Cash Cards

(1) Caixa Bank started charging 2€ for my cash withdrawals on my Sabadell debit card last April. I queried it with my bank at the time as all Servired ATM withdrawals were supposed to be free, and they said that some banks were introducing charges to use other cards. Since then, I have only used the Sabadell bank for withdrawing cash. BW

(2)  You won’t pay commission if your bank is in the same Group as your own Bank.  For example, Banco Sabadellis in the same Group as Solbank.  Others will charge, though you ought to be able to cancel before you continue.   Mary


Services on a Phone ?

If you are asking about your own house, you would need to sign up to a internet provider and let your (trusted) visitors know your password. However, if a ‘trusted’ visitor is a near neighbour they would also be able to use it at all times from their own house, reducing your bandwidth and slowing you down. They could also sit in a vehicle close by and connect. Horror of horrors they could pass it on to others without your knowledge…. who do you trust?

If you are visiting a house without wifi there is no way to connect your phone or laptop unless you have the ability to connect through your mobile provider or a dongle and have a decent phone signal. This is okay for simple stuff like checking emails but Skype and Facetime and Streaming Video eat up your minutes at an alarming rate.

If you let someone know your password, change the password soon afterwards, it’s quite easy to do,

Cheers, Keith, dunroaminforabit, wotsapninatgmaildotcom
