    If the current provider is Virgin I wouldn't recommend you have any expectations of a smooth transfer to anywhere.
    My Transfer from Virgin to Nat West was as smooth as a babies bottom.
    That's because there are always exceptions to every situation, nothing is 100%. I'd call that lucky or if you look at interest rates, maybe unfortunate .

    Re lucky. - My wife also had a trouble free Transfer from Virgin so doubly lucky, I wonder how much data you are basing your negative view on.

    Re unfortunate - don't quite understand your point. I got a 5.9%1 year fixed with Nat west. Pretty good I think.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
