    They do still offer a savings/current account online platform - uk.virginmoney.com -> Sign in and then select what you need from there. Hopefully that works 
    If you want me to definitely see your reply, please tag me @forumuser7 Thank you.

    The credit card is app only.

    The current account and some savings accounts are both app and online.

    There is also a third online only website for some of the savings accounts.

    Virgin seems to have several different and separate online systems which is a bit of a faff as you have to choose login depending on what your sort code starts with.  Essentially I think the current account, and the new 3% ISA are all on the platform they inherited from Clydesdale. So counter-intuitively to get to the ISA you login in based on your current account details.
    However if you log into the correct place it's a fully functional web-based Internet banking system. My missus doesn't use the app at all for her account.

    thats good, i used to have a mortgage where i logged into virginmoney online. 
    so to set up a current account with savings could be easier than a new one with someone else.

    If you have any spare cash and ISA allowance, Virgin Money have an easy access flexible ISA paying 3.00% per annum, only for current account holders.

    Yes, it's a standard ISA with £20k per tax year, and flexible. I have been moving money in and out for several months now without affecting the £20k allowance.

    Depends how much you feel you need for emergencies. I use mine for everyday savings although in practice I deposit and withdraw 5 or 6 times per month.

    My emergency cash is in the aptly named Barclays Rainy Day Saver paying 5.00% for up to £5,000.00, with a further backup in Premium Bonds,

    Yes, because it's a flexible ISA meaning you can withdraw and pay back in within the same tax year without affecting the annual allowance.
