be sure to browse the Moneyfacts Best Buy savings tables.
