What is Hodge Bank's best savings account with the highest interest rate?

The best savings account depends on what you want from your savings. If you're after fast access to your money, then an easy-access account should suit you. However, if you're happy to lock your money away for a time to access a higher rate, then a fixed-rate bond is a good option.

Finally, if you're looking to maximise your returns and shield them from income tax, consider an ISA. Below, we've listed the different types of accounts Hodge Bank offers, plus the highest interest rate currently available.

How to open an account

To open a savings account with Hodge Bank, you will need to be at least 18 years old and a UK resident. All accounts must be opened and managed online.

It takes around 10 minutes to open an account. You will need to fill in an application form, providing personal details such as your name, address and National Insurance number. If you are opening a cash ISA and wish to transfer funds in, you will also need to sign a transfer authority form.

Documents needed to open an account

You shouldn’t need to provide any documents when opening an account as Hodge Bank says it carries out electronic searches to verify your identity. If you are asked for documents, you can send copies by email.

Pros and cons

Pros

  • Easy to open an account. Quick to open an account online and no paper documents required.
  • FSCS protection. Money in accounts will be protected up to £85,000 per person.
  • Competitive interest rates. Many accounts offer decent rates of interest.

Cons

  • Online only. You can only open and manage a savings account online – there are no bank branches.
  • Limited range of accounts. You can only choose from fixed rate accounts, so these won’t be suitable if you want regular access to your savings or don’t have a lump sum to invest.

Our verdict: Is a savings account from Hodge Bank worth it?

If you’re looking to lock away a lump sum of cash for a set time and you’re happy to bank online, the savings accounts on offer from Hodge Bank are certainly worth a look. However, if you’re after a little more flexibility, you want to be able to top up and withdraw your savings as and when, or you’re simply looking for alternative ways to bank, Hodge Bank savings accounts won’t be right for you.
