I have been with the bank for roughly 16 years. More recently I have been given conflicting information over the phone as to what I'm told in the branch and ended up having to make several complaints, more so in the past few years. The service has put me off and I am considering changing banks. The issues have been simple really with more recently updating my address. Shouldn't be hard in this day and age.

I have had various RBS accounts through the years. RBS is the financial rock most of Britain is built on. My current account is built into a mortgage product that used to belong to Virgin and was sold to RBS. I love my current account as it feeds my mortgage (beast) and suites my needs. RBS staff members are helpful - what more can we ask for.

It was hassle free when changing banks. I get advice on how to get the best for my savings. They are also local and have very friendly staff. I had been with previous bank for over 30 years but was becoming very unhappy with the way I was being treated. Decided to move. Everything was done very efficiently. They did everything for me. All I had to do was sign some papers and everything was done. The customer service has been first class.

This royal bank savings account does not pay the highest rate of interest but links in well with my RBS current account. Moving money between savings account and current account is very easy via the online banking service. It is also able to set up savings goals, working out how much you need to save each month in order to hit your target.

The RBS has always treated me fairly in all my dealings with them. They helped me with a good overdraft facility & are always trying to get me to review my account to make it work better for me. The staff are always friendly & try their best to be accommodating. Lunch times can be a pain as staff numbers drop. On the whole they seem a good company to trust with my money 7 have always given good advice

It's ok but unexciting. It's just a place to put your money and watch it do nothing. I've had it for a long time and when I was first with them I had some money problems and they were very very good at helping me out. Now I'm settled and on a financial even keel, it's not really enough. I need to change it to something that pays interest.

They don't keep calling and trying to sell you stuff

It doesn't make my money work.

RBS has had a lot of bad press but when it comes to its current account, this is unwarranted. The current account does everything that you want. There is a online banking facility which allows you to pay bills directly. The online service is generally available all day every day. RBS is adding functionality all the time - only today I discovered that I am able to access all of my statements for the past seven years online.

It does what it says it will

Recommended by loricp

I've had my current account for over 10 years with RBS and have not had any significant issues with them during this time. I use both online and telephone banking and always find the customer service support satisfactory. My app on my phone allows me to quickly check my balance, and I can transfer money easily to regular payees. whenever I need to visit a branch I never have to spend long in a queue and alwasy find the service good. Recently Overdraft bank changes have changed which means I get charged a fixed amount as soon as I enter into the red. I have been used to having a small free overdraft and find this new approach frustrating.
