Hi, Can anyone please advise the best bank to use on the Urb for Resident Pensioners, i.e. low charges , no charges. Have noticed a posting from Alan about 6 months ago praising Santander and wondered if this was still the case. Thanks
Yes we are still with Santander, and still pleased with them. My Wife's pension is paid into the account and that entitles us to free banking, The only cost I have incurred was a few cents to transfer a couple of thousand Euros into an account of a friend of ours who uses a different bank. Also realized that while with Lloyds my Wife's pension arrived every fourth Wednesday, with Santander it is normally in our account on the Monday morning of the fourth week. Staff ever so helpful and friendly, Good English spoken. Also one Debit Card given free of charge.
If you need to know anything specific, I will try to answer.
Hi Alan, Thanks very much for your reply, exactly the kind of information I was looking for. sounds good to me. Thanks x
I can also recommend Santander, yep, free banking if you pay your Pension in, also your card is a Master (credit) card.
