Transferring an ISA to my exclusive ISA

My account online

These ISAs are available exclusively for customers who hold certain current accounts with us. This means that they have different login details to our other Virgin Money savings accounts.

By using the new details, you’ll be able to see the Virgin Money Current Account you opened on or after 4 December 2019 (or originally opened with Clydesdale / Yorkshire Bank) alongside these exclusive ISAs.

As we’re currently bringing together Yorkshire Bank, Clydesdale Bank and Virgin Money to create one bigger and brighter bank, we don’t have all our products on the same system just yet. This means you won’t be able to see other savings accounts you hold with Virgin Money alongside your exclusive ISA right now.

Maturing accounts

At the end of the fixed term, we’ll move you to an Easy Access Cash ISA Exclusive - subject to eligibility of course. We’ll write to you at least 14 days before the end of the fixed rate period to confirm this. Check the Terms to find out more.

If you’ve closed your Virgin Money Current Account during the fixed rate period, you’ll be transferred to a standard Cash ISA.

Rate changes

If you have a 1 Year Fixed Rate Cash ISA Exclusive:

Your rate is fixed for the term of the account and won’t change until maturity.

If you have an Easy Access Cash ISA Exclusive:

The rate on your account may go up or down. If the account rate changes, we’ll let you know. If we reduce your rate, we’ll give you at least two months’ notice before it kicks in.
