I am currently living in Spain. I will be returning to the states as of summer 2010. All my money is in American banks.
Is there something I can do to avoid fees? If not, what would be the best solution so as to keep them to a minimum?
I have an online ING Direct account, with one of my banks attached to it. 1. Could I withdraw money from the ING location that is near where I am now?
2. Could I open a Spanish account, and use the online ING account to transfer funds between the two? I would like to get a Spanish Debit card.
