Hi, some advice please.

Just been charged €40 again by Sabadell in charges. I was wondering does anyone use a UK bank to pay Direct Debits and such, indeed is it possible? If so any pros or cons. TIA

I'm sure there is a lady on the forum uses Transferwise to pay her bills. They don't doDirect debits but I know Currencies direct do because I use them.
I am that lady, who uses Transferwise.
I just pay my bills online, as they come in online, using a Mastercard Debit card, issued by my Transferwise Borderless account.
Personally, I don't like direct debits - I have been stung in the past, so now choose to pay my bills as I go along, but friends of mine would be very interested to hear more about how the direct debit facility works with Currencies Direct.

Hi, we're in the process of cancelling our Sabadell key account (non res) because of their obscene charges, we're currently paying €140 per year. :evil:

We've opened a N26 fee free online account which provides a Spanish IBAN so that we can pay our Spanish bills by direct debits. We can fund the N26 account using Transferwise which gives a very good exchange rate/commission in comparison to other services. We already have a UK Santander 123 account which allows fee free use of any Santander ATM in mainland Spain and gives a commission free Visa rate for conversion. We'll cancel the Sabadell account once all our direct debits are in place. 8)
