On a different note where is this wonderful Bankiter (sorry about spelling). I am fed up with the charges made by Banca March.
Hi Glynis

The address is:

Bankinter

La Plaza 12-14 11130 Chiclana de la Frontera, Cadiz, Spain.

It's in the centre of Chiclana, near the market square. I don't know how their charges compare with other spanish banks generally - we do get charged for some stuff. It's an internet bank. I'll pm you the name of the account manager to ask for.

Cindy

I don't get charged by Bankinter to receive a transfer from my British Account but of course the Bank here does charge me.
I was quite interested in whether HIFX have a minimum exchange amount. I have an account from when we bought our house and rang HIFX to see whether they will quote on small amounts. I was advised that although they don't specify a minimum amount, for amounts less than about 3,000 euro you are better off with a bank transfer. They don't want to deal with small amounts and whilst they wouldn't refuse it, you'd get a really low rate - I was advised that for something like £200 they would probably offer a non competitive rate, something like of 1.2 euro to the £ which is far lower than a bank. My understanding is that it's just not worth their while to deal with small amounts.
