Most direct banks in Germany check a potential customer’s income and creditworthiness before opening a checking account. This is the reason, why applications for an account by people who have not yet build a “credit history” are often rejected.
Both providers compared on this site do not do such checks. Therefore a successful account opening is practically guaranteed, if one is willing to pay the fees for the account in return.
If you know our special portal for some time, you know that we love to test the presented accounts and cards for ourselves extensively. This also applies to 100 % to our comparison of Schufa-free accounts.
By the way, this is the background, why one cannot find interminable lists of providers with us. We deal from the outset only with the subjective list of our most thrilling providers!
