Volkswagen Bank raises interest rate substantially – 3.8 percent now paid on overnight money

Effective from 26 September

No maximum deposit limit and with extended deposit protection

Braunschweig 25 September 2023. Volkswagen Bank is once again significantly raising its interest rates for call deposit customers. With effect from 26 September, the Braunschweig-based financial institution is offering the "Plus Konto TopZins" account with an interest rate of 3.8 percent per annum. A completely new feature is that the interest rate applies without any limit on the amount. Combined with the advantage of the extended German deposit guarantee, Volkswagen Bank is now leading the way among German banks in the field of overnight or instant-access deposits.

These new top conditions apply to new customers who have not had an overnight deposit account with Volkswagen Bank in the last 12 months. After 6 months, the standard interest rate then applicable for overnight deposit accounts will take effect. Another advantage of the investment is that the interest is credited to the overnight deposit account on a monthly basis.

Volkswagen Bank also has something to catch the attention of those interested in a fixed investment period: starting from 5 October, it will offer fixed-term deposits with a minimum term of 90 days. In this case, both new and existing customers can benefit from a highly attractive interest rate starting from 3.0 percent per annum.
