Sorry if this has been covered previously but may I ask a question to those who may know.

If one had an HSBC account in the UK and also an account with HSBC in the TRNC then are money transfers free i.e: transferring larger ammounts of money back to my HSBC account in the uk.

I do have an account with another bank in the TRNC but the costs appear to be very excessive. Many thanks.

Hi I am Premier HSBC & was assured by HSBC UK that I could transfer on the internet to my HSBC Girne a/c free of charge - however HSBC Turkey applied charges at a later date which obviously HSBC UK had no control over and were not able to refund.

However now I use telephone banking to transfer from UK to Cyprus which is definitely free and I have been informed by Julie at HSBC Girne that she can transfer free in the other direction although I have had not had any direct experience of doing this yet.

You should not be charged from premier to premier.



This happened to me at Girne and the charge was taken 2 months after the transaction.



When I asked them what it was for they said it was the transfer.



I told them I DON`T THINK SO...........they had a chat amongst themselves ( Julie wasn`t there at the time ) and they reversed the charge.



Wyn, If was premier to premier you want to query it with them.



If you want to contact me off board that`s ok.
