    Where is the best place to park my savings? 17th Mar 17 at 10:36 AM
    Hi all
    I and my wife are just back from a short trip from India and we loved it so much that we want to travel all around India and spend a year or 2 living and working there.

    I will put the house on the market next month and I should get after paying the bank and fees something around £70k and I also have £15k savings

    My question is where should I put all the savings together as I will not touch it for next 2 years?

    Thank you

    One possibility that comes to mind is NS&i income bonds. Present interest rate 1%, until 30th April, 2017, then it drop to 0.75% from 1st May.

    Check the T&C's before applying

    You could take a look at these accounts if you won't be touching the savings for 2 years.
