Switching to First Direct is one of the best decisions you can make this year. A sister brand to HSBC, First Direct launched with a promise to do things differently. The result is a bank which consistently tops customer satisfaction polls and even offer £100 for switching over to their current account, provided you put in £1,000.
Finding out more about First Direct’s bank accounts is as simple as clicking the link above, where you’ll be taken to a page with all the information you could need. Whether you want to open up an award-winning current account and enjoy a £250 overdraft as standard.
First Direct telephone banking has greatly simplified their current accounts, offering just one basic current account with a host of features, including contactless payments, 24/7 world-class English customer service and much more. For a fee of just £15 per month, you can add worldwide travel insurance with Avivia, motor breakdown cover with AGA International, mobile phone insurance with Allianz, reduced charges for non-Sterling cash withdrawals and exclusive discounts!
The only potential downside is the lack of high street banking locations, but thanks to their close affiliation with HSBC, you can use their branches to do your high-street banking. Simple!
Taking out a mortgage is a huge decision to make, but with First Direct’s award winning UK based 24/7 customer service team and their extensive online tools, it’s never been as simple or hassle free as it is with First Direct.
Whether you’re looking to buy your first home alone or with a partner, buy a second property, re-mortgage your existing property or extend your existing mortgage, the First Direct mortgage page is where you need to be. Loaded with helpful tools, the page has everything you need to get going with your mortgage.
It starts with a super simple mortgage calculator which takes in the value of your property, the type of mortgage you want and other factors to find you the perfect mortgage. Alternatively, you can find out how much you can borrow using little more than the number of applicants and the combined salary of them.
The page also offers links out to their mortgage and rate types, their fees, the ways you can apply and guides to amending your existing online mortgage application. If you’d rather speak to a member of their customer service team, the links for their mortgage department are also available on the page.
