Regular savings accounts are a great way to adjust yourself to the monthly discipline of putting money aside as savings. They help you to start off your savings pot and encourage you to keep up the monthly contributions by making big interest penalties if you miss a payment. They also try to curb the temptation to raid your savings too, by charging harsh penalties if you make a withdrawal.
Regular savings accounts are designed to kick start your savings. Make sure you can commit to making the minimum monthly contribution, and that you won’t need access to your money during any initial term.
Missed payment and withdrawal penalties are normally harsher with fixed rate regular savings accounts, but it is also these that tend to pay the best rates.
Normally you will need to make a minimum monthly deposit to the account (usually of at least £10, although this can vary depending on the account you choose). You are also limited to the maximum you can put in each month – typically to £250 or £500.
Regular savings accounts tend to offer higher rates of interest than are available on normal accounts. Fixed rate regular savers are particularly attractive as they can offer higher rates than on equivalent fixed rate bonds, while allowing you to make regular contributions (something that a normal fixed rate bond won’t allow).
