"...bailed out banks especially RBS Royal Bank of Scotland; whereby 70% is in our ownership as shareholders. They even condoned the huge pay bonuses that have continued after the bail-out.

DisadvantagesToo many to list

The best of a bad bunch.

AdvantagesGood internet and telephone banking services.

DisadvantagesThe branch staff aren't very knowledgeable and bank charges are too high.

I opened up my student bank account with HSBC, but I differed back to RBS a few years ago and they are now my major banking provider. I would like to give you an overview of the services the bank offers and my opinion on its bank account and the general banking service. ..." Read review

"...an account holder with The Royal Bank Of Scotland. (RBS) I am happy overall with the way in which they help me handle my account, and I have no hesitations in recommending the RBS to anyone else. My Account ---------- I currently have a Route 21 Account, which is for people aged between 16-21.
