Switch to Bank of Ireland UK

With the free Current Account Switch Service you can switch your current account to us in a simple, reliable and stress-free way which is backed by the Current Account Switch Guarantee.


The Current Account Switch Guarantee ensures your current account will switch on a day of your choice, your payments will be automatically transferred and redirected to your new account, and in the unlikely event anything goes wrong with your switch, we will refund any interest and charges (incurred on your old or new current accounts) as a result of this failure as soon as it is brought to our attention.

Full details about the Current Account Switch Service are available in our Current Account Switch Services booklet.

If you have a bank account that includes an overdraft you can switch to us using the Current Account Switch Service. And if you’d like to have an arranged overdraft, just speak to us before starting your switch. We will advise if you’re eligible for an arranged overdraft, dependent on our lending criteria and your credit status.

Plus you can apply for an interest free and fee-free arranged overdraft for a period of three months from the date you open your account, subject to our current lending conditions. If after the first three months you keep the overdraft normal banking charges will apply to it and interest will be charged at the then current rate.

If you would like to transfer your account to Bank of Ireland UK but leave your old bank account open, or if you cannot use the Current Account Switch Service, the Bank of Ireland UK Account Switch Service can go through all the steps needed to move your personal current account to us.

Switching your account to us couldn’t be easier: we will look after everything for you and keep in touch every step of the way.
