Best Bank Account...

So... if I'm going to be doing the claiming back and want a new emergency bank account... who is best to go for?

Is online a good plan, or a real proper bank?

I'm at the same stage as you (ie thinking about it but not actually done anything)
I've opened a back up account with alliance and leicester, as recommended by the moneysaving expert website. Can be operated online, but is also a real bank.

Can;t remember who they are who our shared account is with - think it is nationwide - DH said they are going to go public or something soon he thinks and we will get payout - not sure if new members will but maybe worth a punt!!

Oh. Thats Jas. Thought I might be in for some free money then, but sadly not!

Twinkie - if Nationwide go public it will be the end of the world as we know it. (Current account holders wouldn't get a payout even if they did though - only investors and people with mortgages).

Can't tell you a good one, but don't go to Intelligent Finance. I've got an account with them and they're unbelievably difficult to deal with. When I lost my card I couldn't cancel it because you can't just phone up and tell them tne accoutn no, you need the plan no, the jar no, mother's shoe size, etc etc. They're crap.
