A Fixed Rate Cash ISA is a type of tax-free savings account with a set interest rate. The term of the account will usually range from 1 - 5 years.

Is opening a Fixed Rate Cash ISA a good idea?

Can I withdraw money from my Fixed Rate Cash ISA?

With a Fixed Rate Cash ISA from Sainsbury’s Bank, partial withdrawals during the term of the ISA are not allowed. If you want to transfer all of the money in your account to a new ISA provider before the end of the term, it will be subject to an early closure charge. This is calculated based on interest and how many years early you close the account. See our Terms and Conditions for more information.  

Does a Fixed Rate Cash ISA have a high interest rate?

Fixed rate ISA interest rates vary depending on how long the term is fixed for, but it could have a higher rate than an instant access account. This is because the money you save stays in the account for the full term.
