"...TLC not PLC is Coventry Building society’s motto, and they’re right! Even though I’ve only had the pleasure of being with Coventry BS for a year now I am happy to admit they really are one of the more friendlier building societies left!

They mean it when they say "TLC not PLC"

AdvantagesGreat rates and a friendly, efficient service

DisadvantagesSometimes need to keep an eye out for bonus rates.

"The Coventry Building Society's motto is "TLC not PLC", which, for me, pretty much sums up its attitude. Like a true building society, it is owned by its members (it's a mutual society) and so has no share-holders. While this might seem quite a minor difference, it means that there are no big investors baying for huge profits at the expense of the customer, as could happen with the high street banks like Lloyds, HSBC etc. It also means that they are ..."

IT'S NUMBER ONE - IT'S TOP OF THE SOCS.

AdvantagesSmall, very efficient and caring, good interest rates!

DisadvantagesMainly located in the West Mids area.

AdvantagesGood cost mortgage

DisadvantagesNone

"...mortgage broker, was recommended a Coventry Mortgage. Having been with Britannia for years, I was a bit wary of moving to one without a branch within easy reach. I need not have worried. Everything has been as smooth as anyone would wish. If there are any queries, the helpline is answered quiuckly and always sorts things out straight away. Confirmation then follows quickly in the post. Issues that they have resolved for me include changing the ..." Read review

Efficient customer service

AdvantagesA mutual with good customer care

DisadvantagesNo branches near me

"I have a basic internet savings account, and I have been impressed with what I have experienced so far. The customer service is very good and very prompt. When I completed an application it was very simple and when I posted documents on a Sunday, they were back in my hand on the Tuesday - so credit to Royal Maill too. Whenever I have had the need to call I have spoken to a helpful person. I fund my account by a regular direct debit, tbough ..." Read review
