Euro savings account
Open a EUR currency savings account
EU nationals living and working in the UK or abroad, clients who own European properties or those being paid in euros should seriously consider opening a euro savings account with us. We offer a great range of euro savings accounts.
For a tiered savings account in euros, you could open an International Tracker Account. And for our best euro savings account for long term cash returns, it is worth finding out about our Liquidity Management Service, available for those with the euro equivalent of £1,000,000 or more to invest.
We also offer euro fixed-term deposit accounts, such as Treasury Deposits which offer a fixed rate of interest over a choice of terms. For more information on Barclays international banking euro savings products, which can all be held as offshore savings accounts, call us on

Euro currency savings - banking benefits
The first and most important benefit of euro savings is to reduce exchange risk and administration costs if your main assets or income are in euros. With certain savings products, like our Treasury Deposits, you are also protected from changes in currency interest rates, as you deposit your savings for a fixed term at a fixed rate.
Saving in euros may also give you the opportunity to take advantage of the relative strength of the euro against your home currency or other currencies.
Euro savings account options
We offer four main savings accounts which can be held in euros:
- Treasury Deposits
- Liquidity Management Services
- Currency Call Deposits
Our fixed-term, guaranteed interest rate deposit account. With competitive fixed interest rates that depend on the size and term of your deposit.
Liquidity Management Service
This service invests your money in funds, third party deposit accounts and fiduciary deposits. It's an excellent way to manage your cash as an asset. And, depending on your status, we could help you to structure the products you choose in a tax-efficient way*.
Currency Call Deposit Account
This is our instant access deposit account. Interest is paid on balances over US$3,000 (or its euro equivalent).
Euro savings account interest
For Currency Call Deposit accounts, interest is paid quarterly. Treasury Deposit interest rates are fixed when you open the deposit account and interest is paid on maturity. As the rates for these products change daily, please contact us for an indication of rates on these products.
