    I'd like a joint bank account with my partner, that lets you set up several areas within.

    For example, it would be really useful to have one called "Holiday" so that money separate from anything else goes in there.

    Also one called "Emergency"... etc...

    Are there any like this?

    Thanks

    Just set up multiple bank accounts. Then set up SOs in your main bank account; one SO for holidays will go to one bank, one SO for emergencies will go to another bank, etc.

    That is probably what I will end up doing if there's no solution to what I'm trying to do.

    I'd rather avoid more new bank accounts as these will be joint ones, so ideally would just have one with one bank.

    Lloyds, Halifax and BoS allow you to name their savings accounts. They're not alone.

    You can send external payments from them or transfer instantly between them and any current accounts.

    Interest rates are awful though.

    That's no issue, interest rates aren't that important. It will be used for:

    - mortgage payment

    - Saving up about 1000 for a holiday on a rolling basis

    Things like that, won't be much in there at all.
