Free independent support when moving to a new financial provider
February 19, 2021
With the announcement from Ulster Bank that they plan to withdraw from the Irish market, you may be wondering what alternatives are available to you. Our independent online Money Tools provide a one-stop-shop to help you compare current accounts, regular savings accounts, mortgages and credit cards.
Simply insert a few details and with the click of a button our tools will compare all major financial providers’ products and display them in a user friendly way.
You can compare:
- Current accounts – we will be able to provide you with all of the costs and benefits of a range of current accounts so that you can select the account that best suits your needs.
- Mortgages – we take the stress out of researching and comparing all the different mortgage options on the market. Simply insert:
• the value of the property,
• how much is left to pay on your mortgage,
• how many years you want to repay it over, and
• your current monthly repayment
You will then see all of your options including, any savings that you could make if you switch. You can also easily compare fixed and variable rates so that you can decide which is best for you. An important thing to be aware of is if you currently have a tracker mortgage you will not be able to get a tracker mortgage elsewhere, so you may need to remain with your current provider to keep this type of mortgage.
- Credit cards – interest rates can be very high on a credit card so making sure you are on the best rate can make a big difference to your pocket. Simply input your balance, how much you can afford to pay each month in repayments and the APR of your current card and we will do the work for you. We will even compare how long it will take to clear your credit card debt with your current card with how long it would take if you switched to a different card.
If you are a customer of Ulster Bank you do not need to take any action at this point. However, if you decide that you want to switch from your current provider, have a look at the information on our website about switching a current account, mortgage or credit card.
If you have any questions about these products or what your rights are when it comes to financial services in general, you can contact us through our dedicated helpline 01 402 5555, use our contact us page or contact us through our social media channels.Return to News
