  • I guess I’m not going to be popular for saying this, but I’m not too worried by banks not paying much (if any) interest on current accounts. I lived abroad for a while and the only way you got free banking was by keeping the equivalent of over £330 in local currency in your account, and obtaining a mini statement at least every 3 weeks. (There was some law that stated the banks had to send you a statement every 3 weeks, so if you didn’t want the expense of being charged for postage etc, you got yourself a mini statement from the cash machine instead).

    I would be quite happy with no interest but otherwise free current account banking and a more than decent rate of interest on my savings.
