Remember that these tend to be online or telephone services only, so you wouldn't have a local branch to go to or deposit cash into the account.

Below are some links to such providers - please check their terms and conditions carefully to ensure that these banking solutions can meet your needs and that they are regulated by a recognised financial regulatory body (e.g., the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK). If you are concerned about how the banks in your country perceive digital banks as affecting your credit score, please check with them before opening one.
