As mentioned in the other thread, there are better cheaper options out there.

As pointed out in the MoneySavingExpert link, the Halifax clarity credit card wins hands down for me. I have been using it since many years now and is perfect. No charges for using abroad, nor any charges for withdrawing cash. Works out at around £1/month in interest per £100 withdrawn.

Also spend £300 and you get £5 cashback (which works out roughly 1.6%).

The only thing you need to do is call the customer service before you leave and tell them that you are travelling and you will use the card in another country. They will then remove the restriction for that country (to avoid fraudulent use).
better rate for euros on fairfx
Best rate for Polish Zlotys anyway.
Not a particularly good rate for Turkish Lira - the same is available from other online sellers such as Travelex etc.

Depends on the exchange rates i'm guessing not that good - You can get a taste card for £29.99 though with codes and it's not worth £80.

In fact for £30 you might lose that on the exchange rate you get!

no indian rupees .. ?? why yaar ??
Because you can only get them in India its a closed currency

They offer Indian Rupee prepaid travel card. The taste card is available even on that. Check out their website http://www.icicibank.co.uk/personal/travel_card.html
Better of taking uk pounds changing over there you get some great rates in some odd places even at the airport some times
I have done loads of research and found them to be offering the best rate for mexican peso.
I have ordered using my bankcard, a bank is not going to rip you off in these circumstances.
I am very happy I am getting a free tastecard as I have a 3 month deal on one that is about to expire, I have saved loads using it and was planning to buy one anyway.
I use them constantly, the service is very good and the rate is even better today. Looking forward to visit Budapest :p
Hi Guys and Gals - the other thing that you NEED to do is vary the number of Euro or Dollars or whatever you are thinking about buying as the best value company changes - not often by a lot but some surprising variations do appear.

For example, try putting 500 Euro into the MoneyMax site for delivery and then 600 Euro and ICICI move from best to third place. Not so relevant if you actually want the Taste Card. ;)

hmmm a bit suspicious - the rate dropped at 0915 from 1.2035 to 1.1984 - If it now goes back to 1.2035 in the sale I will be cross.

I think market moved down. Check http://www.travelmoneymax.com

If you look at xe.com you can see there has been a decline, but nowhere else has reacted so quickly to the shift, and not when they've marketed a sale.

I think this bank is one of the best Indian bank giving the best interest rates for fixed deposit.


Great rates but appalling customer service. Can't wait to get my money back after my one year deposit and move it to, probably, a lower rate but actually get a decent response from the company. AVOID.
bansalma;5412262
why cold, any reason?


Stupid business practices.
My fixed rate bond matures on 6th May, 09.
I received a call from them asking if I wanted to renew @ 4%.
I agreed.
On Wednesday the rate dropped to 3.75%.
I was told I would get 3.75% instead of the agreed 4%.
I said, I wanted cancel the renewal as I still had 1 day to go.
They said, I could not, as I was required to provide 2 days notice.
I was never told of such nonsense. Agreed interest rate not provided,
unable to cancel.

They kept saying my name in every sentence they spoke and
believe email addresses are email IDs.

Aweful service, and aweful attitude.
Sounds like a good deal to me. Private message me if you an account. I'm up for it.

Yeah true, but you can handle accounts online these days so not much need for calling them up. They also offer 4.35% AER for 2 years.

Looked at the Coventry building society site and can only see 4% on bonds till August 2010...


Thts true ..I second you opinion..:whistling:
On flip side, I have had account with ICICI for several years with no problem. Money has transferred within usual 3-4 days and one time I needed telephone help with password, agent was helpful. I don't make many transactions as it is a savings account but I have been satisfied with the service received. Can only speak as I find, obviously others seem to have had problems.

Glad you enjoy dealing with iCICI. Many others do not. try Googling the phrase "Customer Service" with ICICI and you will see what I mean. The complaints come from all over the world, wherever ICICI have a presence.

The much respected and independent financial website "This is Money" states: "ICICI. This is Money verdict: The bottom line is that your money is protected by the FSA and the rate is good. But we're reluctant to recommend an institution that does not meet minimum customer service standards and that routinely takes eight working days for funds to be transferred. We've heard so many mixed stories about ICICI that we urge caution. We agree with Susan Hannums. Stick with what you know until their UK record is better established." Found on http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/saving-and-banking/article.html?in_article_id=406192&in_page_id=7

An independent viewpoint, I think, that confirms my own experiences.


