I liked 2 things: the free EU/UK travel insurance and the sign on bonus one-year ago, but these aside, it offered little better than a standard account. They touted a Plus Saver account which only offered about 0.5% interest, and I experienced slow customer service when transferring sums over £25,000. As it's not my main current account, I lose £5 per month unless I deposit at least £500.

Last week I downgraded to a standard current account and will have to wait and see.
I happily killed the so called "Plus Saver" account and transferred to A&L's Online Saver Account Issue 5 which has 3.15% interest (gross p.a./AER variable including bonus).

I also won't miss the included travel insurance because I found a good bargain on more comprehensive EU + worldwide travel insurance.
