Default Re: ADVICE FOR LOWER COST BANKING.

Just been skimming through this thread to see that most banks are jumping on the bandwagon with there unjustified charges.

We are with Santander and they charge us 35€ per quarter for account maintenance. Considering we pay less than lots of you, we never paid any charges when we signed up about 6 years a ago.

We do use them for all our DD’s (about 8) and for paying ad hoc bills and transfers. I guess 11€ a month is not that bad, but still begrudge paying for what we used to get for free.

I just dont get their modus operandi. I don't recall paying hardly anything when I had an account in Torrevieja from 1999 - late 2004. We have free banking here in UK. A mate in finland pays nothing for bank services, but Spain seems to have this god given right to fleece non residents who cannot pay a salary into the account.
I guess I've become a grumpy old git !!
