Nice and Simple

Basic bank account is good and online banking is simple and easy to use. No fee for account, no interest...I have no experience of overdraft so no idea about this side of the account. Lots of branches with, in my experience, helpful staff and plenty...

worst customer experience trying to open a bank account. I have crossed international borders with my temporary passport without any problems but HSBC for some reason won't accept it?! all government institutions, including the British government, have accepted my passport since it is a valid, government issued passport so HSBC had no valid reason deny me a bank account. When asked what the issue is, their employee said: the tenure of your passport. However, they accept non-temporary passports that expire at the same time as my temporary passport so that obviously doesn't constitute a valid reason.

Plus, after completing one of their online applications for a bank account, I waited for 3 weeks for a phone call to arrange a meeting but that never happened. then, i had to call myself and start completing the form via phone, AGAIN! so why do they even have the option of online applications if you never attend to your customers anyways?!

Conclusion: horribly bureaucratic without any solid reasoning behind it.

Overall, a pretty good bank to have an account with

Good options for interaction and communication but fewer and fewer branches as time progresses.

Whilst telephone and online services are convenient it can be challenging when you do need to speak to k wine as you often get passed around internally.
