Santander offers a wide range of savings products, ranging from tax-free cash ISAs, to online savings accounts and fixed rate savings accounts, many of which offer competitive rates of interest.
Santander also provides savings accounts for children, as well as ‘Reward Savings’ accounts which offer higher rates to those customers also opening a bank account, so there are plenty of different options to choose from.
