Bank charges: 'Most annoying little rip-offs' revealed

What people consider to be the most annoying 'little rip-offs' has been revealed, which may come of interest to people currently paying bank charges.

Personal finance and investment news website MSN Money has revealed that the small charge people get most annoyed about paying is being charged extra for not paying by direct debit, which gained 17 per cent of the vote.

Simon Ward, senior editor of MSN Money, commented: "At a time when every penny counts, it's clear that most of us are fed up of these little rip-offs, which ultimately all add up.

"While some are avoidable, many are not, which makes them all the more galling."

The second and third most annoying small charges were premium rate phone numbers and the price of food and drink at the cinema respectively.

Also in the list were additional flight fees, insurance policy amendment fees and temporary 'bonus' savings rates.
