By: MoneyFacts

Savers who turn to the most familiar banks* to hunt for a good savings deal may feel it’s a logical place to start, but they may want to think twice. If savers are looking for a top rate on an easy access account, then they are likely to be disappointed if they ignore the less familiar brands.

In fact, according to the latest moneyfacts.co.uk research, the difference between the best easy access account on the market versus the worst big bank rate would cost savers £250 a year in interest (based on a £20,000 initial deposit). As rates continue to improve away from the biggest banks*, it may be a good time for savers to reconsider more unfamiliar brands to get the best possible return.

One reason for this decline stems from a shake-up in the credit card market in 2015, when the EU interchange fee cap ruling was implemented. Its purpose was to save consumers money at the tills by capping the transaction fee for using their card.
