Tom Riley, director of Retail Products at Nationwide Building Society, said: “We appreciate it isn’t easy for people to save at the moment with the rising cost of living, but having money set aside that you can use for unexpected expenses can provide real peace of mind.

As a mutual, we are always keen to support savers and pay the best rates we can sustainably afford, which is why we are increasing rates on all variable rate accounts, including our popular Loyalty and Triple Access accounts.”

Many banks and building societies have increased their rates over the past year as the base rate set by the Bank of England has continued to increase.

The central bank has continued to increase the base rate in efforts to tackle high levels of inflation, which was at 10.1 percent in the latest figures.

Sarah Coles, head of personal finance at Hargreaves Lansdown, previously told Express.co.uk she is expecting another rates rise in early May.

She encouraged Britons to look at switching if they can a better rate on their savings. She said: “You could wait for rates to peak before doing this, but if your money is in an unrewarding high street account in the interim, you risk missing out on significant interest in the interim.”
