Find the app very easy, quick and responsive. Always thought this new disrupter banks, app based service etc was for younger people, but I'm in my 50s and loving how customer focused the whole experience is. Conventional banks can be hard work to deal with and very set in their ways (I know, I've worked for Citibank and HBOS) but Starling seems to be very forward thinking.

Refreshing change to banking

Great back that is not like the rest. Quick and simple to set up an account with an excellent app that allows you to do what you need to do. Heard a lot about Starling and have to say it is all true they are a Great Bank to be with.

Having business and personal accounts with other main UK banks, moving to Starling was by far one of the best decisions I’ve made in recent years. Customer service is second to nine, their tech is way ahead of everyone else in the market and not only that they are headed up by my hero Anne Boden who has created a proper, stable financial institution and not a digital hype made of straw like the other weak contenders!

I have nothing but praise for Starling Bank. Easy to open an account after a few but very necessary ID Checks. The App is very easy to use and all transactions can be sorted into categories either automatically or manually, so it’s very easy to keep a check on your spending. My experience with Starling has been 100% positive. I would Highly Recommend Starling Bank.

Ok, while I admit I haven’t tried every option available in my 40 years of running current accounts I have tried quite a few. First Direct have been brilliant but I think Starling has the edge. The app is great, it works with Fitbit Pay and Samsung Pay and the ability to draw out cash abroad with no fees is (or soon will be) a real winner.

What a great bank

I recently switched and am very impressed with the app and switching experience. In app features are very useful and user friendly. Easy to set up new payees and you can pay in cheques using the app too. Great!

Just what I needed

Having used Starling for my business I decided to try their current account too. It does everything I need from my phone. 21st century banking at last.

Great Account

Supert app, real time notifications and no fees even overseas makes it a must have account.

Still will not give me an overdraft

Pretty hard to treat Starling as a real bank when they won’t allow you to have minor banking products like others do.

Lacking

Was lacking in app features compared to competitors. I switched to Monzo as they offer way more as an e-bank.

Poor experience

Very little to distinguish it from competitors and offer real value. Just seems to be Anne Boden patting herself on the back constantly and trying to put other fintechs down....

Brilliant. The security is great, multilayer and not to complicated or restrictive. The app is well laid out, it's easy to see what's going on. The notifications are great, no more checking the bank as the app let's you know what's going on. Card controls are great. Customer service where quick to answer my questions as well. Took 1 and half working days get the account setup, and the bank cards can 2 days later. Just brilliant.