Never questioned your viewpoint, or doubted your experience. I just found it amusing how you ended it with "Third world country=Third World Service"! I like it!! I should start grouping over a billion people with the service of a Bank!!

Most of the bulding societies have call center operations both in the UK and the so called 'third world economies'. It is very convenient to lambast the Indians for their poor customer service when it's this very savings in cost which is keeping many of these building societies alive!!!

If you're going to go for this I'd advise the Quidco route - if ICICI are as incompetent at administering this as everything else they seem to do, a hapless subscriber will be chasing for months. No exaggeration; I'm on my 5th hour long call to their customer services after they managed to ba*ls up every aspect of my credit card. They are an absolute shower.
Well spotted Edi :thumbsup:

Hello all, first post so please be gentle.

I've been looking to open a high interest savers account for a while and can't decide which bank to go with. I almost signed up with Bradford & Bingley until I read some of the comments about them on these forums. If I had around £5k to invest, where would you suggest I take my savings?


Have you got an isa and is it full? If not get one of those

I would suggest using the one with the highest rate which is this bank currently.

Use [url]www.moneysavingexpert.com[/url] to keep up to date on who pays the highest interest and use them.

You will have people on hear who have had problems with all banks (including myself) but the overiding thing is the cost to your pocket. Take the highest rate!

I've had many different Bank and Building Society high interest accounts within the last 2 years. I can honestly say that I've had from day one and at present, many more problems with ICICI than any other. I would advise to forget about ICICI and look elsewhere for the next best rate. They are the most incompetent Bank I've ever encountered.
That only works if the interest rate (BoE) stays the same or goes up.
For those brave stoozers out there (if you are a non tax payer) you can borrow money elsewhere for about 6.7% and therefore make a good profit with someone else's money.

Right, this account is for current HISave customers (which makes a change).

It's a fixed rate of 5.65% which may be good, may not be depending on base rates and how they move, though it's pretty likely they will move up and not down or stay stagnant.

It's a fixed rate for 6 months at 5.65% Gross. So say you put 5k in there, to earn the 5.65% gross you would need to leave that 5k deposit there for the full 6 months and not touch it. If you do touch it and withdraw, it will revert back to the standard 5.45% rate you get with your standard HISave savings account.

So it won't mean much on 5k. This slight increase, to me anyway, would be more worth it for the savers with 100k plus.

On 5k, your looking at getting back £141 GROSS at the end of the 6 months using the 5.65 bond. If you use their standard savings account, £139.

These are rough figures.

However, change that to 100k, £2794 at their standard 5.45% rate and £2899 at their 5.65% rate. So it's the amount you have as to whether it's worth jumping to it.

It IS a good bond. NO penalties for withdrawing, you just lose that interest rate and revert to something 0.20% worse. However, this is at TODAY's rates.

This is not like any other bond out there. The poster about saying A&L's direct saver, well, you lose a whole months interest when you make a withdraw, don't matter if you withdraw £100 out of £100,000, you lose interest on the whole sum, so that's worse in this case.

Your money is NOT fixed.

The only downside to this for some people is the interest is added on at the end of the 6 months, not monthly.

This Is Money has warned about this bank several times. See article at http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/saving-and-banking/article.html?in_article_id=406192&in_page_id=7

The main problem is poor customer service (cash transfers take more than twice as long as with other banks) and the fact that Icici is not compliant with the UK Banking Code.



One to avoid, I'd say.


I've had an account since March 2006 at first took 3-5 Days to transfer between different banks now down to 2 Days which is on par with must others Customer service is slow to respond but aren’t they all
They are covered by the FSA compensation scheme, which means that the bulk of your savings up to £32,000 are protected.

the average length of time it takes for a transfer to arrive from the saver's current account to their HiSave account is eight working days.
This is compared to three days with most online accounts, meaning that savers lose around a week of interest every time they do a transfer.

May be worth waiting until next Thursday to see if interest rates increase again (MPC meeting) in which case ICICI may increase there savings account to 5.65% I agree with you everylittlehelps it is one of the best instant access deals around at the moment
