Please fill in the form below to accept your friend’s referral, then download the Starling app to open your account. Once it’s opened, we’ll plant a tree.
To plant your tree, we’ve partnered with Trillion Trees; a joint venture between BirdLife International, Wildlife Conservation Society and WWF that aims to save, protect and re-grow one trillion trees by 2050.
Before we can get planting, we need a few details from you:

Thousands of people have switched to Starling…
Once you’ve opened your account, you have the option of making Starling your main bank account through the Current Account Switch Service (CASS). You’ll be able to see and manage all your finances in one place – and we’ll even transfer over any direct debits or standing orders you might already have. To start your switch, tap the top right icon to bring up the account menu and select ‘Switch to Starling’, then follow the on-screen instructions.
The CASS available for both personal and business accounts.
