Current account switching service

Current account switching service

I would be more inclined to use it if it did not actually close my existing account.

I would think more people would use it if it did had the option to switch, but leave the account open.

Unfortunately, that’s how CASS operates and it’s outside Monzo’s control. The alternative is to transfer Direct Debits, Standing Orders etc manually.

You could always open an extra account with your current bank, then switch the other account.


Tried that with Barclays but they instantly online refused the request for an extra current account and did a hard credit check anyway.

Weird. I’ve opened 5 with them over the past few months, always been an easy 5 min process

There used to be a partial switch but it was removed :slight_smile:
