    For those folks that dont like to pay for the use of ATM'S in Europe. HSBC have a current account called Advance. It costs £12.00 a month to be in it but you are not charged at European ATM'S. European ATM charges vary from £1.75 too £5.00 per transaction.

    There are also other benefits, for example, Travel Insurance, Breakdown Insurance, Preferential Interest Rates (The higher amount of interest that you make on your savings account pays for the Advance Account) etc etc. You must be under 70 years old. It maybe worth checking.

    It's a brilliant account, The best bit I like is that the online account shows you what DD, cheques or SO
    are being paid out of the account the next day so you keep all your dosh in the savings account and transfer just the amount you want.

    Also you can transfer funds to most other bank/credit cards accounts within seconds :Smile:

    Hi all,

    For years we have been with the Norwich & Peterborough Building Society, who charged for card use abroad, and a fee on the amount drawn, and that's why we went to the Nationwide. Just as we lost fee free transactions abroad with the Nationwide, the N&P announced fee free transactions abroad with their Gold Current Account :thumb:

    It might be of help to some of you in the East Anglia area, where branches are plentiful.

    Cheers,

    Jock.
