Three customers explain why they decided to break up with their old bank and switch to Starling.
Once you’re sure that Starling’s the one for you, request to switch in-app and we’ll handle the rest. Simply choose a switch date and then everything - your salary, balance, direct debits and payees - will start to move over seven days before that date, guaranteed through the Current Account Switch Service (CASS). Your old bank account will be closed and any payments made to that closed account will be redirected to Starling.
Remember, you can always try us out before deciding to do a full switch.
Senior web developer and Starling personal customer Olayemi Ajana first heard about the bank at an event run by the British Computer Society in February 2018. “Starling’s founder and CEO Anne Boden presented the bank and the app and told her story. I was intrigued by the banking infrastructure and IT and thought the business structure made for a very promising company,” he says.
“I thought it was a better option compared to my high street bank,” says Olayemi, 39.
