Default Spanish Bank with English language online banking?

Which Spanish banks have English language online banking?

I heard BBVA and openbank do, but which others? Is it true that Santander online banking is only Spanish?

I'm sure Deutsche Bank have the English option as well. I use BBVA and their app is very good. A few of the options remain in Spanish but it's workable.

Sabadell Bank have an excellent online app all in English. I've been using their app for many years.

All their online Banking sites are in English if the setup is OK.

Nope. Its available in English.
You choose the language from the 3 choices up on the top right of the page.
Mine is always in English both on the Mac and my phone...

I see, thanks for clarifying about the Santander online banking. Are you happy with Santander overall?

Thanks, Sabadell offers no free online account though, right?

When it was a non res account, it was ok except for the monthly charges (although to be honest they were tiny compared to the charges we paid in the Uk for the business accounts..))
You could get round the charge at the time by putting a lump sum in (a large one) or buying one of the insurances or putting a set amount in every month... I just paid the charges as it was easier at the time, we didn't own property but I opened the account because we were visiting 4 times a year and I was working in Barcelona every so often.
We got round the charges once my wife opened her account by doing what the manager told me.

He said "make a transfer of the €650 to your account and then two days later, move it to your wife. Next month move it back and then a couple of days after move it again. Repeat every month as the computer is only looking for a deposit of €650 to cancel the charges"
So I did this for about a year and we never paid a cent in charges.

As a residents account Santander is no better or worse than any of the others.
We have been lucky because we have got to know one of the workers in the branch (Albir) and we have her direct email and phone number (her english is good as well). This alone is worth any amount of charges you might get.

I pay my Uk private pension into the account and then do the transfer to my wife's account, so I pay all the DD and the IBI etc and she takes care of the shopping and the other little bits. I don't move it back and still no charges.
Saves us €20 each a month...

We also have Aegon health insurance through the accounts and get 20% discount on the package (although Im planning on moving to Asssa later this year as it means we can use our local health centre and not go to IMED Benidorm)

To answer Yes we are happy.

Openbank does offer their website and app in English. I'm not sure if they can offer phone support in English though.

ING is Spanish only.
