Smile New bank account in Tenerife

Probably been discussed before but does anyone know how to open a bank account in Tenerife, Los Cristianos area, and any recommendations as to a good bank to use. Thank you.

Walk into the bank of your choice with your passport and evidence of your address.

Thanks for trying but all I get is

Gateway Timeout

The gateway did not receive a timely response from the upstream server or application.

Additionally, a 504 Gateway Timeout error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

It matters not which address you use. If you already have a house on the mainland, presumably you already have a Spanish bank account registered there? Why would you want to open another in Tenerife?

If you do not have an account, it would seem sensible to open an account with a branch close to your main home.

Thank you for the advice with regard to my address and the reason I want to open an account in Tenerife is because my Spanish bank on the mainland does not have a branch there and for every transaction with an ATM there is a charge.

Maybe you want to consider switching banks?

I find Santander convenient. Their internet banking system is easy to use. They do not charge me for deposit, withdrawal, or ATM. I believe they have 6 branches and many ATMs on the Island. I found it particularly useful to be able to withdraw euros from my UK sterling account from any ATM at a good rate with no transaction charges when I was on holiday in Tenerife.
