Some platforms will talk about free elements of their service, and some are indeed very cheap, but no service is completely free of charges.

You can open accounts with different styles of provider if you wish and you are allowed to open multiple types of accounts too, although there will be annual and lifetime allowances for SIPPs, and annual allowances for ISAs, of which you will also be unable to open more than one in a single tax year.
