What makes us different?

A great overdraft is a flexible overdraft

If you’re approved for an overdraft with Starling, you can adjust and lower your limit using the slider in app. You’ll pay interest on the amount you use, but we’ll let you know the rate payable as part of your overdraft application. And you won’t come up against any nasty unarranged overdraft fees either.

We won’t charge you fees when you spend abroad

Unexpected fees can ruin a perfectly good day — especially when you’re on holiday. That’s why we don’t charge you fees when you’re abroad — you’ll get the competitive Mastercard exchange rate and not a penny more (although do bear in mind that some ATM providers may charge you their own fees).
