First time using the forum, hello to all. We are moving to the Torrox area in November and were wondering if anyone has any advice regarding opening a Spanish Bank account. In particular, which Bank, for some one with a very limited command of Spanish, and is cheapest for transfering money too, from the Uk. Thanks

Knuckles, its 45c here and almost unbearable!!! Theres no pleasing us is there, too cold, too wet, too hot.....!!!!!! Right now the thought of a bit of rain and a nice cool breeze instead of a fan oven when the door is open is wonderful :rolleyes:

Sorry to burst your bubble :p Internet in spain is a lot worse than in the UK. In our case it's bloody awefull. :focus:


Welcome to the board :)
I have some good news for you Knuckles :eek:. I'm with Telecom ADSL and the connection is ok. Having said that, mine went down for 18 hrs the other day which is a rarity. There are the odd hiccups now and again :D:D but usually not too bad. Someone mentioned it's because we are supposed to have the best climate in Europe?! How that makes a difference I don't know:noidea:

I'm sure there is a Sol bank on the Costa?! I say that because there were 2 now only one. I think it's still open...we had a lot of new banks open but one by one they are closing except the well established ones. Not too up on the pueblo tho'. I'm with La Caixa and the girls are lovely and speak english. It cost my son €15 to send me money the other day :cheer2:.

Weather on the Costa is 30 deg in the shade at the mo and rising...lol. It's the night time temp that really saps the energy. Slept all the night with the fan on me:smokin:

Hi Knuckles and welcome to the forum! Cute name by the way!!:D

There's lots of posts on here regarding internet connections, etc....it's a bit of a bugbear for some of us, I'm afraid - along with the joys of Telefonica and Fenosa. Something else for you to look forward to!!:p
