Re: Opening a bank account on arrival, which bank is the cheapest on fees!?

You can open a GBP account online linked to your CHF account and make transfers online. I use it to send/receive GBP to and from the UK without exchange loss. Only the fees are still charges which are about 2 to the UK from CH online.
Are their rates pretty decent?

...they're storing the EUR either way....
...and they're charging commission either way, too. Seems like the clerk was right however you look at it
