Savings Guru Verdict

Zopa offer 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 Year Fixed rates via a quick and easy online application, with savers able to manage their money online, via Zopa's mobile and telephone.  They've been consistently in our fixed rate bond best buys since launch and, as of May 2021, have the highest Trustpilot score for any bank from customer feedback.  Although they have been around for 16 years, they are still in their first year of launch for savings, we expect to see much more from them as they develop their savings business.  We like their promise that savers 'get a fair deal as standard.' One to watch.
