What's a SuperSaver Savings Account?
Our Supersaver Savings Account is a savings account that pays you interest and is linked to your ICICI Bank UK HomeVantage Current Account. You can only open a Supersaver Savings Account if you have a HomeVantage Current Account with us. The interest rate you earn might change from time to time, as notified by us. There are no withdrawal penalties with the Supersaver Savings Account – you can make a partial or full withdrawal from the account without attracting any penalty.
How do I operate my SuperSaver Savings Account?
Our SuperSaver Savings Account will help you earn great returns on your savings. You can move your funds whenever you like from your SuperSaver Savings Account to your ICICI Bank UK HomeVantage Current Account, and vice versa.

SuperSaver Bond is a savings proposition that can help you improve returns on your savings. Interest rates offered vary with the term and value of the deposit. You can plan your savings better by choosing a monthly, quarterly or annual payment of interest. The interest will be paid into your linked HomeVantage Current Account. The money you deposit is held for a fixed term at a fixed rate of interest. The funds are not available for partial withdrawal or early withdrawal except under extreme circumstances like in the event of death of the account holder or bankruptcy. We may apply a penal rate in all other cases.

How do I operate my SuperSaver Bond?
The saving term of the SuperSaver Bond commences when your funds clear in your SuperSaver Bond account, following satisfactory completion of all your documentation. When you set up your SuperSaver Bond, or at any time thereafter, you can ask us to reinvest your funds, for a further agreed term when your deposit matures. We should receive this request at least 15 days before your deposit matures. If you don’t ask us to reinvest your funds and you don’t give us any other instructions, we’ll transfer your deposit to your nominated linked current account.
A SuperSaver Term Deposit is a deposit account that pays you a fixed rate of interest for a fixed term. The interest rate you earn varies according to the term you choose, and the amount and currency of your deposit. You can open a SuperSaver Term Deposit for a term of six months and one year. If you close your account before it matures, you’ll incur a penalty of 1% on the interest rate for the time the deposit was maintained.
For example, if you open a SuperSaver Term deposit for one year and close it after six months, the rate of interest you would receive is the rate applicable for six months at the time of opening the deposit, less the 1% penalty charge.
