Re: UK debit or credit cards.

I have used my Nationwide flexiplus debit card ( it used to be basic flexi but upgraded when offered what I considered a good deal for 13 pounds sterling per month which you can easily make up especially when drawing larger amounts over time. ( I usually draw between 30k and above then transfer it i...

Re: Health cover options

As an after thought on my friends observations re age.. If I might add there is a lesson for all of those under seventy to contact Peter while you have time to enquire about health insurance or loose out when the cover will be needed most in your later years. I fortunately have cover and intend to k...

Re: Health cover options

Hello Peter, Than you for your much appreciated response and valued information. I have already passed on your advice and he is going to go for the benefits you suggest. He will be using the private hospital facilities whenever possible / convenient so it really does make sense to go for the maximum...

800K Banking Facility.

Hi Marshbag, I consider opening the 'Happy Seniors Account', mentioned by you. Of course there is this nagging doubt whether Udon immigration will accept the 800,000 k in this account type for the annual extension of the visa. What is your experience? Have you successfully used this account? Many t...

800K Banking Facility.

;) We all have our own ideas on how it works best for us but I ask:- Is it really worth it? OK the monthly dividend of 2140 Baht/month works out to be 3.21% on 800K (simple interest) but one still must import currency to live.

800K Banking Facility.

I used my passport and took along a signed copy of my wifes house papers in case they needed it for proof of my residence, they did not need this.

I am already registered with the branch, and they have my unchanged details in any case from opening my accounts.
