A few years ago, when I decided to move to Spain for work, the online world wasn’t as developed as it is now. There was lots of information on the internet but few applications that allowed you to carry out tasks, make the best use of your time, etc.
When I moved, I was faced with a countless number of tasks in those first months. Truthfully, it was quite bewildering, but with a healthy dose of patience and organisation I was able to succeed. I set myself a small goal each day: finding an apartment, organising utilities, etc.
During this time, I was plagued by doubts and I felt quite lost. I knew hardly no-one, and I also didn’t want to be constantly asking favours from the few people I did know. But the other day, a friend of mine told me about something that surprised me, and I immediately thought: ‘if only I had had that when I arrived in Spain!’.
I’m talking about an information helpline for almost anything you can think of. A service you can call, for example, if you have questions about the available emergency services, where to go to set up your electricity, where to change currency, etc. An information helpline in Spain that is able to assist you 24/7 and 365 days of the year. Doesn’t that seem incredible? Well, it exists. And it’s as simple as being a customer of HolaBank. One of the best banks in Spain.
This bank, specifically tailored for all foreigners who plan to spend some time in Spain, can provide a range of added value services just for being a customer through their club, Club Holabank.
Among its service you will find the information helpline but they can help you with many other tasks that you will have to take care of when you arrive in Spain (and let me tell you, this is sometimes not easy since very few people will be able to assist you in your own language). So, because I thought it was a great idea, I decided to share it with you.
