Quick and easy access to saved money
• A current (or easy access savings) account is great if you need quick access to money in any unforeseen circumstances or short term purchases e.g. holidays
• But because it can be easily accessed, you may be tempted to withdraw your money and possibly slow down your progress to your savings goal
• Rates are most likely to be quite low due to the easy access benefit. However depending on your level of savings, some current accounts are offering the best rates available.
