Virgin Money Savings Reviews

Virgin is the better choice of my extremely limited high street

by Dzil, 6 days ago
Its handy
It's not the best rate
Recommended by Dzil

I moved my regular emergency account here when Britannia moved my "local" branch 50 miles and two train journeys away - the "local" Co-Op branch is a similar distance. The staff are friendly and the rates OK. The main thing is I may need fast access to this cash so the branch needs to be near and accessible. It's comfortable and I usually get seen quickly.

Virgin Instant Access ISA

by word, 1 month ago
Recommended by word

I don't have a regular savings account any longer these days, because the Virgin instant access ISA pays a reasonable rate - or did, compared to savings accounts of a while ago. Access is internet or phone, and internet is what I use. It's easy to transfer money in and out whenever you like, and I've no complaints at all, apart from wishing everyone would pay a bit more interest! But that's more up to the economy and not Virgin. And that's all I can say about this one.

Virgin savings account

by thomasc27, 1 month ago

The virgin savings account is simple and easy to use. Without much effort you can put money into your account and also pay out to a nominated account , so nice and safe.

It is easy to see how much money you have and there is a full transaction history. Other than putting money into my account, I haven't really used it that much.

Security looks good, you cannot choose your username, you get a computer assigned one. Standard password and security questions routine to access the site.

One minor annoyance is the telephone lines close at 8pm. If you forget your password or have problems with the site, you have to wait until morning.

Virgin Cash e-ISA

by zoe94, 5 months ago
good interest rate and easy access,
Customer service is 0844 number
Recommended by zoe94

Opened this a few months ago and it seems to be the best rate around. The appilcation was easy, and they accepted transfers in. The ISA is all online which is convenient, I hate going in branch, and I can transfer in as and when. (And withdraw, but I try not to!)

Haven't needed to contact customer service, so can't really give a fair review on this, but if I did there is only an 0844 number to ring.

Virgin Easy Access E-Saver

by biz234, 2 Mar 2012
Speed of the deposit system.... wow
Be careful what you send them as opening ID. Send more than asked for!
Recommended by biz234

Recently opened this Account. I chose it because it gives a decent rate and easy access on a low opening balance, which is what I needed. I have transfered money into the account at three different times now, using the Faster Payments System from an external bank and I am very impressed with the speed of the deposit.

Only had a problem with the opening of the account, regarding ID. Send them more identification than what they ask for, because when they give a brief summary of what they want from list a and b, it might not be the i.d they expect (e.g. don't send them anything like P45/P60s etc... because they will not except them, and even though there from HM Customs). I sent off exactly what they asked for on the list, but mine still came back as still needing more I.D.

Northern Rock/Virgin Money Easy Access Saver

by jdanns, 23 Feb 2012
Good rate of interest, and easy to use.
Recommended by jdanns

Have recently opened this account. It was so easy to do it on-line, but any queries are soon answered by very helpful telephone staff. The product pays one of the top rates of interest for an easy access account, and does not include a bonus, so no worries about remembering to move money when the bonus period end.

Virgin Northern Rock Easy Access E-Saver

by Alain, 10 Sep 2012
Easy access to money and quick transfer facilities. Good interest rate
Monthly interest never paid on time. Interest reduced without notice

Customer telephone service is indifferent and contradictory. The company do not reply to email enquires nor do they notify customers of any changes in the annual interest rate.

Virgin Money Easy Access Saver 2.85% Gross

by bennet3012, 10 Feb 2012
Good straightforward product return.
Recommended by bennet3012

Easy to open account either online, branch or post with a good return. I like the product as it isn't subject to added bonuses finishing after 6 months or 12 months. I like the transparency which makes it attractive to me.

They're all the same - terrible low rates

by gahu, 1 month ago
low rates

All saving accounts are the same with terrible low rates. They're all the same - terrible low rates - so bad I have wrote it twice.

It is a disgrace that saving accounts pay such low rates and you have to keep switching year on year just to try and get 1%, what an insult.
