Discounted variable rates are a cheaper option, however, lender’s SVR changes would mean your interest rate will change as well.
Lastly, there is an offset mortgage. This provides you with an interest-free, flexible savings account to make up for the balance of the mortgage. The bigger your savings are, the less interest you pay on your mortgage.
