    Current account switching service question 9th Feb 18 at 10:52 PM
    Hi, I was wondering if you could help me please, I cant find the answer to this particular question online:

    If I have for example, a current account, savings account and a mortgage account with a bank and I initiate the switching service with another bank for the current account - is the savings account and mortgage account left untouched?

    Yes, just your current account will switch unless your saving account is linked to your current account, i.e. a regular saver

    ......and not exactly in answer to the question- if you have an existing bank account that suits your needs don't switch that.
    Set up a donor account to switch.
    It looks good on paper if you have shown loyalty to one paerticular bank for a number of years.
    I would suggest that most people keep their 'main' current account.
    Being polite and pleasant doesn't cost anything!
