Re: New CaixaBank fees ... time to change banks?

Very helpful Steve. Is it possible to use your own UK bank account to pay direct debits or will they just not allow it?

Re: Why some Spanish Bank Accounts are being blocked

I cannot get into my account because the phone number they have begins with 0 instead of *44 so the code bit doesn't work. Will need to go in and fix it when I return in April

Re: TRAINS

I see that Spain is to reduce its AVE train fares. Piloting Madrid to Barcelona from April as not enough folk using them due to air fares being cheaper. Intend to roll out if this is successful
