Opening an account ahead of your arrival: Request an account with private bank Banca March.

While IE maintains various agreements with banks in Spain, if you wish tu have us open a bank account for you ahead of  your arrival, then you should request a bank account with Banca March.  A private bank with headquarters in Mallorca, Banca March offers premium service in both English and Spanish.  By opening an account ahead of your arrival, you will be able to send yourself funds from your home country so they’re here and ready for use as soon as your plane touches down at Barajas International.

Please note we are not able to open bank accounts with savings bank Caja Madrid before you are physically in Spain due to Bank of Spain (Spain’s Central Bank) regulations.
