Flexible ISAIssue 4, which is replacing Issue 3, not only offers peace of mind through a minimum rate guaranteed, it also allows easy access to the money without notice or penalty.  The account is designed to encourage people to save tax-free and make the most of their annual cash ISA allowance.

Reza Attar-Zadeh, Director of Santander Savings and Investments said: “Flexible ISA offers savers the best of both worlds for the first 12 months; a rate that tracks changes in the Bank of England base rate as well as a guaranteed minimum return for additional peace of mind.  Added to that is easy access, so savers can get their money when they need it.  All in all, a great combination of benefits for a cash ISA with a competitive tax free return.”

Savers can apply in any Santander branch, over the telephone by calling 0800 234 6065 and by visiting the Santander website at

Flexible ISA Issue 4 is available for new ISA subscriptions and does not allow transfers-in of existing ISA money.  Santander offers competitive Fixed Rate ISAs and a Direct ISA Issue 7 for customers wishing to transfer in their existing ISA money.
