Virgin Money has reviewed its fixed rate savings options, significantly improving its one year fixed rate bond and ISA.

The accounts have had their rates increased by 0.40% and now offer 3.30%, with both moving into the top ten in the short-term fixed and ISA markets.

The fixed ISA also offers the flexibility for earlier access to funds, albeit subject to a penalty.

Both accounts have been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
