Tried to enable a series of card readers, all said the Pin on my card was locked - it wasn't. Phone support useless - they admitted they could not fix it (their script did not include my fault therefore it could not happen!). Even went into branch and despite the superb attitude and patience of the teller, it still would not work. They phoned the Complaints department - it was nice to note they have to wait as long as customers to get through. The person online was determind to "prove" it... (read more)

Vey poorly designed site. On the main personal screen, the details relating to my accounts are about 15% of the space. The rest is crammed full of links to their own "products", "my messages", a "quick transfers" box (why??) and other useless blurb. I did contact them a while ago with feedback and they "thanked" me for my comments. (read more)

This has to be the most terrible bank for customer service..the website has been down all day and not a word on their site as to when it will be fixed! Calling the service desk is complete and utter joke, all they could tell me is the site "might" be working by 6:30pm...what a surprise 6:30pm arrives and still the site remains down.. It's completely unacceptable behaviour and just show's how little respect RBS has for its customers. (read more)

It took RBS nearly three months to open my digital banking. In that time my debit cards were cancelled without them telling me. Eventually restored with many apologies. The helpline has every time I have phoned them given me advice which according to my branch is not possible. I won't bore you with the details but suffice to say that in my experience RBS are world class when it comes to giving verbal apologies but bottom of the class when it comes to customer service. A soon as I have... (read more)

I banked with the RBS for 18 years and thankfully decided to switch my accounts elsewhere.
Their online service is good in some cases, but the information on it in terms of account details was incorrect.
To add credit cards etc, you have to do this yourself other banks do this automatically etc.
Don't even start me on the card reader!! If they had made this optional, I would of been happy. However they insisted everyone had to use it, making life more difficult to complete the... (read more)

The RBS service is getting worse. I have tried for 2 days to reach my accounts via Digital banking without success. It just does not work AGAIN !My branch is of no help as telephone is not answered - quite normal as the last time I complained about this the (written) answer was " they were too busy " The time is rapidly approaching when transferring all my accounts to another bank is the only answer (read more)

I have used RBS internet banking for 10 years.
It is fast, simple, and always available.
I recently was given Power Of Attorney over my parent finances, and they bank with Alliance & Leicester.
I did not think any bank could be as bad as I have found Alliance & Leicester to be. I have lost Internet access to the Alliance & Leicester accounts 3 days ago. After dozens of attempts to speak to their help number, the person I spoke to COULD GIVE NO TIMESCALES FOR RESTORING THE ACCESS.
I did not... (read more)

I have repeated access problems. I seem to fail security again and again, so I spend more time barred from the service than using it. We found one problem was that the user number they gave me was a digit short. That was not the only problem though, and tonight I am having problems again. I never have a problem with the Coop Bank where I also have Internet banking. (read more)

I have been a member of RBS for over 20 years.-----for personal Banking , I have found them very helpful,and always pleasant.
I already have suggested to several friends that they should change to the
Royal Bank of Scotland.
I was very upset over the Banking scandals ,but was relieved to see the ex boss did, eventually,take less Pension.
Considering the large losses they made, the Bonus' seemed unbelievable.
They however were not the only offenders.
I would still recommend their services. (read more)

I generally access the site from an overseas location and, for whatever reason, a difficulty developed in gaining access. It started with just a small difficulty and developed to the stage where i could not access RBoS site at all.
I had some incredibly great tech advice which sorted out the problem - they called me and took me through, step by step, how to identify where the access problem lay and i've never had another access problem. They were brilliant. Top marks RBoS. (read more)

RBS is a pretty good on-line banking tool. It gives clear info, is nearly always fully up to date. I like the fact I get all my accounts in this one tool. I log in and use it a lot.
Uptime is very impressive - I've never not been able to log in and occasionally I see messages saying it'll be down from midnight Sunday until 4am Monday for maintenance - suits me I won't need it then!
Speed is also very good - always quick to log on and navigate.
Login is good and easy - a meaningful login... (read more)

I would highly recommend using the RBOS Internet service. Like someone has mentioned already if you're having any problems you can call someone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, and you internet log in details are the same for telephone banking. Brilliant! (read more)

The Royal Bank of Scotland Internet Banking website has clear screens and simple to use menus.
Log in could be more secure by having drop down selections to negate the use of key loggers. It should also be limited to one page rather than 4. The DD menu is really irritating - it always shows your DD, even ones cancelled from 2 to 3 years ago. I can't change my address or personal details online, and there is no secure messaging.
The website has real limitations. Egg for example has... (read more)

7 years ago I took out a Virgin One Current Account morgage at 66% Loan to Value, with repayment of Interest Only as far as the RBOS are concerned. This is really just a great big loan facility to be used as I wish - no fixed mortgage per month, as long as I do not breach the loan facility ceiling.
Consistently over paid, that is I ensured income exceeded outgoings over the long view, with fluctuations of underpayment compensated one or two months later by substantial overpayment.
Now my... (read more)

I'm surprising myself to be praising my bank but quite honestly I use Royal Bank of Scotlands internet banking nearly every day and highly recommend it.
My wife uses Barclay's online banking and it's having compared it to that I stand by my recommendation. RBS is much clearer than Barclay's and quicker to navigate your way around. (read more)
