Switching your banking to us is simple and hassle free. RBS is part of the Current Account Switch Guarantee scheme, so you can move your banking to us in just 7 working days.
Our switching service is designed to work around you. We can switch your current account in just 7 working days, we'll transfer all your regular payments like Direct Debits, standing orders and bill payments and let you choose your own switch date.
We'll also arrange for your old account to be closed, transfer the balance if you've got any money leftover and forward or redirect any payments after your switch date to your RBS account for 13 months. So there's no need to worry about payments going to the wrong account.
Our experts team will do all the legwork behind the scenes, we'll keep you up to date on how your switch is going, with texts and emails and we'll give you a special phone number so you can ask questions whenever you need to.
To help you while you switch, we offer a 3 month interest free overdraft from the date your account has been opened (over 18s only and subject to eligibility).
The first step is to find the right RBS current account for you
Then apply online and follow the instructions for switching. If you already have a RBS current account, just complete the online switching form.
The Current Account Switch Service will redirect payments to your new account for 13 months from your switch date. For some card payments you will need to provide your new card details to the business (e.g. Amazon) in the same way as you would now if your card expired and you were issued with a new one.
The Current Account Switch Service is backed by the Current Account Switch Guarantee. This guarantees that any charges or interest incurred on your old or new account, as a result of a failure in the switching process will be refunded when you bring this to our attention.
No, providing you repay any outstanding overdraft(s) on your previous account(s) as required by your old bank or building society. If there are any problems with payments (as part of the switching process) we will correct them and ensure your credit rating is not affected.
The Current Account Switch Service is for current accounts only (including basic bank accounts). If you would like to switch other account types, such as a savings account, you will need to ask if we are able to help you do this.
