Fee free Euro account
19th Nov, 2014 at 2:09pm
 
Hi there,

Does anyone know if a fee free Euro account can be opened in the UK to pay in s? I found that Barclays offer one but there are maintenance charges per quarter. I was looking for something that is totally fee free. Maybe such a thing doesn't exist.

Many thanks,

it's a good question. a very basic, even 'Savings' account, with a cashcard/debitcard, would be useful to me.

This rang a bell - I cannot remember if I opened one of these years ago ... Anyway, Citibank may be worth a look:

Hi there,

Unfortunately the US Dollar and Euro current account is currently unavailable for new clients unless it is opened alongside a Citigold Current Account.

Citigold current account is available free of charge if you have an average monthly balance of 75,000 (or currency equivalent) across all your Citi accounts, including investments, or you hold an account with Citi International Personal Bank in London, Jersey or Switzerland. If you don't meet either of these criteria, a monthly fee of 25 will apply.

Kind of rules me out for wanting to pay the odd hundred 's in from time to time! Looks like Barclays with its maintenance fee of 7 per quarter is the other alternative but still not fee free!

Cheers

i didn't know they had closed them, but i'm not surprised.
i would quite like to have an account set up in France/Holland that i could access when in the Eurozone. but like any stoozer, i don't really want to pay a fee Wink
