So easy to keep track of my money and using abroad with little cost is a great benefit!

Both current account and joint accounts are really straight forward to use and set up and allow me to keep track of all my spending and bills

Great bank, so easy and quick.

I'm off to USA in Feb, and Starling was recommended, as an alternative to travellers checks, or loads of foreign currency, so I decided to set up an account. It was great so quick and easy to do, and easy to use.

Great account, no unfair charges

Love the instant notifications on the app the fairer overdraft fees (only interest) and being able to use the debit card abroad with no extra charges. My experience with customer service team has been good overall, well done Starling!

Great bank to use daily and learn your spending behaviour

I wish I could also access it from my laptop.. But a part of that I'm very happy with the account. They pay interest on the money you have monthly (0.5 which is little...but my high street pays...

I wish I could also access it from my laptop.. But a part of that I'm very happy with the account. They pay interest on the money you have monthly (0.5 which is little...but my high street pays zero!)

App is sleek and beautiful. Icons of spending categories are beautiful and are great for a person like me who is very visual.

Everyone has time for real-time

A modern mobile bank for the modern digital age. Gone are the days (and days!) of 'pending' transactions over the weekend so you have no idea how much money you've actually got. No more horrible flimsy 'card readers' to authenticate with. The whole experience has been frictionless for me so far, and I feel like I'm along for the ride already. Cheers Starling, keep it up!

This is how banking should look

In simple words it’s how all UK banks should work, just perfection so far I had few currrent accounts and Starling is the most Modern and Easiest Bank I have used so far. Try it yourself im sure you won’t regret it. It’s free with few clicks

Brilliant. Been using them a little over a month. No issues. Everything is very clear, nice and easy to open the account. Arranged overdraft fees have such small charges. Love that everything all notifications and everything are in actual real time. The interest earned I've also found is actually better than the high street banks. The only reason I still have my high street bank is the blue rewards, coz I basically get 3 quid a month for nothing from them. Would have moved fully to starling I'd it wasn't for that. But I just get my blue rewards and move almost everything to starling because it is just better and easier to use

My Starling Bank account is the best account I have ever had. Initially opened as it was rated best for people going on holiday and being able to continue daily life as usual with regards to payments, withdrawing cash etc, I now use this account for everything. In this busy, busy life we are all leading now, to not have to stand in a queue in the bank or jump through hoops when trying to speak to someone at “internet banking” is so refreshing. Customer Service is far superior to any other and issues have been resolved in a super speedy manner and all whilst continuing to work. I love my starling account and can’t wait to see what other innovative plans they have for the future.

SImple changed my whole outlook on banks

Having a bank that works, has morals and ethics and doesn't charge the earth for everything you do I thought was a pipe dream until I tried Starling Bank. I was sceptical at first, no branches, mobile-only.... but have now made the switch to using it...

Having a bank that works, has morals and ethics and doesn't charge the earth for everything you do I thought was a pipe dream until I tried Starling Bank. I was sceptical at first, no branches, mobile-only.... but have now made the switch to using it as my main bank. With zero fees for using the card abroad, cash or purchases, minimal overdraft costs, great customer service there simply isnt a bank on the high street that comes close to Starling.
