We offer various accounts – personal, joint, business, euro and connected – each of which can be managed from your mobile or desktop. Features include instant payment notifications, insights into your spending habits, in-app card lock, a flexible overdraft and 24/7 customer support. There’s also the Starling Marketplace, which gives you access to a wide range of services and products from third party providers.

Plus, with a MasterCard Contactless Debit Card, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay, FitBit Pay and Garmin Pay, you can pay your way. Apply for our Personal Current Account in under five minutes, available for iOS and Android. Starling is a fully licensed bank fully covered up to £85,000 by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. We’re also connected to the Current Account Switch Guarantee, so switching couldn’t be easier. It only takes a few taps and we’ll manage the rest for you within seven working days.
