First in line

First Direct is a bank like no other. So easy to deal with . Always helpful and not in a pushy way.

I have banked with 1st Direct for 17 years and cannot fault it. If I need to telephone them the call is quickly answered by a person, not an automated machine. That person can usually deal with almost all queries and if I have to be transferred there is no delay. The staff are always friendly, helpful and efficient. The Internet banking site is very secure,easy to negotiate and clear to understand. The monthly saver account currently offers the best interest rate of any other bank.

A really good introductory offer and excellent service

5% interest for a year is untouchable. A great welcome offer for opening a new account. They are also a very well established internet bank, so have lots of experience and innovation behind them.

First direct provides simple but reliable service

I have been with first direct for the past two years with not even a single issue at all. They are so welcoming and easy to work with. I can always find the right products that fits my needs with them.

My bank messed up - they had inputted some details wrong about a direct debit that should have been entering my saving account, meaning I had not been saving as much as I thought. On discovering this they were fantastic at putting it right with minimal fuss and ensuring I did not lose out in any way. Super Bank - friendly staff on the phone.

Simple and easy

Does exactly as advertised, switched earlier this year and couldn't be happier as it is a vast improvement on my previous savings account.

Better than the rest

A human with a pulse always available 24/7 if any problem arises I,e. 63 year old often forgets passwords, log ins, highly trained staff with "we can help " attitudes and in my experience always do makes online banking a pleasure if any problems arise.
