Default Halifax

Not to sure where to post this, but I'm sure Pollensa will move it to the appropriate place.

I was so disappointed with the Halifax in PP. No, I didn't go in, but every window had a poster on it in English, nothing written in Spanish at all! The English would be up in arms if a bank opened up in our local town with everything advertised in a foreign language. And to top it all, that neon blue signage lit up the whole street.

Okay, whinge over. :\

Does it have an ATM outside ?
Does anyone know if I'm going to be able to draw money out of my account without being charged a fee - here's hoping anyway

I wouldn't hold your breath... I saw the halifax when in PP 2 weeks ago and when I came back home I went into my local branch to ask if I would be able to use PP branch services as I do at home but the answer was an emphatic NO. I've previously asked this question at Barclays too as they have a branch in Los Christianos, Tenerife (where I holiday in winter) but again I was told that UK customers couldn't access services like they would do at home. Pity really as we're told Mir is going to become a Barclays branch - it would be very handy for me as I often stay at Eolo when in PP. Still it is a few years since I asked at Barclays so maybe things have moved on and the situation may be different, I'll ask again

Keep an eye on Santander and Abbey as we were told that they should be introducing free transfers between UK and Spanish accounts on a limited basis at some point

Don't think it had an Atm when I was there recently

Well to answer my own question.
I called in last week, there isn't an ATM on the outside - none inside either. The lady on the desk told me to use the ATM's on the Formentor Road !

Is the nearest Santander bank to Puerto Pollenca in the old town, Pollenca ?

I am with the Abbey in the UK and that information could be very useful....Thank You.

I think the Santandar bank is on the main road just before the roundabout at the marina - on the left before you get to Mir's liquor store.

Thanks Sandy. One of the apartments we intend to view in August is very near there on JoanXX111, so that would be rather useful.
