Re: Bank account in Basel

When I first got here, I opened accounts in Euro, Franc and Sterling. Within a year, I'd closed the foreign currency accounts. Unless you're doing a huge volume of transactions, it just isn't worth it.

I've no complaints over the exchange rate I get for taking Euro out of a UBS cash machine. Taking Euro out of a French or German cash machine is when I really get hit.
