Hi just looking for a bit of advice.  Have a property in terreros and need to open a new bank account.  I'm resident in the UK but need a Spanish account for my bills etc.  I looked at santander but the account fees are 16 euro  month so was looking for an alternative.  Any suggestions or tips?

Have you looked at Openbank?  It is the online division of Santander.  No charges, easy to operate via phone or computer.  The only thing is, I'm not sure if it is available to non-residents.  The other one is BBVA online.  Again not sure if you have to be resident but there are no charges for day to day banking.

Cajamar Wefferant account.  Online account.   Free banking. Easy to use app.  Staff helpful to set it up in branch.  We use Mojacar but other branches have English speaking staff.  Pay all our direct debits, transfer money in and between accounts,, use of cashpoints etc.

I second this. 

We joined Cajamar before the Wefferent account, but now we have this account and it’s perfect for us, and no charges for our uses.  Our bills are paid by direct debit and all runs smoothly.

 When I had an issue I phoned their helpline and was helped by an assistant who spoke English perfectly. We use the branch in Los Gallardos where Maria speaks excellent English. But mostly we use the atm there. Cannot praise their service enough.
