“Haggling is really important especially with companies with call centres,” Martin said.

“Always be polite, always charm, they don’t have to have you as customer – this isn’t about aggression, you want them on your side,” Martin advised.

He suggested saying: “I’m sorry that’s too expensive, I’ve checked elsewhere you’re more expensive than the competition.”

Martin also revealed the top fixed savings accounts for high rates on savings, and there are two that he recommends in particular.

Martin Lewis has revealed two savings accounts he particularly recommends for those looking to lock their money away for a rainy day.

Appearing on This Morning last month, the 44-year-old financial expert recommended the OakNorth Bank and Paragon Bank.

The expert revealed that rates for fixed saving accounts are higher now.

Martin said: “Savings rates have been dire the past few years, and a couple of weeks ago I mentioned one of the best ways to earn ‘high’ interest is by fixing your money (so you can’t access it), as then the highest one-year fix was 1.8 per cent and two-year fix was 2 per cent with Atom Bank.
