Simple And Efficient

Great review from a user switching from a High Street bank to an app-based bank. It seems that the App is living up to its billing and helping people manage money better. Thanks for the review Tom

The Best App Ever !

Honestly! The best app ever for bank-related tasks! It makes it so easy for payments and transactions to new payees and the options for savings and overdrafts are huge advantages! Also, customer service is on point.
Great to hear that Starling Bank's customer services team is efficient and that you're enjoying the features they offer Michael.

Simple And Efficient

Using Starling Bank has been the best. Since I moved countries it was a struggle for me to consider a bank which would have my financial interest as their top priority. Coming from a country where you could not trust a place such as a bank I was hesitant to open an account. But with a few easy and guided steps, I got my account set up in minutes. I received my card 3 days before the due date so I was extremely happy. Since then saving and spending has been a breeze to check upon. Sending money via the app is the easiest thing ever. AND the absolute best was when I went on holiday abroad I could use my starling card WITHOUT any charges. It was fantastic. I recommend Starling to everybody.
Thanks for leaving a review, Marco. It's wonderful to hear that you've had such a positive experience with Starling so far.
