Here at CompareBanks™, our aim is simple. We want to help you compare banks and make informed decisions about them. We believe that everyone should have access to all of the details about the banks available to them, which is why we’re totally impartial. It’s also why our readers get to vote on which brands they think are best, based on their real-life experiences.
We publish information on all UK banks. This means we bring you the best reviews, news, and views so you can make the right decision based on your own personal circumstances. This a journalistic website, and we work hard to bring you accurate, up-to-date information at all times. Of course, due to the flexible nature of the industry, rates are subject to change at short notice. As such, it’s impossible to guarantee that the data is always 100% accurate, but we do all we can do check and update it.
Although at CompareBanks, we thoroughly research each article and review, we encourage our readers to undertake as much additional research as possible. By using several sources, you can make the banking decisions that best reflect your needs. If you do ever see anything on our site that doesn’t look right, please do let us know.
Our readers are interested in getting the best possible deals. That’s why we compare UK banks plus a range of other financial products. Credit cards, loans, mortgages, current accounts and savings are all covered. We also invite our readers to review their overall customer experiences with different lenders and high street banks.
How we make our money
Comparison sites like ours make money when you find a great deal through us. In some instances, when a customer buys a product or changes banks, we get paid a fee by the bank for that referral. You will not have to pay us anything at all, so there are no catches or hidden extras involved when using CompareBanks. We also have advertising throughout the site that helps to keep us up and running smoothly.
Why we’re here
CompareBanks is a hub for information, tips and impartial reviews, written by real people. We’re not marketing executives trying to make lots of money; we simply care about providing informed advice about financial products. Our comparison service contains a list of different providers and their products, along with reviews from genuine customers.
We understand that it can seem like a full-time job trawling through different offers and trying to find the best deal. That’s why we want to make things as easy as possible for all of our readers.
Our site has been expertly developed to help you find the information you need to help you make educated decisions about your finances. You can use our website in two ways:
