From slow walkers to standing on the right-hand side of the escalator, every Aussie has something that gets on their nerves. But if there’s one thing that makes eyes roll across the country, it’s bank account fees. And if your bank balance is currently being eaten up by pesky fees, there has never been a better time to ditch and switch.

Mozo recently announced the winners of its 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Deposit Account Awards, which aimed to highlight the products our experts felt were top notch, including bank accounts with zero fees. But if you aren’t too keen on long lists, we’ve rounded up some top winners that won’t eat away at your bank balance.
