Current accounts - what you need to know

Almost everyone has a current account with a bank or building society for their day to day financial needs such as being paid your salary, paying your bills, buying food and getting the occasional pair of shoes. But not everyone realises there are several different kinds of current accounts. These are:
  • High Interest – For those who are never in their overdraft, they could earn a better interest rate on their current account cash
  • Overdraft – Better overdraft rates for those who need it, because sometimes life crams so much into one month that your outgoings end up bigger than your income
  • Packaged – Accounts with an annual fee but with added bonuses like discounted travel/mobile/car insurance etc.
  • Student – Accounts tailored for students that include special offers such interest/fee free overdrafts
