Now could be a good time to start putting money away, with one website stating average rates have risen above five per cent for the first time in nearly 15 years.
Moneyfacts found that a person with a deposit of £5,000 by early September on an average one-year bond had a rate of 5.34 per cent. Meanwhile, the average one-year fixed-rate cash ISA paid 5.19 per cent and the average longer-term fixed-rate Isa paid 5.02 per cent.
The website defines longer-term accounts as those lasting more than 550 days. Levels such as this have reportedly not been seen since late March 2008 across the board.

Rachel Springall, a finance expert at Moneyfacts, said: “Savers may be delighted to see average rates reaching levels not seen since 2008. The average rates on one-year and longer-term fixed bonds and Isas all stand above 5% for the first time in almost 15 years (since November 2008).
“Due to intensive competition among challenger banks, average fixed-rates have risen for the past six months. This will come as good news to those who may be coming to the end of their fixed bond or Isa, as much higher returns can be found.
“The average one-year fixed bond rate was 2.29% in September 2022; it’s now 5.34% – on a £20,000 lump sum investment, that’s an extra £610 in interest after one year.”
Moneyfacts added that average access account rates and rates on account where some notice needs to be provided have also hit their highest levels since 2008. In total, the average easy access account rate rose to 2.95 per cent in September,
