I opened a new savings account on the recommendation of my husband and found the whole process incredibly easy. The staff are really lovely and I like that you can actually talk to someone on the phone either at head office or in branch, and they still have high street branches. Overall, VERY impressed!

Having been a member since 2006, I wanted to open a new instant access account to join my Existing Member's Account and Notice ISA. All proceeded well, new account opened and then funded within a day of opening from my nominated bank account. A week later, message arrive into my inbox informing me that as I was opening a new account, NBS were unable to verify me as initial checks had come up with nothing. Could I please send ID to allow this account to be opened? As an existing member of 15 years I find that strange particularly as I'd been transacting on my EMA less than 3 months ago. I haven't forwarded the necessary ID. Will my new account get closed? I wait and see.

Hi Jo, thank you for letting us know and sorry that you have been frustrated by this procedures. Unfortunately all online accounts have automatic ID checks which provide prompts for us to check for various reasons to ensure that the transactions are authentic - it is a security measure. Our Savings Manager will contact you to advise of the details - but we appreciate this can seem confusing.

Hi Duncan, thank you for sharing such kind words with us - the Hungerford team will be so glad to hear this. Thank you once again.

Friendly Local Society

Easy to set up and run. Interest rates competitive but shame there are small maximum amounts on some accounts. Also wanted to transfer in ISA from another provider but no longer allowed. Very helpful with any query.

Opening new ISA

Easy to open account, although shame you cannot do it all 'on-line' without having to post forms off to them.

Helpful and friendly

Had trouble sending money to a new account I had opened but phoned up and it was all explained. The bank to pay is the Natwest which was a little confusing

Hi Levie - many thanks for taking the time to leave feedback - we appreciate it.

So nice to actually speak to somebody local.

I filled out an application form on line but had to be contacted a couple of times by phone and email. Each time the contact was from someone at my local branch, always prompt and friendly. Brilliant!

Registering on-line would be much easier

The process of opening a new account would be much easier on-line.

HI Clive, thank you for taking the time to leave feedback - we do have a number of accounts which can be opened online - happy to explain this further if you'd like someone to contact you. Many thanks

Opening account online

It was a simple process to open a new account online. There was a few days delay before details came through on how to transfer money into the account. I assume you would be able to pay money in immediately if you open in branch.
