hi, i've been looking around but can't seem to find a topic on this! We've been here 8 months now, loving it, despite watching all the pennies (or cents). Anyway, at the end of June we got charged 50CHF for "frais retrait bancomat" which i see is cash withdrawels, and 18CHF for "frais de tenue de compte" which is cost of having an acoount i think. We had no warning that these were coming out of account, the bank (cantonal) just took it out. This is on top of the 80CHF a year for having a maestro card each. I still don't understand this, is this normal? We haven't used the card abroad, but it seems like a lot of money to be charged, especially the cash withdrawel. Has anyone else had this? Thanks in advance! xx
Openning a back account is signing a contract with a back. In that contract, all is explained. A lot of people do NOT read for what they sign for. If you complain to your back for the current charges, they will refer you to your contract.
