If you’re awake, so are we
We’re a 24/7 operation, so you’ll be able to get in touch with our all-star, all-human customer support team through the app, email and phone whenever you need a hand.
We’ve got this
Your money is covered up to £85,000 by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. And when it comes to your security, money and personal information, we don’t take any chances.
You’re in control
You’ll manage exactly what your card can do. A simple toggle controls whether your card can make, say, ATM payments, or pay for gambling transactions.
Lock your card in-app with a single tap if you think you’ve lost it, unlock it if you find it again, or cancel it with a tap if it’s gone for good.
Mobile cheque deposits
Deposit cheques up to £500 from your mobile. Take a clear photo in the app and once accepted, the funds will appear in your account within two working days.
Connect your account to the digital wallet of your choice, from Apple Pay and Google Pay to Samsung Pay, Fitbit Pay or Garmin Pay.
Split the bill
Sharing costs with family and friends? Get paid back easily or split the bill with Settle Up; no sort codes or awkward texts; just a few taps, a link and you’re settled up.
Send money abroad
No need for extra apps or services; instead, send fast and transparently priced money transfers to over 35 countries worldwide. Plus it’s cheaper than most high-street banks
Get the complete picture.
Starling is most powerful when it’s your main bank account. The Current Account Switch Service makes it simple and hassle-free to transfer all your payments over to Starling, so you can streamline your finances in our banking app and get total visibility over your money.
Don’t just take our word for it
Independent service quality survey results
As part of a regulatory requirement, an independent survey was conducted to ask approximately 1000 customers of each of the 19 largest personal current account providers if they would recommend their provider to friends and family. The results represent the view of customers who took part in the survey.
