But before you grab the duvet and hibernate, take a look at our awesome autumnal offers on current accounts – there’s something for everyone. Choose from either a £125 M&S gift card, £200 cashback or a tech gift worth up to £199 plus more when you switch banks. 

The 7-day Current Account Switch Service

Switching has never been easier thanks to the Current Account Switch Service which guarantees 7-day switching. Introduced by the government in 2013, the service is hassle-free, safe, free to use and you can choose and agree your switch date with your new bank.

Your new bank will take care of moving all your outgoing payments (for example, your direct debits and standing orders) as well as those coming in (for example, your salary). It’ll also move any money held in your existing account before closing it. You can read more about the Current Account Switch Service, here.

Why switch?

There are a number of highly competitive current accounts on the market which could offer you far more than your existing account does.

Plus, many accounts come with an incentive for switching to them. However, remember to make sure you’re choosing the current account that’s right for you and that the reward is an added bonus.
