Current account switching levels surged by more than 70% in the first three months of this year, compared with a year earlier, according to a service that makes it easier for banks’ customers to ditch and switch.

The Current Account Switch Service (Cass), which has been running for nearly a decade, said it has facilitated 9.1 million switches in total, since launch.

Its latest figures show 341,075 switches took place between January and March 2023, marking a 73% jump on the same period a year earlier.
