This week: student bank accounts, online banking security and using your debit card abroad

In today's podcast we take a timely look at student bank accounts.  With students having received their 'A' level results last week many will be looking forward to going to university this autumn.  Choosing a student bank account might not be high up on their list of priorities but Nick Cheek, Which? Money Deputy Editor, urges them to choose carefully and not be drawn in by freebies.  He talks about our latest analysis of student bank accounts and picks the best of the bunch. 

Also this week, Mel Green, Principal Money Researcher, takes us through her latest research into online banking security. Find out which banks scored best and worst and what your rights are if you're a victim of bank fraud. 

Finally if you're about to jet off on your summer holidays, don't miss our money saving tip of the week which could save you money if you plan to pay by debit card when you're abroad.
