Offset mortgages make use of the money you have in your savings and current account to save you money on your mortgage. In other words, the more you have in these accounts the less you'll pay out in mortgage interest. On the plus side, your mortgage can be repaid in a faster time and other debts, such as credit cards, can be paid off at the same low interest rate as your mortgage. On the minus side, however, you should remember that you won't earn interest on your savings.
