We are CompareBanks

CompareBanks.co.uk has been started to help you compare banks and make informed decisions about them. We believe that information about banks should be available to everyone, which is why we’re totally impartial and allow our readers to vote on who they think is best, based on real-life experiences.

We publish information on all UK banks, bringing you the best reviews 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. However, due to the flexible nature of the industry, rates are subject to change at short notice so it may not always be possible to provide 100% accurate data. We always suggest you undertake as much additional research as possible from a number of sources to help you make your decision. If you ever see anything on our site that doesn’t look right, please do let us know.

Our aim is to provide you with a simple way to compare UK banks plus a range of financial products so you can get the best possible deal. Credit cards, loans, mortgages, current accounts and savings are all covered, and 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. Every time a customer buys a product or changes banks, we sometimes get paid a fee by the bank. You will not have to pay us anything at all, so there are no catches and hidden extras involved in using CompareBanks.co.uk. We also have advertising throughout the site that helps to keep the site up and running smoothly, covering costs such as hosting and more.

Why we’re here

CompareBanks.co.uk is a one-stop site for information, tips and impartial reviews, written by real people- not marketing executives trying to make lots of money. Our comparison service contains a list of different providers and their products, along with reviews from genuine customers.

We understand that it can be a full-time job trawling through different offers and trying to find the best deal, so we want to make things as easy as possible for all our readers. How to use our service

Our site has been specially developed for you to use and find all the information you need to help you make an informed decision about your finances. You can use our site in two ways- to read through our posts and reviews to gather the information you need, or you can write reviews of your own experiences as a customer.

Why use CompareBanks.co.uk

There are lots of benefits of using CompareBanks, such as:

  • It’s totally free to use
  • You won’t have to pay extra on any of the financial products you choose – the prices or rates quoted here are exactly the same as the ones you’ll find with the banks
  • It saves you time – having all the information to hand saves you having to spend hours looking at different banks individually

The information we provide

At CompareBanks.co.uk, you’ll find information about a range of the different financial products and services provided by UK banks. This could be anything from car insurance and home insurance to mortgages, investments and current accounts – if the banks are offering it, we’ll provide information about it! We’ll also give you an overview of the banks themselves, including how long they’ve been operating and the kind of customers they work with.

As well as well known high street lenders, we also provide information about online banks and other non-highstreet opportunities. The UK experienced a huge increase in online banks in 2016 and most of these operate solely online, meaning they’re often able to offer exactly the same as high street banks, with less cost to the end user…you.

The brands we provide information on

We provide details of a huge range of lenders and financial institutions, from big name high street banks to smaller online-only operations. If you’re looking for any kind of money product, we’ll show you a list of providers who offer those services.

How we find our prices

The information we provide on our site is based on that given by the banks themselves. We pay attention to all the developments in the industry and the economy as a whole and do our best to ensure that all the information available on CompareBanks.co.uk is up to date and reliable.

How we use your personal details

We understand that you won’t want the whole world to find your details online and you probably don’t want to be bothered with constant marketing calls, so all the personal information you provide to us will be treated with strict confidence. Any personal data we use is encrypted and our site is completely secure to help safeguard you from fraud and unauthorised use of your details. In addition, any reviews you make about the banks and financial institutions detailed on the site will be completely anonymous for your added security and peace of mind.

CompareBanks.co.uk is here to help you make informed decisions about your finances. We believe in making life easy for all our customers, so we’ll never bombard you with technical jargon or try to push you towards one particular provider. Moving banks and committing to a new deal is a big decision, so it’s our job to help you make that decision by being totally clear, honest and impartial.
