Looking for recommendations for a Bank to switch to who do not charge exorbitant fees . 

I recently discovered that my bank Bankia have be been charging me €14 monthly fee without notifying me of the change  & despite agreeing no fees which be charged  when I opened my account just over 1 year ago. 😤

Otherwise, any information on how to find a banking system eg online etc where I can avoid these exorbitant fees for nothing ?

I highly recommend Cajamar bank. No fees even for non residents. Google website.

Hello

I use BBVA online.

I get charged €5 every January and all my bills are taken out too.

Might be worth a look 👀

Sue 😘

Thank you . I didn't receive any emails etc from them unfortunately as would not have otherwise allowed €100 to be taken from my account since Feb. 

I will go to see them to discuss but they are not always open & don't answer phones. Not too impressed with customer services to be honest. 

I was promised that I had a no fee account also.
