It’s worth noting

In scenarios that are greater than one calendar month (60 days and 90 days), it is assumed that all interest and other charges are repaid by the borrower in full at the time they are charged. These are not capitalised and therefore, do not increase the interest incurred in a subsequent month.

Have you been affected by coronavirus?

As part of our Starling Coronavirus Support Scheme, we’re offering a three-month interest holiday on the first £500 of an arranged overdraft. Applications are open from 1 April 2020 to 31 October 2020. Acceptance is dependent on eligibility. As you head towards the end of your first 90 day interest-free period, you can apply to extend this for another 90 days.
