Re: Money Moving Post Brexit

Ever since buying a house here (1998) we've had money paid into UK banks and periodically transferred blocks here as required every a few months.

Then I edited that post and must have accidentally deleted the other suggestions. George repaired a tyre for me about...

Locally, my go-to company is Auto-Club (2nd choice is Kalives Travel). I always deal directly with th...
