At Starling, we want as many people as possible to experience the Best British Bank 2019 – so we decided to make our mobile bank account available to young people, too!
If you’re 16 or 17 years old and like the sound of managing your own money and a little more independence, just download the app and apply for a bank account online in less than five minutes. Best of all? You can do it all on your own.
A little more freedom
Apply for a bank account of your own in less than five minutes.
Set it up by yourself – no parent permission or branch visits here.
Use your phone to buy your favourite things with Apple, Google or Samsung Pay.
Manage your own money
Track where your cash goes with Spending Insights.
Save for the stuff you really want with Goals (it’s better than under your bed!).
Get instant payment notifications and lock and unlock your card in app if you think you’ve lost it.
Pay for stuff
Send money to friends instantly.
Split the bill with friends or send a payment link to pay and get paid back quickly.
Or pay people if they’re close by with Pay Nearby!
Peace of mind
Safe and sound. Don’t worry – your money is protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) in the unlikely event that anything goes wrong.
If you’re up, so are we. Our customer support team are on hand 24/7, in-app, whenever you need us.
