    thanks in advance


    HSBC???? "the worlds local bank"?? or Santander is retty big over there...think it might be the same as a bank over here...abbey nat or summat...not too sure

    Nationwide the other banks charges u even HSBC

    open a local account with a local bank probably,when he gets there. Santander comes to mind linked to A&L, Braford and Bingley also Abbey

    do you know if he can put money into the account also, he will be earning whilst there so needs somewhere to bank his earnings

    We live in Malaga and UK and have found that both Lloydstsb and Halifax dont charge for money both ways.
    Not sure if they are in Canaries though
