To be fair I pay for my UK account, its more expensive than €72 per annum I pay in Spain. But I get double the benefits back in free travel insurance etc. That said my UK bank has a lot do do maintaining the DDs etc there is more movement in one month than annually in Spain. I know it probably sounding like a moan but, what I am saying that in 15 years I have usually managed to get free banking but, the goal posts always seem to move. The other thing is banks use our money as capital, so they get the interest and benefits. So if a company like Transferwise sets up an account which creates debate and competition that is good.
