SAVINGS

Skipton International Online  provides an attractive and easy to use online interface where you may check your account details, check deposits have been credited to your account, the interest rate being paid, make withdrawals to your nominated account (generally customers set up their current account) or make and receive secure messages.

If you are uncomfortable with using internet based banking services we also offer a telephone option providing similar functionality to Skipton International Online, but obviously without the secure messaging feature. Telephone banking will be maintained throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
